The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) and the Utah Water Research Laboratory (UWRL) at Utah State University (USU) invite applications for a cluster hire of three positions at the Assistant Tenure Track or Associate Professor levels. We seek candidates whose convergent research will generate data-driven, collaborative, sustainable, and holistic solutions to water quantity, quality, and management problems in the face of growing population, aging infrastructure, changing climate, and changing societal values. These are academic-year (9 month) appointments with an anticipated start date of August 2020.
We seek candidates who can significantly contribute to scholarship and teaching in the broad topical areas of water resources engineering, environmental engineering, and/or hydraulic engineering. Successful candidates must articulate a vision for and show how their research and teaching in one or more of the areas below will: 1) yield data-driven, collaborative, sustainable, and holistic solutions; 2) leverage existing strengths throughout USU in hydrology, hydraulics, hydro informatics, water resources management, irrigation, water quality, and environmental engineering; and 3) improve CEE and USU capabilities to solve interdisciplinary water problems now and in the future. Areas of work may include:
To promote transdisciplinary and convergent research, we encourage team applications from groups of up to three candidates, which may include dual career partners. Each applicant must apply individually but articulate in their individual 3-page research statement how some or all of their research integrates with the other team members.
Inquiries about this announcement may be made to:
