The School of Civil and Construction Engineering at Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon, is expanding to further increase the impact of its mission of research and education and invites applications for a full-time (1.0 FTE), 9-month Assistant Professor position in Structural Engineering to begin in Fall 2017. Outstanding candidates may also be considered at the rank of Associate or Full Professor. Hire with tenure requires candidate's dossier to be successfully reviewed by the Promotion and Tenure Committee and Office of Academic Affairs.
The successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to teach and conduct research in the general area of structural engineering. We are particularly interested in candidates with demonstrated expertise in emerging and innovative approaches that improve the resilience of structural systems affected by natural and man-made hazards, multi-functional structural components to optimize the interaction of structures with their environment, or other areas of experimental research in structural systems and components.
The OSU College of Engineering has committed to being recognized as a national model of inclusivity and collaboration. We strive to develop a community of faculty, students, and staff that is inclusive, collaborative, diverse, and centered on student success. As such, we seek applicants who will broaden our capacity to advance student success across individual identities, racial/ethnic categories and socioeconomic backgrounds.
The School of Civil and Construction Engineering is home to the Kiewit Center for Infrastructure and Transportation and the O.H. Hinsdale Wave Research Center. A new facility named the Complex for Resilient Infrastructure and Safety (CRIS) is currently under development. The School offers B.S., M.S., M. Eng., and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering, as well as a B.S. degree in Construction Engineering Management. The School has approximately 1000 undergraduate and 185 graduate students. The faculty includes 39 members, with areas of specialization that include construction engineering management, engineering education, geomatics engineering, geotechnical engineering, infrastructure materials engineering, ocean and coastal engineering, structural engineering, surveying, transportation engineering, and water resources engineering.
