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 Architectural 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 individual in this position is expected to perform a combination of duties related to teaching and research in one or more of the Architectural Engineering (AE) disciplines of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems; electrical and lighting systems; building envelopes; building energy systems; or related areas.
An emphasis in Architectural Engineering (AE) will provide students with breadth and depth in the engineering sciences of buildings and their systems: structural systems; heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems; electrical and lighting systems; construction engineering and management. The program will emphasize integration across architectural engineering disciplines as well as with the existing civil engineering and construction engineering programs. The AE program will allow students to specialize in a chosen discipline while gaining the knowledge and skills to become leaders in the sustainable design and construction of buildings.
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.
