The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Brigham Young University (BYU) seeks applications from highly qualified candidates for two continuing-status-track faculty positions in structural engineering. The department has an immediate need in the structural engineering area but will consider outstanding candidates in other disciplines. The department is also interested in identifying potential candidates for future positions in environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and/or water resources engineering. An earned doctorate in civil engineering or in a closely related field is required. Candidates must have a strong commitment to BYU and its mission (http://aims.byu.edu/mission_statement). Successful candidates will have a robust research focus and excellent teaching skills.
Teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses primarily in the area of expertise.
Developing a strong, externally funded research program wherein both graduate and undergraduate students are mentored and research results are published in top journals.
Making significant contributions to professional societies and the engineering profession as well as participating in service opportunities within the department, college, and university.
The department anticipates filling the positions at the assistant or associate professor rank. Initial rank will be consistent with qualifications and experience. BYU, an equal opportunity employer, requires all faculty to observe the university’s Honor Code and Dress & Grooming Standards (https://honorcode.byu.edu/). Preference is given to qualified members of the sponsoring church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in good standing.
Interested applicants must attach a current curriculum vitae, a statement of research objectives, and a statement of teaching objectives. Questions and correspondence should be addressed to Dr. Kyle Rollins, Chair, Faculty Search Committee, BYU, 430 EB, Provo, UT 84602, email@example.com.
