Construction Engineering And Management (Ce&M) Faculty Position
Department Of Civil And Environmental Engineering
The University of Delaware
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering invites applications for a continuing-track faculty position in Construction Engineering and Management (CE&M) at the assistant professor level starting Fall 2018. UD’s new four year bachelor’s program in CE&M launched this Fall, 2017 - the successful candidate will be among the first faculty in the program. As such the successful candidate will be responsible for implementation, development and refinement of core program technical classes in CE&M and select engineering foundation classes. Opportunities also exist for participation in the development of a robust graduate program, which is planned for future academic years.
The successful applicant will assume a non-tenure track position which will be primarily teaching and service oriented. As such, the candidate is expected to develop and deliver technical courses in the CE&M curriculum, to mentor students and advise student organizations, to liaise with industry partners and program stakeholders and to maintain involvement in scholarly and/or professional activities. It is desired for the successful applicant to have comprehensive knowledge and experience in construction engineering and management through a combination of formal education and practical experience. Education will have ideally culminated with an earned research-oriented doctoral degree.
The CE&M program builds on the established strengths of UD’s Civil Engineering program and has strong industrial support locally and regionally. Numerous opportunities exist to interact with industry professionals throughout the Northeast corridor and the Mid-Atlantic region. There is also significant opportunity for multidisciplinary collaboration within University. Specifically, there are many opportunities for collaboration within the Department, which has 30 faculty members, 550 undergraduate students, and over 100 full-time graduate students and research associates. Active research programs for potential collaboration exist in structural, geotechnical, environmental, coastal, infrastructure systems, railroad engineering, and transportation engineering. Collaborative opportunities also exist throughout the University with faculty from other Colleges, Departments and Programs. Notably, collaborative opportunities exist with faculty from the Lerner College of Business and Economics, and with faculty from the Horn Program in Entrepreneurship.
