The Department of Engineering in the College of Science and Engineering invites applications for one tenure-track engineering faculty position for a person with a background in civil engineering at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level. The expected starting date will be Fall 2020. The successful candidate will be expected to lead in the development of the new Bachelor of Science Program in Civil Engineering at TAMU-CC, including curriculum development and refinement and teaching undergraduate engineering courses and graduate-level courses in geospatial computing as appropriate. The candidate will be expected to develop externally funded research programs in remote sensing and with applications in agricultural areas or disaster response. The successful candidate will be encouraged to explore opportunities developing interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research in autonomous systems, including collaborated research with scientists at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Research Center - Corpus Christi in agricultural automation and precision agriculture. Rank, salary and granting of tenure will be commensurate with the record of the successful candidate.
Required qualifications include (a) an earned Ph.D. degree in civil engineering or a related field; (b) an established record of scholarship with significant journal publications commensurate with the candidate's level; and (c) a track record of remote sensing in civil engineering or geomatics engineering. Preferred qualifications are experience in interdisciplinary research and with government or industrial research laboratories, and/or demonstrated expertise in use of unmanned aircraft systems for research in agricultural automation, precision agriculture or disaster response.
