The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Brigham Young University (BYU) seeks applications from highly qualified candidates for a continuing-status-track faculty position in structural engineering. The department provides a world-class education in the traditional approaches of structural design and analysis and is seeking to complement current expertise through new and emerging areas including but not limited to
artificial intelligence and big data applications
new, innovative, active materials
large-scale predictive modeling
natural hazard mitigation and design
sustainable and resilient design and construction
non-destructive testing and evaluation
new testing and design methods
retrofitting and rehabilitating structures
Candidates with strong academic, research interest, and expertise in all areas of the broad field of structural engineering are encouraged to apply. The department will also consider outstanding candidates in other disciplines and is interested in identifying potential candidates for future positions in environmental, geotechnical, transportation, and/or water resources engineering. We also seek candidates with exceptional teaching skills and a strong commitment to undergraduate education.
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.
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 and 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.
