Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Structural or Geosystems Engineering
School of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Georgia Institute of Technology

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, announces the recruitment for a tenure-track faculty position in Structural or Geosystems Engineering. The School is seeking to expand its research and teaching expertise in core areas of these specialties as well as in interdisciplinary areas that address global grand challenges. Preference will be given to candidates with application expertise in one or more of the School’s interdisciplinary research emphases — big data and smart systems, energy stewardship, healthy communities and sustainable cities, and resilient systems and communities (see http://www.ce.gatech.edu/research) — and those that align with the core research areas of the Institute (see http://www.research.gatech.edu/areas).

  • Structural Engineering/Mechanics/Materials: Especially in large-scale experimental testing; structural design to mitigate impacts of natural and man-made hazards; sustainability in structural design; resilient infrastructure systems; and innovative infrastructure materials.

  • Geosystems Engineering: Especially in sustainability and resilience of subsurface infrastructure systems subjected to natural and man-made hazards, including geotechnical earthquake engineering; new laboratory and field developments at the confluence of sensors; IT, high-performance computing and modeling; subsurface solutions to global problems of energy generation, capture, storage and transmission; engineered geomaterials; fundamental bio-thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical coupled processes applied to geotechnical design.

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Tech has approximately 700 undergraduate students, 400 graduate students, and 55 tenure-track faculty.

Candidates must have completed a doctoral degree in Civil Engineering or related field by August 15, 2016, and will have either demonstrated, or shown a clear potential, for creative and independent research that would lead to a strong, extramurally funded research program and national and international recognition. Incumbents will teach both undergraduate and graduate courses. Application screening begins on November 1, 2015, and will continue until December 1, 2015 or until the positions are filled. Early submissions are encouraged.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, one-page statement of research interests, one-page statement of teaching experience and interests, and names/contact information of four references in a single PDF file to: FacultySearch@ce.gatech.edu.

Please format the file name as {lastname,initials}_Faculty_Search_App.pdf and include “CEE Faculty Search” and your area of specialization (e.g., “Structures”) in the subject line of the e-mail.


The Georgia Institute of Technology is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer, and applications from women and under-represented minorities are encouraged.
