Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Environmental & Ecological Engineering

American Society of Civil Engineers
Raleigh, NC

The Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering (BAE) in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) and the College of Engineering (COE) at North Carolina State University invites qualified applicants for a 9-month Tenure-Track Assistant Professor (100% academic appointment) in the area of environmental and ecological engineering. The successful candidate will teach courses across the curriculum in both the ABET-accredited Biological Engineering (BE) degree program and the Agricultural & Environmental Technology (AET) degree program. Potential courses include hydrology, water management, hydrologic/hydraulic modeling, geomatics, and introduction to software tools for engineering design and land management.

This position will be key to training the next generation of BE and AET graduates to fill significant future employment demands in the environmental and ecological engineering fields. The position has the potential to interface with a number of local government agencies and consulting firms in the Research Triangle Park area to better connect the BAE program to groups that hire our students. This position will have opportunities to collaborate on academic initiatives with multiple departments in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) and the College of Engineering (COE).






Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Biological and Agricultural Engineering or an equivalent engineering discipline with a specific focus in ecological and/or environmental engineering. ABD Candidates who are very close to completion of their PhD degree in Biological and Agricultural Engineering (or an equivalent engineering discipline) will be considered at the Instructor rank, consistent with appointment terms as specified in the governing University policy on Academic Ranks.

Applicants will be expected to demonstrate the potential to be recognized for distinction in teaching, the ability to a successful classroom teaching program, pursue appropriate scholarly activities (i.e. improvements in teaching techniques, pedagogical studies, curriculum development, curriculum analysis, mentoring undergraduate research, and outcomes assessment), and service-type contributions to the department, college, university and profession. Applicants should also have a strong commitment to teaching excellence and an interest in on-line course development and instruction and a strong interest in working with both undergraduate and graduate students.

To apply for this position, go to http://jobs.ncsu.edu and provide the following: (a) cover letter; (b) curriculum vitae; (c) teaching philosophy statement, and (d) contact information for three references. Confidential inquiries and nominations should be directed to Dr. Francois Birgand, Search Committee Chair, birgand@ncsu.edu or call (919) 513-2499.
