Civil Engineering Faculty - Tenure Track

The vision of the College of Engineering and Science at Louisiana Tech University is to be a world leader in integrating engineering and science in education and research. The College is experiencing significant growth in several program areas and is undertaking an aggressive faculty recruiting campaign to attract culturally and academically diverse faculty of the highest caliber. Construction of a new $40M integrated engineering and science education building providing the College an additional 128,000 square feet of educational space is underway with an anticipated occupancy for fall 2019. To build a diverse workforce the College encourages applications from individuals with disabilities, minorities, veterans and women. See the College website for more information:

As part of this effort, the College invites applications for a tenure track, assistant professor faculty position in the Civil Engineering Program. Candidates must hold a doctorate or equivalent degree in Civil Engineering, or in a field with significant overlap. Expertise and candidate experience in the fields of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering are of particular interest. Candidates with expertise relevant to the university's research centers who also place a high value on teaching quality and student interaction are of particular interest. These centers include micromanufacturing, biotechnology, nanotechnology, engineering education, and trenchless technology.

Successful tenure-track candidates are expected to actively participate in multidisciplinary research efforts in the College; initiate, build and sustain an externally funded research program; and supervise masters and doctoral students. Excellent written and oral communication skills, strong teaching skills, and a commitment to high-quality university and professional service are also expected.

The College is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.
