Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering
Posted until filled, with review of applications to begin January 25, 2018
Full Time/Part Time
The Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering at the Missouri University of Science & Technology (Missouri S&T) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in geotechnical engineering starting from August 2018. Applicants from all areas of geotechnical engineering or geomechanics will be considered, and the individual's intellectual depth and promise in both research and teaching are of the highest priority. Candidates in emerging areas relevant to multi-scale characterization; modeling and assessment of seismic activity and natural hazard prevention/mitigation; geo-environmental engineering, such as municipal solid waste landfills; retaining walls and deep foundations are strongly encouraged to apply. The appointment is anticipated to be filled at the assistant professor level.
The successful candidate will be expected to develop an active, externally-funded research program and have a strong commitment to teaching excellence at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Candidates must have an earned undergraduate degree in engineering from an ABET/EAC accredited program or equivalent and an earned PhD in civil engineering or a closely related field with a program of study and research that emphasized geotechnical engineering and geomechanics, including experimentation and computation. Superior communication and interpersonal skills, leadership capabilities, and the ability to engage in collaborative and interdisciplinary research are required. The successful candidate will be expected to collaborate with other engineering disciplines such as mining, petroleum, chemical, biological, and geological engineering. Collaboration with other fields of science including chemistry, physics, and mathematics are also considered a plus. Practical experience will be highly valued, as is professional licensure. Licensure as a professional engineer, or similar, is expected within six years of the appointment.
As a former school of mines, our program finds its home on a campus with many geo-disciplines, and laboratory research facilities are a strength. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to be involved in interdisciplinary research within the department and across campus, including collaborative opportunities with campus research centers such as two Tier-1 University Transportation Centers ( http://recast.mst.edu/ , (INSPIRE), the Center for Research on Energy and Environmental ( http://CREE.mst.edu/ ), the Center for Infrastructure Engineering Studies ( http://cies.mst.edu/ ), the Rock Mechanics Center ( http://rockmech.mst.edu ), and the Materials Research Center ( http://mrc.mst.edu/ ). The successful candidate will have the potential to access available matching research funds by being an active member of one or more of these Centers. The Department's civil engineering program is highly ranked among the undergraduate and graduate programs by the U.S. News and World Report.

Missouri S&T is one of the nation's leading research universities. Located about 100 miles west of St. Louis in the community of Rolla, Missouri S&T is an accessible, safe and friendly campus surrounded by Ozarks scenery. Missouri S&T offers degrees in engineering, the sciences, liberal arts, humanities and business, with master's and Ph.D. programs available in many of the science and engineering programs and master's degrees in biological sciences, business administration and technical communication. With nearly 9,000 students enrolled online and on campus, Missouri S&T is big enough to accommodate a diverse population but small enough for individuals to stand out. Missouri S&T seeks to meet the needs of dual-career couples.
Review of applications will begin on January 25, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates should electronically submit an application consisting of a cover letter, current curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests and goals, and complete contact information for five references to the Missouri University of Science and Technology's Human Resource Office at http://hr.mst.edu/careers/academic/ . All submitted application materials must have the position reference number 00029859 in order to be processed. Acceptable electronic formats that can be used for email attachments include PDF and Word; hard copy application materials will not be accepted.
The final candidate is required to provide copies of official transcript(s) for any college degree(s) listed in application materials submitted. Copies of transcript(s) should be provided prior to the start of employment. In addition, the final candidate may be required to verify other credentials listed in application materials.
Failure to provide official transcript(s) or other required verification may result in the withdrawal of the job offer.
All job offers are contingent upon successful completion of a criminal background check.
