The Myers-Lawson School of Construction (MLSoC) is seeking applicants for an Assistant, Associate or Full Professor, whose research and teaching interests align with a new campus-wide, multi-disciplinary focus on Intelligent Infrastructure for Human-centered Communities. This Destination Area for research and education has been parsed into four primary themes: Ubiquitous Mobility, Automated Vehicle Systems, Energy, and Smart Design and Construction. We seek an individual with primary interests in the Smart Design and Construction area whose teaching, research, and industry engagement will support an intelligent, adaptable, and sustainable, human-centric built environment. State-of-the-art facilities are being constructed to support this domain and participating faculty. It is therefore preferred that the candidate have teaching, research, and/or industry experience with emerging processes and technologies such as digital construction, smart buildings and building performance, production systems, lean construction, and robotics, augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR), robotic total station (RTS) and global positioning (GNSS), lasers, digital tracking, digital and additive manufacturing, wearables, drones, or photogrammetry. An individual with a proven record of collaboration, scholarship, research funding, and teaching effectiveness, and who shares our core values of service and "hands-on, minds-on" learning, is preferred.
