The University of Texas at Austin Department of Civil, Architectural and
Environmental Engineering (CAEE) invites applications for a tenure-track
position at the assistant professor level. We seek candidates with a
construction engineering and project management background to conduct
transformative research aimed at drastically improving the sustainability and
reliability of construction projects by rethinking the way the built
environment is planned, designed, built, operated, maintained, and/or
decommissioned. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the
Planning and execution of infrastructure projects related to green energy,
disaster response, disaster recovery, and/or climate change adaptation.
Sustainability and reliability of construction projects.
Novel construction engineering or management technologies.
Research at the interfaces of construction engineering, project
management, technology, and/or sustainability.
The multi-disciplinary nature of this research area will require collaboration
with other researchers within and outside the Cockrell School of Engineering.
The successful candidate is expected to teach undergraduate and graduate
courses in construction engineering and project management to a diverse
student population in the CAEE department, develop a sustainable sponsored
research program, mentor graduate students, collaborate with other faculty
from a wide range of backgrounds within and outside of the CAEE department,
and be involved in service to the school, university, and the profession.
Though preference will be given to applicants at the assistant professor rank,
truly exceptional candidates at higher ranks will also be considered.
The department and the Cockrell School of Engineering are committed to
building a diverse and inclusive environment. We are interested in candidates
who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education
through their teaching, research, and service activities.
