The Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) (https: // engineering.unl.edu/durhamschool) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of assistant professor in the area of Building Structures beginning in Fall 2022. The Durham School is co-located in two cities, Lincoln and Omaha, which are approximately 50 miles apart. With approximately 30 faculty, 500 undergraduate students, and 100 graduate students, the Durham School is the only endowed academic unit ($30 million) in the UNL College of Engineering and has strong ties with several world-class architecture/engineering/construction firms, many of which are headquartered in Omaha, including HDR, DLR, Leo A Daly, Kiewit, J.E. Dunn, McCarthy, and many others. A prime example of the strength of our collaboration with industry is that the capstone course in the school's architectural engineering program has been a recipient of the NCEES Engineering Education Award in five of the last six years; the Durham School is the only one to have won the $25k Grand Prize more than once.

The successful candidate is expected to be based in Omaha and to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the Durham School; conduct original impactful research; actively participate in service, outreach, and community engagement; and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in all areas of the university mission.

Numerous opportunities for collaborations across the University of Nebraska exist, including with the Nebraska Transportation Center and Midwest Roadside Safety Facility; the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience; Nebraska Innovation Campus; and other state- and federally-funded research centers and programs. Faculty at the University of Nebraska have access to many resources, including the Holland Computing Center, which manages supercomputing facilities.
