ASU Engineering Resilient and Sustainable Environments T/TT Position

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) and the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE) seek applications for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position in the field of engineering resilient and sustainable environments. The applicant will be expected to contribute substantially to the school’s sustainable engineering concentration area, joining a group of faculty members who are leaders in interdisciplinary infrastructure systems, construction, and environmental engineering across ASU and beyond.

Candidates will have a Ph.D. in engineering, or a closely related field, with a research and scholarly focus on engineering for resilient and sustainable environments, such as climate adaptation, cyberphysical system integration and security, resource recovery and circular economy, agile and flexible infrastructure for uncertainty, management of integrated infrastructure-social-ecological systems, or preparing infrastructure for increasingly complex conditions. Candidates whose work involves analyzing interdependencies among myriad networks (e.g., transportation, water, power, communications), identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities through the engineering of smart and connected systems and designing smart and connected communities of the future are also encouraged to apply.

Job responsibilities include developing an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, engaging in entrepreneurial activities, mentoring graduate students and undertaking service activities as appropriate to their rank. Candidates will be expected to support the Sustainable Engineering concentration area curricula, enhance the capacity of the Metis Center for Infrastructure and Sustainable Engineering, and help grow the online MSE degree program in Sustainable Engineering. Professional engineering licensure or the ability to obtain registration in a timely manner is desirable. As part of its New American University initiatives, ASU seeks candidates whose research aligns with addressing critical infrastructure grand challenges, environmental impacts, global health, and sustainable technologies across multiple spatial and temporal scales. In doing so candidates will be supported in infrastructure leadership efforts in interdisciplinary environments.

Successful candidates will support the mission of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and are expected to participate in interdisciplinary research and teaching endeavors both within and beyond the Fulton Schools. Although the tenure home may be in any of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE) is currently the most involved in the interest areas of the search. The School offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Civil, Environmental, Sustainable, and Construction Engineering, and in Construction Management and Technology.  SSEBE has 60 faculty members, 1450 undergraduate and 800 graduate students, and generates annual research expenditures of $24 million per year.

This search is part of ASU’s engagement with the Arizona’s New Economy Initiative (NEI), a bold effort to ensure that Arizona leads the new economy that will rely on engineering, computing, and technology to drive sustainable growth, resilience, and opportunities for all. NEI investments in the Fulton Schools of Engineering will grow our world class faculty to accelerate research outcomes and to broaden student access to our programs; will establish Science and Technology Centers to foster the growth of new economy industries; and will expand experiential learning and workforce training opportunities.

Appointment will be at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor rank commensurate with the candidate’s experience and accomplishments. The anticipated start date is August 2023, but accommodations can be made for the selected candidate.
