Faculty Position in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering

Tufts University

Medford, MA, United States 🇺🇸

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Tufts University
seeks candidates for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of
Environmental and Water Resources Engineering at the level of Assistant
Professor. Exceptional candidates may also be considered for appointment at
the rank of Associate Professor depending on experience and accomplishments.
Candidates must possess a doctorate degree in hydrology, environmental
engineering, water resources engineering, engineering systems, or a related
interdisciplinary field.

We seek applicants with expertise in the area of hydrology and water
resources, whose research interests relate to complex water challenges facing
society – including but not limited to food-energy- water nexus, issues of
scales and uncertainties, impacts of changing climate, and issues related to
water resources access, allocation and management. Preference will be given
to candidates with a proven record of scholarship and a focus on
theory-practice synthesis. Principal responsibilities include the
establishment of an externally-funded research program, graduate and
undergraduate instruction and mentorship, and University and professional
service. The successful candidate will join our Environmental and Water
Resources Engineering program with strengths in hydrology, groundwater
remediation, water quality modeling, water diplomacy, and contaminant fate
and transport. The position offers considerable opportunity for collaboration
in several interdisciplinary programs and organizations including Water:
Systems, Science, and Society, Water Diplomacy, Tufts Institute of the
Environment, and the Stockholm Environment Institute U.S. Office.

The Tufts School of Engineering (SOE) distinguishes itself by the
interdisciplinary focus and integrative nature of its engineering education
and research programs, within the intellectually rich environment of both a
“Research 1” university and a top-ranked undergraduate institution. The
past ten years have been a period of extraordinary growth for SOE at Tufts,
with recruitment of over half of its current tenured and tenure-track faculty
members and a more than three-fold increase in research productivity. Tufts
offers the best of a liberal arts college atmosphere, coupled with the
intellectual and technological resources of a major research university. Home
to seven graduate and professional schools across three campuses, Tufts
University prides itself on its culture of cross-school partnerships. Located
on Tufts’ Medford/Somerville campus, only six miles from historic downtown
Boston, SOE faculty members have extensive opportunities for academic and
industrial collaboration, as well as participation in the rich intellectual
life of the region.
