Tenure-track Faculty (River-Coastal Science and Engineering)

Tulane University

New Orleans, LA, US

Description

Tulane University’s Department of River-Coastal Science and Engineering (RCSE) invites applications to fill one or more tenure-track, full-time positions for Fall 2020.  Positions are targeted at the Assistant Professor level but applicants from more senior (tenured) ranks will be considered.  This is part of the next phase of growth in a highly innovative department at Tulane formed in 2017 that will concentrate on water nexus issues in the river-delta-coastal continuum, and will be truly transdisciplinary, combining elements of civil and environmental engineering, hydrology, geosciences, and ecological sciences.  The goal will be to conduct interdisciplinary research and develop innovative approaches to educate the next generation to tackle complex problems associated with a changing global climate and human interactions in the river-coastal realm.  More information about RCSE and our growth to date can be found at https://sse.tulane.edu/river/about/mission.

Qualifications

RCSE is seeking applications from candidates with demonstrated experience in convergence research in water science and engineering.  Fields of interest include, but are not limited to (1) river-coastal ecohydrology, (2) hydraulic and hydrological engineering, (3) hydroclimatology, (4) hydroinformatics and big data analytics, (5) river mechanics, (6) coastal geomorphology, (7) green infrastructure/watershed management and engineering, and (8) soft-soil geotechnical engineering.  A doctoral degree in engineering or a relevant science is required, and post-doctoral experience is preferred.  Applicants will be expected to develop an innovative research program, teach courses in their area of specialization, and conduct service toward the mission of the department and university.  In addition, successful applicants will become part of a faculty team that will be designing and implementing innovative undergraduate and graduate degree programs and developing water-related research initiatives across Tulane’s schools.

Application Instructions

Review of applications will begin on February 14, 2020 and will continue until the position(s) are filled.
