Faculty position in water resources engineering/coastal and ocean engineering

Oregon State University

Corvallis, OR, United States 🇺🇸

The School of Civil and Construction Engineering (CCE) at Oregon State
University, Corvallis, Oregon, invites applications for a full-time, 9-month,
tenure-track faculty position to begin in Fall 2017. The position is expected
to be filled at the Assistant Professor level; however, outstanding
candidates will also be considered at the Associate or Full Professor level.

The successful candidate will demonstrate the potential to teach and conduct
fundamental and/or applied research in the areas of water resources
engineering and/or coastal and ocean engineering. The candidate will be
expected to teach undergraduate fluids/water courses, to develop graduate
courses in their specialty area, and to build and sustain an independent,
internationally-recognized research program. The College of Engineering is
committed to building a community of faculty, students, and staff that is
increasingly more inclusive, collaborative, diverse, and centered on student
success. As such, we seek applicants who will broaden our capacity to advance
student success across individual identities, racial/ethnic categories, and
socioeconomic backgrounds.

Existing strengths at OSU in the areas of interest include: the Hinsdale Wave
Research Laboratory, the OSU-Benton County Green Stormwater Infrastructure
Research Facility, Multipurpose River Hydraulics Research Facility, the
Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center, the Institute of Water and
Watersheds, the Hatfield Marine Science Center, and the campus-wide Water
Resources Graduate Program. We seek a candidate that can leverage some of
these strengths as well as several newly launched programs in the College of
Engineering, including the Cascadia Lifelines Program, signature initiatives
on Resilient Infrastructure and Clean Water, and the university-level Marine
Studies Initiative. The successful candidate would develop a research program
that limits coastal vulnerabilities to climate change and other natural
hazards (e.g. storm waves/surge, tsunamis, coastal flooding), or seeks to
improve the resilience of water infrastructure for rural, urban, or coastal
communities, or considers the development and environmental effects of marine
structures and/or renewables.

Required Qualifications: This position requires a PhD, by the date of
employment, in Civil Engineering or a closely-related field. Also required:

potential to develop an independent research program, and the life
experience, education, or training that would broaden capacity to build a
more inclusive, collaborative, and diverse community, centered on student

Preferred Qualifications: Research and teaching experience in the area of
water resources engineering and/or coastal and ocean engineering.
Demonstrated ability to develop an externally-funded research program. For
hire at the Associate and Full Professor level, it is preferred that the
