Open Rank Faculty Positions in Environmental and Water Engineering
The Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder is seeking applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the broad areas of water sustainability and environmental engineering. We are recruiting applicants who can contribute to themes including water reuse, resource recovery, energy and climate interactions with water supply and treatment, water monitoring and management in low income and resource limited settings, optimal water management, and resilience. Of particular interest is the application of a sustainable systems framework to these and related themes. This position is part of the long-term growth plans of the College of Engineering and Applied Science and is open to applicants at the assistant, associate, and full professor ranks.
The Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering (CEAE) has 51 faculty with strong undergraduate and graduate programs in environmental engineering, hydrology, water resources and environmental fluid mechanics and interdisciplinary programs in global and systems engineering. We offer accredited BS, MS and PhD degrees in both environmental and civil engineering and professional master’s degrees in Water Engineering and Management, Engineering for Developing Communities, and Water Reuse. For more information on CEAE, environmental engineering, hydrology, water resources and environmental fluid mechanics, and professional masters programs, see, respectively:
Additionally, the CEAE Department is home to four centers with strong environmental and water research components: the Center for Advanced Decision Support in Water and Environmental Systems (CADSWES), the Mortenson Center in Global Engineering, the Center for Environmental Mass Spectrometry, and the Water-Energy Nexus Interdisciplinary Research Theme initiative.

A successful candidate will be expected to engage in undergraduate and graduate teaching, contribute professional service, and develop a vigorous, externally-funded research program in their technical areas while fostering collaboration with other faculty. Candidates whose expertise cuts across engineering disciplines are especially encouraged to apply. In their application candidates should describe their interests in teaching, graduate student researcher training, and their plans to develop a recognized research program based on scholarly work in their field.
The successful candidate would complement our existing strengths in water and air quality, water, wastewater and reuse treatment process technology, environmental sustainability, remediation, aquatic ecology, hydroclimatology, water resources management, groundwater flow and contaminant transport, and modeling physical and ecosystem interactions. The successful candidate will be expected to participate in the interdisciplinary program in environmental engineering (EVEN), which is one of the largest the US with 19 faculty rostered in CEAE and Mechanical Engineering departments doing research in water and air quality, water, wastewater and reuse treatment process technology, environmental sustainability, remediation, and aquatic ecology.
