The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering (CCEE) at The University of Alabama (UA) invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in the area of hydrology and water resources engineering.

Water represents one of four of UA’s focal research areas and UA is leading many efforts to enhance hydro-systems research and water management through the creation of new centers. In particular, the Center for Complex Hydrosystems Research (CCHR) supports the campus in efforts to promote basic and applied research and knowledge gains in areas of food-energy-water nexus, harnessing data revolution, remote sensing, paleohydrology, cyberinfrastructure, hydro-informatics and disaster management. The Alabama Water Institute (AWI) is an organization at UA for outreach and dissemination of water related research and it seeks innovative solutions for water management and partners with agencies including the NOAA National Water Center located on UA’s campus.

Candidates are expected to significantly contribute to and enhance the water research enterprise at UA through the CCHR and AWI, support UA’s educational mission at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and actively participate in appropriate professional outreach and service activities. Candidates will be considered for appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor commensurate with experience and qualifications. Possible areas of expertise include but are not limited to surface hydrology; extremes; climate change; remote sensing; computational hydrology; hydrosystems management; decision making under uncertainty and data analytics.

The successful candidates must demonstrate the potential to build a robust research program through individual initiative and ability to collaborate effectively (the ability to collaborate internationally is particularly attractive). Additionally, the successful candidate will also need to indicate ideas and willingness related to supporting and expanding the undergraduate and, especially, graduate educational missions of the department, and appropriate professional service, outreach, and leadership efforts.

The Carnegie Foundation has recognized UA with its Very High Research Activity status (formerly known as R1 status). UA currently enrolls over 38,000 students and employs over 2,000 full and part-time faculty members in thirteen colleges and schools. The College of Engineering is comprised of seven academic departments with over 6,000 students, and the College will be home to more than 150 tenure/tenure-track faculty following the current search. The College occupies well over a half million square feet of state of the art research and instructional facilities, including the $300 million Shelby Engineering and Science Quadrangle completed in 2014 and the newly reopened $22 million renovated H.M. Comer.

Applicants must have earned a doctorate (Ph.D.) in civil engineering or a closely related field.

Applicants should apply online at http://facultyjobs.ua.edu, requisition 0812305.
Additional Position Information:

Applications will be accepted and reviewed continuously until the position is filled with a possible start date as early as January 2020.
