  • Tenure-Track Full Professor of Environmental Engineering and State Director of EPSCoR (Position #00023331) – We seek highly qualified applicants for a tenured full professor in environmental engineering, who will also serve as the State Director of Vermont’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) leading expansion of UVM’s research portfolio at the nexus of human and natural systems, as part of the position. EPSCoR establishes partnerships with government, higher education and industry and is designed to make lasting improvements in the state’s research infrastructure, capacity, and national competitiveness. The EPSCoR State Director will work closely with the UVM Vice President for Research to integrate existing multi-agency EPSCoR initiatives and expand participation across campus. Prior experience with EPSCoR programs is desirable. The CEE department emphasizes interdisciplinary research with collaborators in social science, policy, and public health. Campus-wide collaborative opportunities include: Gund Institute for Environment, Lake Champlain Sea Grant, Complex Systems Center, Transportation Research Center, UVM Extension, Advanced Genome Technologies Core, Larner College of Medicine, Vermont Biomedical Research Network, Vermont Space Grant Consortium, Vermont Advanced Computing Core, Mass Spectrometry Core Laboratory, and the Microscopy Imaging Center. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in environmental engineering or a related field, an exceptional portfolio of cutting-edge research and teaching, and a prolific record of securing and managing research funding, particularly from federal agencies such as NSF, EPA and DOE. The candidate’s research area should support existing applied and fundamental CEE faculty research on biological, chemical, or physical processes in the broad area of water systems and sustainability in natural and engineered environments.
  • Tenure-Track Assistant or Associate Professor in Environmental Engineering (Position #006305) – We seek candidates that complement existing research conducted within the department and across the university on physical, chemical, and biological processes for water and wastewater treatment and recovery of beneficial products from wastes, including those who combine experimental research with computational sciences. Priority will be given to individuals who can connect contemporary water and wastewater issues to regional, national, and global environmental and public health outcomes. The candidate will be expected to maintain an active program of externally-funded research and contribute to two separate ABET-accredited undergraduate education programs (Civil Engineering; Environmental Engineering) as well as teach CEE undergraduate and M.S. and Ph.D. graduate courses in their area of expertise.
  • Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Engineering Mechanics and Materials (Position #004608) – We seek applicants who work at the frontier of their field towards enhancing the sustainability of the built and natural environments. We welcome applicants from all areas of engineering mechanics and materials that could complement existing research expertise within the department and the university. Topics of particular interest include but are not limited to computational solid mechanics, snow/ice mechanics, smart materials, mechanics of materials to support clean energy production and environmental remediation, and novel applications of machine learning in computational mechanics. Applicants should have an earned Ph.D. in civil engineering or a related field, have the ability to pursue an independent program of research and collaborate across disciplinary boundaries, and a strong commitment to both graduate and undergraduate mentoring including teaching courses in mechanics, materials and structural engineering.
