Job Posting Title:Professor - Coastal Engineering (Tenured)

Position Type:Faculty

Department:LSUAM Engineering - School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (George Z Voyiadjis (00009256))

Work Location:LSU - Baton Rouge

Pay Grade:Academic

The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Louisiana State University invites applications for a Coastal Engineering faculty position at the full professor level with a particular emphasis on high performance computing of coastal hydro-science and -engineering systems (e.g., rainfall, sediment transport, waves, etc.) as well as related field. Coastal Engineering is a major strategic initiative at Louisiana State University and an area of focus within the College of Engineering, the Department, and the Center for Computation & Technology (CCT). LSU is located adjacent to one of the largest "natural" laboratories in the world and is a leader in addressing some of the largest coastal, environmental, and restoration public works projects in our nation's history. This setting provides a unique opportunity to conduct research in a setting that has regional, federal, and international relevance.

LSU is designated as the Flagship University in the state of Louisiana and is committed to the coast (www.lsu.edu/coast/). LSU has a total enrollment of more than 30,000 students, and is the only public university in the state to be designated a Carnegie Research I University. The LSU College of Engineering has experienced significant enrollment increases in recent years and has completed a $110 million facilities renovation in the Summer of 2017. LSU is located in Baton Rouge which has a metropolitan-area population of more than 800,000. The university's location, within one of the world's largest petrochemical corridors and in close proximity to the Mississippi River and its dynamic delta, provides significant opportunities for infrastructural, coastal and environmental engineering research. Current strengths of the department include structures/infrastructures, mechanics of materials, coastal engineering, geotechnical engineering, traffic/transportation engineering, environmental engineering, and groundwater hydrology and hydraulics. Additional information about the department can be found at: http://www.cee.lsu.edu. Questions about the hiring process can be directed at the search committee chair, Prof. Frank Tsai (ftsai@lsu.edu).

The successful candidate will be expected to enhance LSU CEE and CCT's strong funding portfolio in Coastal and Water Resources Engineering, teach relevant courses, mentor graduate students and contribute to LSU's service mission. In addition to strong evidence of intellectual contributions to a coastal or water-related field, we seek candidates that have demonstrated leadership and an ability to develop and implement real world solutions to coastal and water resources problems using strong networking and communication skills.

Required Qualifications: PhD in Civil or Coastal Engineering or related field. Rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. An offer of employment is contingent on a satisfactory pre-employment background check. Responsibilities include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses; developing and sustaining an independent, extramurally sponsored, research program; and providing service to the undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the College of Engineering, and LSU.

Preferred Qualifications: Preference will be given to candidates who have developed a sustainable research program focusing on one or more areas. This hire will be the third in a series of Coastal Engineering hires within the CEE department and will hold a joint appointment in CEE (2/3) and CCT (1/3). While applicants from all sub-disciplines of coastal engineering are encouraged to apply, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in high performance computing and numerical modeling of coastal systems, with an emphasis on rainfall, sediment transport and wave modeling, etc.

Additional Job Description:

Special Instructions:The application package should be submitted online as a single PDF file with the application materials organized as follows: (a) cover letter; (b) complete curriculum vitae; (c) statement on research interests and directions; (d) statement on teaching interests and philosophy; and (e) names and contact details of at least three references.

A copy of your transcript(s) may be attached to your application (if available). However, original transcripts are required prior to hire.

Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.
