TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING FACULTY POSITION

The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of New Mexico is soliciting applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Transportation Engineering to begin August 2018.

The appointment will be filled at the probationary level and will lead to a tenure decision. Areas of research interest include, but are not limited to, emerging challenges in smart cities, including autonomous and connected vehicles.

The Civil Engineering department currently has 16 tenure-track faculty members and annual research expenditures of about $5.3M, including research performed by CE faculty and students in centers associated with the Department. The department research centers include both a regional and a tier-one University Transportation Center (UTC), and is located in the Centennial Engineering Center, a state-of-the-art research and teaching building containing over 6,000 sq. ft. of laboratories. The department interacts extensively with the New Mexico Department of Transportation and Sandia National Laboratories and Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. For additional information on the Department of Civil Engineering, please visit our website http://www.unm.edu/~civil.

UNM is located in Albuquerque, the largest city in New Mexico.

The city has a rich culture and a location, offering unparalleled opportunities for outdoor adventure. The University is located within one hour of Santa Fe, and within minutes of the Sandia and Manzano Mountains, which offer great opportunities for hiking, biking, rock climbing and skiing.

UNM is a recipient of an ADVANCE Institutional Transformation grant from the NSF to promote and advance women and minority faculty in STEM fields, and SOE is partnering with the ADVANCE
