Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering - Open Rank Faculty Positions The Grainger College of Engineering University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites applications for one full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty position. Senior and mid-career faculty are encouraged to apply, but all qualified candidates will be considered. The Department seeks to expand its expertise in emerging interdisciplinary areas in Synthetic Biology for Environmental Solutions that are critical in addressing global challenges through innovative education and research. It includes creation of innovative solutions for bio energy, resource recovery, and emerging public health concerns by leveraging synthetic or molecular biology tools, novel biological systems (genetic circuits, enzymes, genetically engineered microbes), fundamental biological and chemical concepts, artificial intelligence, and big data science, as well as collaborations in Computer Science, Public Health, Plant Biology, or related fields.
The University of Illinois is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer. Minorities, women, veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply. For more information, visit go.illinois.edu/EEO. To learn more about the University commitment to diversity, please visit: engineering.illinois.edu/about/diversity.html.
The successful candidate is expected to develop and maintain an internationally recognized research program, to contribute fully to teaching of undergraduate and graduate courses, and to provide service to the profession and University. Ideal candidates include those who demonstrate evidence of a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion through research, teaching, and/or service endeavors. Successful candidates are also expected to develop interactions with faculty across the Department, College and campus. Opportunities exist to participate in related CEE and campus-wide communities, such as the Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory, Prairie Research Institute, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, the Institute of Genomic Biology, the Illinois State Geological Survey, as well as nine other Engineering Departments and the new College of Medicine. Applicants must hold an earned doctorate in an appropriate field. Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications.
Qualified senior candidates may also be considered for tenured Associate Professor and Full Professor positions as part of the Grainger Engineering Breakthroughs Initiative. Over the next few years, more than 35 new endowed professorships and chairs will be established in areas of strategic interest to The Grainger College of Engineering. Such areas include, but are not limited to, bioengineering, big data, quantum information, robotics and machine learning. More information about the Grainger Initiative can be found at grainger.illinois.edu/research/grainger-breakthroughs.
