Job Description: 

The New Jersey Institute of Technology has embarked on an ambitious strategic growth plan: 2020 Vision with a core research thrust in the life sciences and engineering. NJIT has hired over 50 faculty in the past three years and plans to add more than 100 faculty by 2020. Under the Vision 2020, the John A. Reif, Jr. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) is seeking to recruit a tenure-track Assistant/Associate Professor in the general area of Environmental Engineering to start in August 2017.

To complement existing strengths in the department, the Department is interested in applicants with research interests in the areas of microbial processes and hydraulics and hydrology. But outstanding candidates in other areas of environmental engineering would be considered.  Ideal candidates in the microbial process area would have a thrust in sequencing and genomics and/or in the evaluation of the microbial community behavior due to contamination.  Ideal candidates in the hydraulics and hydrology would have expertise in modeling contaminant transport and remediation in various settings including coastal systems.

Ideal candidates would have a Ph.D. degree in environmental engineering or a related field. They should be able to collaborate with various faculty in the CEE Department and in NJIT, and be able to teach a broad range of undergraduate courses in Environmental Engineering, and to develop and teach graduate courses in their general area of expertise.  Preference will be given to candidates with a proven record of outstanding research accomplishment, and to candidates who are able to obtain a professional licensure in the State of New Jersey.  

CEE is a research active department with 25 tenured/tenure-track faculty. Research areas include environmental remediation, energy harvesting, environmental hydraulics, and intelligent transportation systems. Funding has come from NSF, EPA, DOI, Industry and private foundations, among others. The Department has approximately 50 PhD candidates, and 260 MS students.  The undergraduate program serves about 600 students and is ABET accredited.

Rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.  Applications must be posted at https://njit.jobs and must include a curriculum vitae, cover letter and list of 5 professional references.  Questions may be directed to the department Search Committee Chair, Professor Michel Boufadel boufadel@njit.edu.  NJIT is dedicated to recruiting and retaining women and underrepresented minority candidates to help the university achieve its mission of education, research, economic development, and service.
