Job Description: 

The Environmental Engineering (EVEN) Program at the University of Colorado Boulder is currently seeking applications for two (2) tenure track faculty positions in the area of Water Sustainability. These positions are part of the long-term growth plans for the program. The positions are open at all levels, with special consideration given to applicants at the Assistant Professor rank. Although other topics related to the theme will be considered, ideally candidates should have teaching and research interests in one or more of the following areas: water reuse (e.g., membrane processes, engineered water infiltration systems), impaired water quality (e.g., organic and inorganic contaminants, microbial pathogens, toxicology), and systems analysis in the water- energy nexus (e.g., interactions between sectors, decentralization of water infrastructure, resource recovery, sustainability analysis). Candidates with interests in other topics related to the theme will also be considered.

The positions will be rostered in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering (CEAE). Candidates must have an earned Ph.D. or equivalent degree in environmental engineering or a related field. Professional registration or an ability to become a registered professional engineer is desirable, but not required. The EVEN Program is one of the largest in the nation, with 19 full-time program faculty, over 220 undergraduate students, and over 70 graduate students. For information about the EVEN Program, please visit: http://www.colorado.edu/even/. For more information about the CEAE Department, please visit: http://www.colorado.edu/ceae/.

Successful candidates will be expected to engage in undergraduate and graduate teaching, contribute professional service, and develop vigorous, externally-funded research programs in their technical areas while fostering collaboration with other faculty. Candidates whose expertise

cuts across engineering disciplines are especially encouraged to apply. Candidates should describe their interests in teaching and graduate student researcher training, and their plans to develop a recognized research program based on scholarly work in their field.

Inclusiveness and diversity are valued characteristics of the faculty and students in the EVEN program, as well as primary objectives of the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the University of Colorado Boulder campus.
