Environmental Engineering: Modeling, Simulation, and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering for Environmental Applications

Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Job Type: 
Job Rank: 
Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor
Job Institution: 
Washington University in St. Louis
Job Description: 

The School of Engineering & Applied Science (engineering.wustl.edu) at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications and nominations for tenured or tenure-track faculty positions in the Department of Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering (www.eece.wustl.edu).  Joint appointments with other departments are also possible for suitably qualified candidates.  Positions are available at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor Level.

The faculty search is focused on modeling, simulation, and data-enabled science and engineering applications in environmental science and technology.  The department has existing strengths in the chemistry of engineered aquatic systems and aerosol science and technology and that can benefit new faculty with computationally-focused research programs regarding natural and engineered atmospheric, aerosol, and aquatic systems.  Of interest are multiscale modeling approaches and novel computational tools such as machine learning and big data analysis to study the behavior of complex environmental systems. The positions are aligned with the School’s strategic plan (engineering.wustl.edu/our-school/strategicplan/) as part of a research focus on Smart Environmental Systems, one of seven research areas in the plan, and they are allied with strategic research efforts in Data Sciences for Humanity and Clean Energy Systems.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in environmental engineering, chemical engineering, or a related discipline.  New faculty are expected to build and maintain strong externally-supported research programs and teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  There are opportunities for collaborations with other researchers in the School of Engineering and throughout the university. We anticipate that the career development of new hires will benefit from participation in school-wide and university-wide initiatives on energy and the environment that include the Center for Aerosol Science and Engineering (aerosols.wustl.edu), Consortium for Clean Coal Utilization (cccu.wustl.edu), the International Center for Energy, Environment and Sustainability (incees.wustl.edu/), the McDonnell Academy Global Energy and Environment Partnership (mageep.wustl.edu), and the Institute of Materials Science and Engineering (imse.wustl.edu).

Applicants should submit a cover letter articulating their interest in this opportunity, their curriculum vitae, a statement of research plans and teaching interests and philosophy (not to exceed 5 pages total) to http://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/10168. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted through the online system.  Questions regarding the process should be directed to the search committee chair Dr. Daniel Giammar (giammar@wustl.edu). Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled, but priority will be given to those received by December 1, 2017.
