Environmental Engineering — Modeling, Simulation and Data-Enabled Applications in Environmental Science and Technology

The School of Engineering & Applied Science 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. Joint appointments with other departments are also possible for suitably qualified candidates. Positions are available at the assistant, associate, or full professor levels.

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 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 PhD 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, Consortium for Clean Coal Utilization, the International Center for Energy, Environment & Sustainability, the McDonnell Academy Global Energy and Environment Partnership, and the Institute of Materials Science and Engineering.

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 Academic Jobs Online. 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 Daniel Giammar. 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.
