The University of New Brunswick's Department of Civil Engineering, in the Faculty of Engineering, invites applications for a tenure-track position in Structural Engineering at the rank of Assistant Professor. This position has an anticipated start date of September 1, 2022, or soon thereafter as may be negotiated with the successful applicant. Review of applications will commence by July 15 and will continue until the position is filled.
This is an opportunity for an individual to join a civil engineering department in a period of growth while placing increased emphasis on the profession's impacts on society through collaborative research and education offerings and contribute to research and teaching in structural engineering. Applicants will be considered from a broad range of research specialties and approaches (e.g., experimental, analytical, theoretical). Experience in the practice of engineering design is also desirable, and the potential to collaborate with and complement other researchers in the Department or at the University will be considered an asset.
The successful applicant will be required to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the field of structural engineering with some emphasis on structural steel design and practice, and to establish and maintain an innovative, externally funded, research program and contribute to the training of highly qualified professions. Current infrastructure to support this position includes several laboratory facilities and technical support for experimental research in structural engineering related areas.
Applicants are expected to have a PhD in Civil Engineering or a closely related field with evidence of, or demonstrated potential for, excellence in research and teaching and a commitment to an inclusive learning and working environment. Applicants must be eligible and willing to register as a Professional Engineer in the Province of New Brunswick.
The Department of Civil Engineering has faculty members with research expertise in all major subdisciplines including construction, environmental, geotechnical, hydrotechnical, materials, structural, and transportation. The Department of Civil Engineering has many well-established working and research partnerships with public and private organizations regionally, nationally, and internationally, that provide many opportunities for collaboration. The Department hosts several specialty research chairs and research groups. Further information about the Department is available at: https://www.unb.ca/fredericton/engineering/depts/civil/index.html.
The University of New Brunswick has been nurturing discovery and innovation for over 200 years. The Fredericton campus, in the capital city of New Brunswick, delivered the first lecture in civil engineering in Canada in 1854. The Department of Civil Engineering offers 4-year bachelor's degrees in civil engineering and geological engineering, and research-based graduate degrees programs (MEng, MScE, PhD) in Civil Engineering. The combined undergraduate and graduate student enrolment is typically 350 to 400.
Applications should be emailed to the attention of Dr. Jeff H. Rankin, Chair of the Department of Civil Engineering, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a cover letter, a detailed curriculum vitae, statements of both research and teaching interests (including aspects of EDI in each), and three academic references with their contact information. Applicants should indicate current citizenship status.
We recognize that career paths are not always linear, particularly for individuals from marginalized groups, and we encourage applicants to explain the impact any career interruptions may have had on their research history.
