Assistant/Associate/Full Professor - Smart Civil and Environmental Engineering Systems


Requisition Number: FTFR001008


Division/College: College of Engineering


Location: Boston Main Campus


Full-time/Part-time: Full Time




As part of a strategic initiative in the area of Urban Engineering, Northeastern University seeks faculty candidates for tenured or tenure-track appointments at the assistant, associate, or full professor level in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering across the broad area of Smart Civil and Environmental Engineering Systems. Interested candidates may be considered for joint appointments commensurate with their areas of expertise. The department is in the midst of a significant, multi-year expansion in size and scope, including faculty, facilities, and programs within several disciplines and across disciplinary boundaries.


Areas of specific interest within Smart Civil and Environmental Engineering Systems include enabling adoption of autonomous systems, intelligent controls, urban informatics, resilient infrastructure, and problem-centric applications of innovative technologies (e.g., robotics for disaster relief, construction, or infrastructure management). Research applications can be in any domain of civil and environmental engineering, however the candidates should have demonstrated expertise in national and societal priority areas that relate to the highly interdisciplinary 21st century urban engineering and sustainability challenges. Applicants building upon broad disciplinary backgrounds, for example in other engineering fields, computational sciences, earth sciences, or environmental health, are particularly encouraged to apply.


Candidates should be committed to fostering diverse and inclusive environments as well as to promoting experiential learning, which are central to a Northeastern University education.


For further information see:




A Doctorate degree in civil engineering or a related field is required by the start date as well as excellence in research, teaching, and service. Senior-level candidates should have a demonstrated record of developing transformative solutions to global challenges, sustaining a research program with an emphasis on interdisciplinary and translational research, teaching both undergraduate and graduate classes, and being an active, recognized leader nationally and internationally in the discipline.
