Faculty in Environmental and Hydrodynamic Modeling: Assistant Professor

The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the University of Vermont (UVM) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in environmental modeling for Fall 2019. The position will be filled at the Assistant Professor level. Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in engineering or a related field and be able to model fluid flow and mass transport in surface-water systems. Research areas of interest can include but are not limited to process-based modeling of coupled physical, biogeochemical and ecological dynamics in lakes, rivers, hydraulic structures, estuaries and coastal regions. The faculty member will be expected to maintain an active program of externally-funded research and contribute to two separate ABET-accredited undergraduate education programs (Civil Engineering; Environmental Engineering) as well as be active in our M.S. and Ph.D. graduate program. The ability to acquire professional licensure is desired. 

The candidate is also expected to significantly contribute to the Vermont EPSCoR Basin Resilience to Extreme Events (BREE) project by leading the effort to develop a fully coupled physical/biogeochemical model of Lake Champlain. Vermont EPSCoR (www.uvm.edu/EPSCoR) is funded by the National Science Foundation with a $20M interdisciplinary award to study and promote resiliency in the Lake Champlain Basin.  Research will inform public policy and support economic and workforce development. The selected individual will interact substantially with the highly interdisciplinary project team.

The University of Vermont, established in 1791, is a comprehensive research university with a current enrollment of 12,000+ undergraduate, graduate, and medical students. The scientific and academic environments in the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS), and throughout the UVM community are dynamic, highly collaborative, and multi-disciplinary.  Significant campus resources for research collaboration include: Advanced Genome Technologies Core, Complex Systems Center, Larner College of Medicine, Gund Institute for Environment, Vermont Genetics Network, Transportation Research Center, Vermont EPSCoR, Vermont Space Grant Consortium, and the Vermont Advanced Computing Core. 

The University is located in Burlington, Vermont, about 90 miles south of Montreal. Burlington is often rated as the best small city in America for quality of living, and features year-round outdoor recreation and cultural events. Greater Burlington has a population of approximately 150,000 and enjoys a panoramic setting on Lake Champlain, bordered by the Adirondack and Green Mountains.
