The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Louisiana State University invites applications for a Coastal Engineering faculty position at the full professor level with a particular emphasis on high performance computing of coastal hydro-science and –engineering systems (e.g., rainfall, sediment transport, waves, etc.) as well as related field.
The successful candidate will be expected to enhance LSU CEE and CCT’s strong funding portfolio in Coastal and Water Resources Engineering, teach relevant courses, mentor graduate students and contribute to LSU’s service mission. In addition to strong evidence of intellectual contributions to a coastal or water-related field, we seek candidates that have demonstrated leadership and an ability to develop and implement real world solutions to coastal and water resources problems using strong networking and communication skills.

Preferred Qualifications: 
Preference will be given to candidates who have developed a sustainable research program focusing on one or more areas. This hire will be the third in a series of Coastal Engineering hires within the CEE department and will hold a joint appointment in CEE (2/3) and CCT (1/3). While applicants from all subdisciplines of coastal engineering are encouraged to apply, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in high performance computing and numerical modeling of coastal systems, with an emphasis on rainfall, sediment transport and wave modeling, etc.
