Evans Family Professorship in Arctic Engineering
The Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth seeks an outstanding candidate to be the inaugural holder of the Evans Family Professorship, which will be filled at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level. The Thayer School of Engineering is undertaking a significant expansion of faculty and programs: this position is the first of three new hires at Dartmouth in an interdisciplinary cluster focused on “Ice, Climate, and Energy” The successful candidate, who will have a doctorate in engineering or a related field, will contribute to Dartmouth’s well-established research effort in cold regions science and engineering by leading a strong externally-funded research program in engineering related to the Arctic, including but not limited to: the behavior of ice, snow and permafrost, and developing Arctic-related technologies. The successful candidate will also be a gifted teacher with motivation and expertise that complements the Thayer School’s interdisciplinary approach to engineering education. Facilities include Thayer School’s long-established Ice Research Laboratory, and there is strong potential for collaborations with Dartmouth’s Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society, Dartmouth’s Institute for Arctic Studies, and with the nearby U.S. Army’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory. Dartmouth is part of the University of the Arctic.
