Assistant Professor, Tenure Track

We are no longer accepting applications for this recruitment


The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Irvine invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Intelligent Infrastructure at the Assistant Professor level. The Department is open to applicants with a focus in any area of civil infrastructure (e.g., water, transportation, structures), but is particularly interested in applicants whose work involves novel sensing, monitoring and control systems and the utilization of these systems for infrastructure management.

A prominent goal of the strategic growth of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Irvine is to build a bridge over the research and educational gaps between our understanding of individual infrastructure systems (water, sewer, energy, transportation, buildings and other structures) and that of networks of integrated urban infrastructure systems including environmental, technological, behavioral and policy dimensions which involve a far higher degree of complexity. The rapid evolution of “smart cities” implies increasingly monitored, networked and automated urban infrastructure that must be responsive to societal and environmental needs but in fact is not well understood and/or predictable.

Candidates should possess a Ph.D. degree in civil engineering, environmental engineering, or closely related fields at the time of appointment, and be qualified to teach undergraduate and graduate engineering courses. Candidates must have a superior record of scholarship and demonstrate a strong potential to develop an externally funded research group. To promote interdisciplinary research, the Department seeks candidates capable of, and experienced with, interdisciplinary collaboration in fields such as physical, social, and information sciences and other engineering disciplines. Exceptionally promising candidates will be considered for a Samueli Faculty Career Development Professorship.
