Climate change is considered to be one of the main challenges facing humankind in the 21st century, with serious and global consequences for the environment, human health, and the economy.
Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics
The Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics invites applications for TWO tenure-track faculty positions to support a Department initiative in Sustainable Engineering. Qualified individuals are sought with expertise in either:
(1) Computational mechanics - with an emphasis on large-scale computing applied to multi-scale, multi-phase modeling of materials (from nano- to macro-scale), and/or mechanics and materials challenges in energy and/or the environment.
(2) Experimental mechanics - with emphasis on mechanics and materials challenges in energy and/or the environment, composites and other complex multi-scale, multi-phase materials.
