Assistant or Associate Professor - Coastal Hydraulics and Resilience - Cal Poly SLO

Opportunity Type: Job

The Civil and Environmental Engineering (CE/ENVE) Department at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo invites applications for a full-time, academic year, tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in Water Resources Engineering with an emphasis in Coastal Hydraulics. The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate how their interdisciplinary research enhances the resilience of coastal communities and their infrastructure to natural disasters and the threat of climate change. We are especially seeking applicants whose specialty areas include: evaluation of the impacts, risks and resilience of coastal hazards through computational modeling, experiment and/or field research; and/or analysis and development of sustainable and resilient solutions that better protect coastal communities and environments. The successful candidate has an excellent opportunity to succeed given Cal Poly's proximity to the coastline, potential for synergistic and interdisciplinary collaboration with faculty in the Center for Coastal Marine Sciences, access to Cal Poly's Research Pier, proximity to Diablo Canyon (a nuclear power plant slated to close in 2025), and local interest in marine renewable energy. Rank and salary are commensurate with qualifications and experience. The anticipated start date is September 12, 2019.
