Applications are invited for a tenure-track Assistant/Associate Professor position in the field of Resilient Infrastructure at The Ohio State University. The primary appointment is in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering (CEGE) with a joint appointment in the Department of Integrated Systems Engineering (ISE) in the College of Engineering at OSU.  Candidates whose research specializes in areas pertaining to resilience of (aging) structures and infrastructure systems including: physically-based and data driven approaches to modeling and resilience assessment, characterization and modeling of interdependencies, hazard lifecycle analysis, ongoing off-line or real-time monitoring, resilience enhancement strategies, or other relevant topics are encouraged to apply.                                        

Specific research areas of interest include (but are not limited to): physically-based and data driven approaches to modeling and resilience assessment, characterization and modeling interdependencies, lifecycle analysis, ongoing off-line or real-time monitoring, and resilience enhancement of (aging) structures and infrastructure systems. All infrastructure types are of interest, particularly water and wastewater, energy, and transportation systems and their components. The CEGE and ISE departments, college, and university are making significant investments in sustainability, energy, climate and the environment, and materials in support of establishing OSU as a global leader at the nexus of these areas. This position is partially funded by Ohio State’s Discovery Themes, a significant faculty hiring investment in key thematic areas in which the university can build on its culture of academic collaboration to make a global impact. Thus, a strong potential to collaborate within the departments and across the university is desirable.  The successful candidate is expected to develop a nationally-recognized, externally funded research program; publish in high quality journals; participate in collaborative teams and interdisciplinary research; contribute effective instruction at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the host departments; supervise and mentor graduate students; and provide professional and university service.

Required QualificationsAn earned doctoral degree (or equivalent) in civil engineering, industrial engineering or closely related disciplines prior to the August 2018 start date, and at least one engineering degree preferably in civil or environmental engineering at either the baccalaureate or post-baccalaureate level are required. 

Preferred / Desired Qualifications: demonstrated experience collaborating on multidisciplinary initiatives; and experience working with diverse populations; strongly desired qualifications include an established record of research commensurate with prior training and specialization in areas pertaining to resilience of (aging) structures and infrastructure systems including: physically based and data driven approaches to modeling and resilience assessment, characterization and modeling of interdependencies, hazard life-cycle analysis, ongoing off-line or real-time monitoring, resilience enhancement strategies, or other relevant topics; evidence of potential for developing a nationally-recognized research program; demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching in the host departments, and an ability to communicate effectively with faculty and students in large and small audiences.

To apply: Please submit your application in single book-marked PDF file via Academic Jobs Online that contains, in this order, (i) a cover letter; (ii) CV; (iii) a statement of future research; (iv) a statement of relationship between proposed research and Sustainable and Resilient Economy Discovery Theme; (v) a statement of current interests or activities, and/or future goals that promote a climate that values diversity and inclusion (vi) a statement of teaching; (vii) a list of three references, including names, affiliations and full contact information with email; and (viii) up to three research papers, published, under review, or in preparation for publication in peer-reviewed journals.  Submit any direct questions regarding this position to

The Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering 

The Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering (CEGE) prepares professionals to address the most demanding problem that faces human kind: the requirement to balance environmental health with growing societal needs for natural resources, sustainable infrastructure and services. This requires the skillful conception, planning, design, construction and operation of facilities that enfold modern life, ranging from smart urban services to intelligent infrastructure to earth observing systems.

The demand for civil, environmental and geodetic engineers is increasing significantly, due in part by efforts to rebuild, improve and make our country’s infrastructure resilient and sustainable. These include highways, bridges, tunnels, dams, harbors, airports, waterways, railways, power plants, air/water treatment plants, drainage systems and waste disposal facilities.
