Tenured Professor (Department Chair)

Stony Brook University seeks a visionary leader with proven academic and research track record to chair a young and rapidly growing Department of Civil Engineering starting August 2018 or on a mutually agreed date thereafter. The Department had its first graduates in 2016, completed its first ABET visit in October 2017 and is currently in the final review for accreditation through ABET.

The Department has active research programs in Coastal Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, as well as Structures and Construction Materials, and Transportation. As one of only two comprehensive (Bachelors to PhD) civil engineering programs within the State University of New York, the Department of Civil Engineering at Stony Brook University is well poised to play a key role in addressing the critical infrastructure challenges regionally and globally. It jointly directs the New York State Center for Clean Water Technology with the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences. It plays a key role in the newly funded Infrastructure, Transportation and Security Center. The department is also a critical part of the Coastal Zone Management and Engineering Cluster at Stony Brook University. More about the Department can be found at http://www.stonybrook.edu/civil/.

Stony Brook University, home to many highly ranked graduate research programs, is located 60 miles from New York City on Long Island's scenic North Shore. Our 1,040-acre campus is home to 24,600 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students and more than 13,500 faculty and staff, including those employed at Stony Brook Medicine, Suffolk County's only academic medical center and tertiary care provider. The University is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities and co-manager of nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), a multidisciplinary research laboratory supporting world class scientific programs utilizing state-of-the-art facilities such as the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, the National Synchrotron Light Source, and the Center for Functional Nanomaterials, and the New York Blue IBM BG/L+P supercomputer, owned by Stony Brook and managed by BNL. Stony Brook is a partner in managing the Laboratory for the Department of Energy, and is the largest institutional scientific user of BNL facilities. As such, many opportunities exist for collaborative research, and in some cases, joint appointments can be arranged.
