Job description

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University (Ithaca campus) invites applications for a faculty position (all ranks considered) in the broad areas of natural and engineered systems and their robustness, resiliency and sustainability in the face of climate change and extreme events.

Computational, theoretical, or experimental research programs are encouraged. In general, we prioritize the overall originality and promise of the applicant’s work, rather than the sub-area of specialization. This includes fundamental science that informs applied research fields as well as impactful applied research. While not required, utilization of our significant laboratory facilities, including the Bovay Laboratory Complex, the Environmental Fluid Mechanics Teaching Laboratory, the DeFrees Hydraulics Laboratory, and the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source will be favorably considered.

The potential to form large research teams or radical collaborations to address complex problems will be viewed favorably, as well as potential linkages to Cornell Tech (NYC campus). Cornell University fosters interdisciplinary research and an atmosphere of cooperation through its Centers and Field system. Faculty will have outstanding opportunities and are expected to collaborate with faculty, research scientists, and graduate students across many Fields (e.g., Earth Sciences, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Computer Science, Systems Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Operations Research and Information Engineering, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Natural Resources and the Environment, Design and Environmental Analysis, Landscape Architecture), and Centers/Facilities (e.g., Center for Advanced Computing, Center for Applied Math, Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability, Institute for Computational Sustainability, AI for Science Institute, AFRL Regional Network Mid-Atlantic Hub).
