Geoenvironmental Engineering, University of Waterloo, Canada

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Waterloo invites applications from outstanding individuals for a tenure-track position in geoenvironmental engineering with an expected start date of September 01, 2016. It is anticipated that the position will be at the assistant or associate professor rank, but exceptional cases at the full professor rank may be considered. Applicants should have expertise in the application of quantitative methods to problems in one or more of the following research areas: soil and groundwater remediation, treatment of hazardous waste, solid waste management, or other related and emerging geoenvironmental research areas. Preference will be given to candidates
who will combine excellence in teaching with a demonstrated capacity to conduct novel, interdisciplinary research that will expand and complement our current departmental research
strengths.

Applicants must have potential or proven ability to develop an internationally recognized research program, must have excellent communication skills, and must have a strong commitment to teaching at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. In particular, the successful applicant must have a strong interest in innovative teaching methods and curriculum development to support our undergraduate civil, environmental and geological engineering programs. The applicant should be able to teach several of the following undergraduate courses: environmental chemistry, water quality engineering, contaminant transport, environmental modelling, laboratory analysis and field sampling techniques, and solid waste management. The ideal applicant should expect to work with industrial partners and generate collaborative research funding to lead a successful research program.

The successful applicant must have a PhD in geoenvironmental engineering or an equivalent discipline and is expected to have an engineering license for practice in Canada or to apply for an engineering license with the Professional Engineers of Ontario within 5 years. Based on qualifications and rank, the salary range for this position is $100,000 to $150,000. Negotiations beyond this salary range will be considered for exceptionally qualified candidates. The University of Waterloo respects, appreciates and encourages diversity.
