The Departments of Earth and Environmental Sciences and Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of New Orleans (UNO) invite applications for a dual-appointment tenure-track position at the assistant professor level to begin fall 2018. We seek a candidate with a strong commitment to high quality research as well as undergraduate and graduate education and expertise in Coastal/Marine Sciences or Coastal Engineering with specialization in fluvial, coastal or deltaic sedimentology, hydrology and sediment transport or surface hydrology/hydraulics. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Geoscience, Marine Science, Civil Engineering, Coastal Engineering or a related field and including postdoctoral research experience. The position involves teaching courses in fluvial geomorphology and river dynamics, coastal engineering, design of coastal/hydraulic structures, coastal/marine sedimentology, sediment transport, surface hydrology and contributing to the departments’ (EES and CEE) core curricula in coastal and environmental science and civil and environmental engineering. A strong background in numerical modeling is desirable. A successful candidate is expected to build his/her original independent research programs and to seek interdisciplinary collaborations within and outside the University, and seek extramural funding to support their research. Excellent opportunities exist for interdisciplinary research and work with faculty, staff, and students from diverse backgrounds, and the candidate is expected to collaborate with the departments’ faculty members, affiliate with research units on campus. Both departments support undergraduate and M.S. programs in Earth and Environmental Sciences and Civil & Environmental Engineering, and both departments participate in our interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Engineering and Applied Sciences.
