The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), in collaboration with the Partnership for Air Quality, Climate, and Health (PACH), at Colorado State University (CSU) invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in the area of environmental engineering with a focus on air quality. CSU is a land-grant institution with a strong commitment to research and education that impact society and address global problems.
Description: We are seeking an environmental engineer or scientist who specializes in air quality research. The focus may be on modeling and/or laboratory and field work. Modeling expertise may include air quality on urban to regional scales, air quality forecasting, or modeling of pollutant sources, dispersion, and impacts on local to regional scales (list is exemplary and not exclusive). Laboratory and field work may include development and deployment of sensor systems for air pollutants / air toxics, development of new methods for quantifying pollutant concentrations and environmental impacts, or field work aimed at improving understanding of pollutant sources, dispersion, and impacts (list is exemplary and not exclusive). There is particular interest in applied research that could lead to innovative solutions to air pollution problems, both locally and globally. The successful applicant’s interests should complement existing expertise across CSU. The position will support the teaching and research mission of the Environmental Engineering program through his/her research program and by developing and teaching courses in air quality and environmental engineering. The hire is also expected to participate actively in the development and implementation of research projects launched by PACH, of which he/she will become a member. This latter requirement is consistent with the origination of this position as part of a university-wide cluster hire initiative in Air Quality, Climate and Health.
Responsibilities: The successful candidate will be expected to: (1) develop and maintain an internationally-recognized, externally-funded research program; (2) provide intellectual leadership and excellence in teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in civil and environmental engineering; (3) pursue scholarly activities; and (4) serve the academic community and contribute to university outreach. The successful candidate will be expected to address interdisciplinary research problems that complement and expand current activities in the CEE Department, and to collaborate effectively with other faculty within the Department, PACH, and across the university.
