Texas A&M Engineering is seeking to fill up to five senior academic positions at the associate and full professor ranks across a wide range of engineering disciplines to work with the new Center for Infrastructure Renewal (CIR), a joint effort of the Texas Engineering Experiment Station, the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, and the Texas A&M University System. Applicants must have an earned doctorate in a science or engineering discipline. Candidates applying at the associate professor rank must have an established research portfolio that includes an escalating publication record, significant funding, and evidence of teaching excellence. They must also demonstrate that the potential development of their research interests match a trajectory toward eminence in their field. Individuals applying at the professor level are expected to be national and international leaders in research with
scholarly reputations possess a record of teaching excellence, and have evidence of significant engagement in professional service. The successful applicants will be required to teach; advise and mentor graduate students; develop an independent, externally funded research program; participate in all aspects of the department’s activities; and serve the profession. In addition, it is expected that faculty will perform research in support of the mission and vision of the CIR. Faculty appointments will be made within the department most closely associated with the candidate’s expertise, and joint appointments with other engineering departments will be encouraged to enhance the multidisciplinary nature of the center’s mission. The Center for Infrastructure Renewal (CIR) at Texas A&M University provides access to some of the nation’s most technologically advanced research facilities that include a new campus developed to promote an ideal location for companies to design, develop, and test new technologies and interact with faculty researchers through the CIR. This world-class facility currently features laboratories and testing facilities equipped with the latest technologies dedicated to infrastructure materials, corrosion, materials evaluation, electric power grid, and pipeline system integrity and infrastructure systems.
