Four Faculty Positions: Coastal Hazards Prediction and Mitigation

Assistant/Associate/Full Professor
(Coastal Hazards Prediction and Mitigation)
Center for Computation & Technology
Louisiana State University

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), the Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences (DOCS), and the Center for Computation & Technology at Louisiana State University invite applications for four joint faculty positions in Coastal Hazards Prediction and Mitigation (CHAPM).  We are seeking world-class leaders and emerging junior scholars to join our dynamic, interdisciplinary research center that brings multiple departments and diverse faculty together to solve complex problems using computational sciences integrated with coastal engineering and science.

Departmental affiliations will be made as appropriate, and all postions are tenure-track.  Preference will be given to candidates committed to building interdisciplinary research teams that complement existing strengths among the faculty in CEE, DOCS, and CCT.  Candidates' fields of interest should include one or more of the following:

-Hurricane-induced Wind and Flood Hazards
-Tsunami Hazards
-Coastal Erosion Hazard
-Oil Spill and Hypoxia Hazards
-Computational Hydrodynamics and Hydraulics in the Coastal Environment

Required Qualifications: Successful candidates must possess a Ph.D. within their disciplines and distinguished records of research accomplishments and publications, as well as strong reputations in their disciplines, or the capacity to build the same in the case of emerging scholars.  A history or potential to attract extramural funding and work with interdisciplinary teams that include doctoral students, post-docs, and research associates is expected.  Candidates who demonstrate an appreciation for the economic development potential of coastal hazards modeling and monitoring are especially encouraged to apply.

Successful candidates are expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching in their home departments, and to work closely with faculty in CEE, DOCS, and other departments at LSu, as well as the CCT faculty to foster the development of a center of excellence in Coastal Hazards Prediction and Mitigation at LSU.  The CCT offers an innovative and interdisciplinary research environment for advancing computational sciences, including a highly competitive computing environment.  We encourage applications from women and minorities.  An offer of employment is contingent on a satisfactory pre-employment background check.  Application deadline is August 30, 2013 or until candidates are selected.  Apply online and view a more detailed ad at: www.lsusystemcareers.lsu.edu.  Postion # 037289/90/91/92.
