The Pennsylvania State University College of Engineering and College of
Agricultural Sciences Announces two positions in water resources
engineering, jointly appointed between Civil and Environmental Engineering
and Agricultural and Biological Engineering.

This is an exciting opportunity for collaborative research in this rapidly
growing area. Penn State University has a strong commitment to growth in
the general area of water. The successful candidates will join more than 50
faculty members across the campus, conducting research in a wide range of
water-related topics, and will have opportunities to collaborate and
interact with these faculty through the Penn State Institutes for Energy
and the Environment, the new Water Institute, the Rock Ethics Institute,
and the Sustainability Institute, among others. The stormwater positions
support strategic thrust areas within the colleges of Engineering and
Agricultural Sciences.

*Position 1*: All ranks considered, Tenure-track, Civil and Environmental
Engineering is the home department Research thrusts relevant to this
position include, but are not limited to, prediction of water quantity and
quality impacts of urban-suburban stormwater flooding, high resolution,
modeling of local effects of current and projected stormwater practices,
testbed experimentation to evaluate benefits of a range of management
techniques with multiple constraints, climate-landuse-landcover and
infrastructure modeling of the impact and efficiency of green
infrastructure, evapotransporation in urban settings, remote-sensing and
simulation of storm water budgets and flood prediction, and impacts of
storm water management on civil infrastructure, urban channel erosion,
wetland inundation duration and riparian biogeochemistry.  Candidates will
be expected to engage in instruction at both the undergraduate and graduate
levels in the area of water resources engineering and enhance the
Department’s existing curriculum. Applicants shall hold a Ph.D. in Civil
Engineering or closely related discipline.

*Position 2*: Assistant Professor, Tenure-track, Agricultural and
Biological Engineering is the home department Research focus on resilient
approaches to stormwater management, with particular interest in designing,
modeling, and assessing decentralized stormwater infrastructure (e.g., Low
Impact Development Best Management Practices: LID BMPs).  Teaching
responsibilities will be in the area of water resource engineering, and the
faculty member will provide instruction for two undergraduate courses, and
will develop a graduate course in the water resource engineering area,
jointly offered by ABE and CEE.  Undergraduate and graduate student
advising is expected.  Applicant shall hold a Ph.D. in biological,
agricultural, civil, or environmental engineering, or a related engineering
field, with a solid core of fundamental engineering coursework.
Professional Engineer (PE) registration or pursuit thereof will be

*Position 1*: For more information or to apply, go to job #58692 at psu.jobs
; *Position 2*: For more information or to apply, go to job #58505 at
psu.jobs; Applicants should upload a letter of application, resume,
academic transcripts, a letter of research and teaching interests, and the
names and addresses of three professional references.
