The George Mason University, Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental and Infrastructure Engineering invites applications from outstanding established researchers and academics for the Bill and Eleanor Hazel Endowed Chair in Civil Infrastructure Engineering for a tenured position at the Associate or Full Professor level. The Hazel Endowed Chair, at $3 million, is the largest endowed Chair at George Mason University and was established to support research and leadership on the nation’s most pressing infrastructure challenges. The successful incumbent is expected to lead an annual symposium to address the nation’s critical infrastructure issues and therefore should have a vision for novel research and policy to ensure infrastructure sustainability.
Search priority will be given to applicants with established, vibrant, externally funded research programs in resilient and sustainable systems in the context of transportation, geotechnical, structural or water/environmental engineering as they relate to civil infrastructure. Researchers focusing on innovation utilizing high performance computer simulation and visualization are especially encouraged. Collaboration with the region’s world class laboratories is encouraged, including those at the nearby U.S. Geological Survey, Federal Highway Administration Turner Fairbank Highway Research Center, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Institute for Water Resources, Department of Defense Army and Navy Research Labs, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Department of Agriculture, and the forward-looking research branches of Virginia’s state agencies. High potential to collaborate with existing faculty and the ability to bridge to other civil engineering areas are advantages. An earned Ph.D. in civil engineering or a closely aligned field is required.
The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering in the Volgenau School of Engineering offers the M.S., M.Eng. and Ph.D. in addition to the ABET-accredited B.S. in civil engineering. The Bill and Eleanor Hazel Endowed Chair in Civil Infrastructure Engineering is one component of the recent influx of resources into a department positioned for inventive research to address national and global challenges in civil engineering.
The Volgenau School of Engineering, with eight departments, five research centers, and 151 full-time faculty members, is fast-tracked for strategic expansion. George Mason University is the largest state university in Virginia, and is located in the affluent northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. Mason is ranked by the U.S. News and World Report as an “up and coming” national university, and by the Times Higher Education supplement as one of the top 100 universities internationally under 50 years old.
