      Position Overview


*Organization*: College of Engineering,Civil and Environmental 

*Title*: Assistant Professor, Associate Professor

*Search Number*: AA14441


      Position Details


The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the 
University of Washington (UW) is in an ambitious, multi‐year period of 
growth and renewal. As part of this expansion, applications are being 
solicited for a full‐time, tenure‐track faculty position in Modeling of 
Coastal and Estuarine Hydrodynamics. Applications are sought from 
qualified candidates with a strong background in fluid mechanics and 
estuarine / coastal processes, with an emphasis on numerical modeling. 
Particular areas of specialization could include, but are not limited 
to: numerical modeling related to environmental fluids mechanics, 
fluvial, estuarine and coastal processes, sediment transport, waves, 
restoration, and pollutant transport/fate.

The ideal candidate would leverage existing departmental and university 
strengths in field observations of estuarine / coastal systems, 
laboratory experiments, remote sensing, hydrological modeling, marine 
geology and physical oceanography.

Candidates should therefore have a strong foundation for 
interdisciplinary research and a history of successful collaborative 
investigations with colleagues in relevant physical, biological, 
chemical, and/or engineering sub‐disciplines. Successful candidates will 
also have a strong interest in teaching and mentoring, contributing to 
the existing range of courses and to the development of innovative 
undergraduate and graduate curricula that integrate across traditional 
civil and environmental engineering and science disciplines.

Candidates at the rank of Assistant Professor are strongly encouraged, 
but those with an established reputation as a leader in their field will 
also be considered at the rank of Associate Professor. A PhD, or foreign 
equivalent, in civil or environmental engineering, physical 
oceanography, or a related discipline is required.

Applications should include (1) a cover letter, (2) a curriculum vitae, 
(3) a one‐page description of the candidate’s vision for research 
activities, (4) a one‐page description of the candidate’s vision for 
teaching, and (5) a list of at least three references. Applications must 
be submitted at: 
www.engr.washington.edu/facsearch/apply.phtml?pos_id=183. Questions 
regarding the application process may be directed to 
search at ce.washington.edu. Applicant review will begin December 1, 2015 
and will continue until the position is filled.

service. The University of Washington is building a culturally diverse 
faculty and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, 
individuals with disabilities and covered veterans. The University of 
Washington is the recipient of a 2006 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Faculty 
Career Flexibility and a 2001 National Science Foundation ADVANCE 
Institutional Transformation Award to increase the advancement of women 
faculty in science, engineering, and math (see 
www.engr.washington.edu/advance). University of Washington is an 
affirmative action and equal opportunity employer. All qualified 
applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to 
race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity,
