Subject: FW: Four faculty positions in Coastal Hazards Prediction and
Mitigation at Louisiana State University


(Coastal Hazards Prediction and Mitigation)

Center for Computation and 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 (CCT) at Louisiana State
University invite applications for four joint faculty positions

in Coastal Hazards Prediction and Mitigation (CHAPM). We are seeking
world-class leaders, exemplary mid-career scholars, 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 positions
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

- Regional Climate Change

*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 (e.g.,
Coastal Studies Institute), 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 31, 2013 or until candidates are selected.  Apply

online and view a more detailed ad at: www.lsusystemcareers.lsu.edu.
