The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech is seeking to fill a tenure-track position in Geotechnical Engineering. The position is open at the Assistant Professor level. We have a very dynamic geotechnical program that has enjoyed continuous strong support from the Department and College, and we are excited about this opportunity to add a new member to our program.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering or a closely aligned field, should demonstrate a strong commitment to scholarly work, sponsored research, mentoring students, undergraduate instruction, and specialized graduate education. The successful candidate will have a research focus on geological engineering or a closely related discipline, with a potential focus on application to rapidly emerging areas such as intelligent infrastructure, remote sensing, and/or analysis of large data sets for geotechnical engineering applications, among others. The capacity to obtain registration as a Professional Engineer (PE) is desirable, but not required.
