All –

The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geo- Engineering at the University
of Minnesota seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of
water resources. We are particularly interested in applicants with strong core
fundamentals in environmental fluid mechanics that allow them to easily move
across disciplinary boundaries and become involved in department, university,
and national interdisciplinary research opportunities. The position is expected to
be at the rank of assistant professor, although exceptional candidates at all ranks
will be considered. 

Areas of interest include hydrology, physical limnology, stream hydraulics,
computational fluid dynamics, atmospheric boundary layer, and environmental
management and sensing. Candidates will be expected to initiate and maintain a
strong externally-funded research program. Teaching responsibilities include
core undergraduate and graduate courses in water resources engineering, as
well as the opportunity to develop new courses in specialty areas. An earned
doctorate is required at the time of appointment. 

Applications must be completed online at http://ift.tt/1M1nfhe
(assistant professor) or http://ift.tt/1lrWVZ1 (professor). Include a letter of

references, and a statement of teaching and research interests. The review of
applications will begin December 30, 2015. Applications will continue to be
accepted until the position is filled. Expected appointment is Fall 2016. 

The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geo- Engineering at the University
of Minnesota is affiliated with St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) and the faculty
member will have access to the excellent facilities at SAFL. Other major research
centers include the National Center for Earth Surface Dynamics 2, EOLOS Wind
Energy Research Consortium, Multi-Axial Subassemblage Testing Laboratory,
