Reference no. 906/0316
The University of Sydney is Australia’s first university and has an outstanding global reputation for academic and research excellence, employing over 7600 permanent staff, supporting over 60,000 students.
Applications are invited for the appointment of a Professor/Associate Professor in the area of water resources and environmental fluids engineering in the School of Civil Engineering, within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies. We are seeking candidates with an outstanding record of research and scholarship with proven and substantial research expertise in environmental fluid engineering areas of interest to the school, including, but not limited to, fluid mechanics, wind engineering, hydraulics, hydrology, water-soil-bio interactions, buoyancy-driven flows, water resources engineering, and coastal engineering.
As the successful candidate, you will have an outstanding track record of research and scholarship, and will bring leadership expertise in environment-related areas including, but not limited to, geophysical flows, water and land resources management, watershed processes, and energy efficiency, and be capable of linking physical and biological processes with innovative approaches.
You will be responsible for teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in one or more of the areas of fluid mechanics, hydrology, hydraulics, and wind engineering; and the supervision of research students in these and other specialist areas. You should be able to demonstrate a commitment to high standards of teaching and to the maintenance of academic standards in a broadly based civil engineering school.
The fluid mechanics laboratory in the school is well equipped with a range of experimental rigs, instrumentation and high performance computational facilities. The school is committed to increasing its research output and to increasing the number of research students.
As Professor/Associate Professor, you will be expected to widen the research activity of the fluids group, which has achieved wide recognition in fundamental fluid mechanics, buoyancy-driven flows, building ventilation, lake and reservoir dynamics, environmental modelling, wave and wind energy, and wind engineering. You will be also expected to engage with the wider research community related to water within our faculty and other faculties at the University.
The successful applicant will be offered a full-time continuing position, subject to completion of a satisfactory probation and confirmation period for new appointees.
For more information on the position, faculty and University, please request the candidate brochure by contacting Ms Nicole Pearson, Recruitment Administrator – Senior Academic, firstname.lastname@example.org
