The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida invites applications for multiple 9 month, tenure track, full-time positions at the rank of Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in the Engineering School of Sustainable Infrastructure and Environment, Environmental Engineering Science area focusing on Computational Sustainability and Sustainable Systems Engineering.

Research in this area is motivated by the interdisciplinary, global-scale challenges facing humanity in the next century (e.g., global climate change, population growth, pollution, and resource limitation). This hire will capitalize on existing strengths across UF and the HWCOE (water systems, modeling/computation, systems ecology, food systems innovation) and strongly position UF to compete for funding across multiple federal programs. We seek candidates with cutting-edge computer science and data analysis skills and expertise in one or more of the following areas: computational sustainability, engineering sustainability and resilience; ecosystem services modeling and valuation; systems science and ecology; environmental/ecological economics; lifecycle assessment; and biophysical, social science, and engineering integration.

The successful candidate must have a PhD in one of the areas listed above, or in a closely related field with a strong computer science or data analysis background. Successful candidates should have a record and a strong interest in teaching and mentoring, contributing to the existing courses and to the development of innovative undergraduate and graduate curricula that encompass environmental engineering science disciplines. In addition, candidates should have a solid foundation for interdisciplinary research and successful collaborative investigations in relevant disciplines, as demonstrated in their record of peer-reviewed publications and proposal writing. The successful candidate should have a strong record of peer-reviewed publications, successful proposal writing, graduate student mentoring, and teaching of undergraduate and/or graduate students.

 Ideal candidates will have a strong history of leading or participating in large interdisciplinary research programs and experience applying innovative computational approaches to complex environmental challenges.
