Job Description:

The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida invites applications for a tenure-track/tenured faculty position (Assistant Professor) in its Air Resource Program.

Applicants should have an earned doctorate in Environmental Engineering, Atmospheric Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or a closely related field. The appointment is expected to be at the Assistant Professor level.

The new faculty member will be expected to actively pursue sponsored research in the broad area of air quality such as atmospheric sciences, instrumentation, field studies, health effects, climate change, air quality modeling, particulate matter control, and atmospheric dynamics. The successful candidate should have a strong record or potential for interdisciplinary research and successful collaborative investigations in relevant disciplines, as demonstrated in their record of peer-reviewed publications and proposal development. He/she is anticipated to teach undergraduate and graduate level courses.

Currently, ESSIE has 48 tenured/tenure-track faculty, including 17 ASCE Fellows and 13 NSF CAREER award winners. The CCE and EES graduate and undergraduate programs are all ranked among the top 20 for public universities.
