Faculty Positions in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Updated: 2 months ago
Location: Cambridge, MASSACHUSETTS

The MIT Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) invites applications for a tenure-
track faculty position to begin July 1, 2023 or on a mutually agreed date thereafter. The search is for
candidates to be hired at the assistant professor level; under special circumstances, however, an
untenured associate or a tenured senior faculty appointment is possible, commensurate with
experience.


We will consider exceptional candidates in all areas relevant to the department’s mission of achieving
sustainability across scales, spanning environment, cyber-physical infrastructure, and human systems.
Candidates who can support our strategic focus on understanding and addressing the climate-
infrastructure nexus with modern data-driven and/or mechanistic approaches are especially
encouraged to apply. We invite applications from candidates with strong background in following
areas: (i) Systems Science and Engineering, including but not limited to networked systems, future
transportation and autonomous mobility systems, supply chain resilience and operations, climate risk
modeling, decarbonized energy systems; (ii) Mechanics & Materials, including (but not limited to)
sustainable materials, geomechanics; resilient infrastructure design, bio-materials for food, water,
energy security; (iii) Climate and Environment, including, coastal systems, earth systems science,
physics and chemistry of the atmosphere, and environmental life sciences (ecology & evolution,
systems & synthetic biology for environment). Building on the launch of the Schwarzman College of
Computing at MIT, the department also has a particular interest in the fundamentals and applications
of computing and data science in our core areas.

The candidate should have demonstrated excellence in original research for advancing knowledge in
one or more core areas. Faculty responsibilities include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate
levels, developing new and innovative teaching materials, conducting original scholarly research, and
student advising. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in a relevant science or engineering field by the
beginning of employment.


Applications are being accepted electronically at https://school-of-engineering-faculty-
search.mit.edu/cee. Applications must include: a cover letter, curriculum vitae, the names and
addresses of at least three references, a two-page statement of research interests, a one-page
statement of teaching interests and educational philosophy, and electronic copies of up to three
representative publications. In addition, candidates should provide a statement regarding their views
on diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past and current contributions as well as their vision
and plans for the future in these areas. It is the responsibility of the candidate to arrange for reference
letters to be uploaded at https://school-of-engineering-faculty-search.mit.edu/letters/.
Applications completed by December 1, 2022 will be given priority. With MIT’s strong commitment to
diversity in engineering education, research and practice we especially encourage under-represented
minorities and women to apply.
