Applications are invited for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position in the field of Resilient Infrastructure at The Ohio State University. The primary appointment will be in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering (CEGE) with a joint appointment in the Department of Integrated Systems Engineering (ISE) in the College of Engineering at OSU. Areas of interest broadly include planning, design, monitoring, assessment, performance forecasting, and decision-making aspects of infrastructure systems with a focus on resilience and the nexus of resilience and sustainability. Methodologies of interest include, but are not limited to, physics-based modeling, stochastic representations, empirical techniques including statistical inference and machine learning, simulation, and optimization. Large-scale network-based infrastructure systems at any stage of the life-cycle are of particular interest, especially energy, wastewater, water, and transportation systems.

This position is among many substantial investments in faculty positions and research related to sustainability and resilience by the university to establish Ohio State as a global leader in these areas. The successful candidate will join a highly collaborative interdisciplinary community of scholars in the Sustainable and Resilient Economy (SRE) program https://discovery.osu.edu/sustainable-and-resilient-economy, which includes faculty members with varied disciplines spanning engineering, environmental sciences, city and regional planning, business, social and behavioral sciences, public health, and public policy. The SRE program seeks to advance sustainability science by developing a more holistic understanding of sustainable and resilient production and consumption systems, human-environment interactions, and innovations in sustainable technologies and governance.  The successful candidate is expected to develop a nationally-recognized, externally funded research program; publish in high quality journals; participate in collaborative teams and interdisciplinary research on sustainability and resilience topics; contribute effective instruction at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the host departments; supervise and mentor graduate students; and provide professional and university service. This is a full-time (9-month) tenure-track position, beginning in August 2019.
