Faculty Position in Transportation Engineering

Reposted from here.

The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Minnesota seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of transportation engineering. We are particularly interested in applicants with strong core fundamentals that allow them to easily move across disciplinary boundaries and become involved in department, university, and national interdisciplinary research opportunities. The position is expected to be at the rank of assistant professor, although exceptional candidates at all ranks will be considered.

We are seeking individuals with strong academic background and research potential in one or more of the following areas: traffic flow theory; traffic control and operations; transit operations and planning; transportation safety and security; modeling and simulation of transportation systems; intelligent transportation systems. Other areas of transportation engineering also will be considered.

Candidates will be expected to initiate and maintain a strong externally-funded research program. Teaching responsibilities will include existing undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as the opportunity to develop new courses in specialty areas. An earned doctorate is required at the time of the appointment.

Applications must be completed online at http://employment.umn.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=116093 for a tenure-track position or http://employment.umn.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=116095 for a tenured position. Include a letter of intent, a CV with a list of publications, complete contact information for three references, and a statement of teaching and research interests. The review of applications will begin December 15, 2013. Applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled. Expected appointment is Fall 2014.

The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Minnesota is affiliated with the Center for Transportation Studies and the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory, and its faculty are involved with several major research centers, including the Minnesota Traffic Observatory and the Multi-Axial SubassemblageTesting Laboratory. Civil Engineering is one of twelve departments within the College of Science & Engineering, which offers outstanding opportunities for interdisciplinary research due to the unique combination of mathematics, science, and engineering in one college. The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer. Candidates from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.

Please note, the previous ad for another pair of positions is still open:

The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Minnesota seeks applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in the areas of (1) physical-chemical processes related to environmental systems and (2) energy-environment implications of transportation.

Faculty Positions in Robotics, Sensors and Manufacturing
College of Science and Engineering
University of Minnesota, Twin Cities

The University of Minnesota is pleased to announce an initiative on Robotics, Sensors and Manufacturing, funded by the State of Minnesota. The initiative will leverage strengths in research and education in these and related areas at the University and will expand collaborations with industry to respond to emerging opportunities. In support of the initiative, the College of Science and Engineering (CSE) invites applications for multiple tenure-track and tenured positions in a coordinated recruiting process with CSE academic departments in engineering, physical and computer sciences and mathematics and collaborating programs outside of CSE, in such application areas as health sciences, biology and agriculture.

Disciplinary areas of particular interest to this search include, but are not limited, to robotics and automation, control and dynamical systems, machine learning and intelligence, image processing and computer vision, neuroengineering, materials, devices and systems for novel sensing and actuation and digital manufacturing. Successful candidates are expected to have strong commitments to cross-disciplinary collaboration in research and teaching in both undergraduate and graduate levels. These candidates must actively support the goals of the initiative in impacting the University’s contributions to such applications as terrestrial and aerial robotics, industrial automation and manufacturing, surgical robotics and image-guided therapies, medical-assist and wearable robotic systems, environmental and agricultural robotics, cognition, human-machine and human augmentation systems. Candidates must hold PhDs at the time of appointment in areas appropriate for the initiative.

Please apply online via the University of Minnesota Employment System:

employment.umn.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=114667

Applications should include cover letters referencing the Robotics, Sensors and Manufacturing faculty positions, detailed curriculum vitae, statements of teaching and research interests and lists of three references with contact information (including email addresses). Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Successful candidates will be appointed as early as Fall Semester 2014.
