The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Villanova Univerisity seeks a full-time continuing non-tenure track (CNT) assistant professor position starting in the fall 2019 semester. The Department is recognized as a national leader in providing a distinctive broad-based civil engineering education grounded in Augustinian Catholic values, encouraging our students to have a strong commitment to service, and performing high-quality scholarly research.
The Department is looking for a versatile faculty member that can contribute to and enhance our program, particularly in the areas of geotechnical, transportation, and construction management engineering.
Villanova is a Catholic university sponsored by the Augustinian order. Diversity and inclusion have been and will continue to be an integral component of Villanova University's mission. The University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and seeks candidates who understand, respect and can contribute to the University's mission and values.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach a variety of undergraduate courses, such as the Mechanics sequence (e.g., Statics and Strength of Materials), CEE Fundamentals, and Construction Management/Engineering Economics, in addition to technical courses in the areas of geotechnical and transportation engineering. A typical teaching load is 12 contact hours (four course sections) with three preparations per semester.
Candidates must possess a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering (must be completed at the time of hire), a dedication to teaching excellence, and a commitment to impactful engineering service. Relevant engineering work experience and professional registration (or work towards professional registration) are desired. In addition to the primary responsibility of teaching, the successful candidate will be expected to advise students and perform service within the academic community. The candidate may also have an opportunity to engage in scholarship as time and resources permit. After the initial year of employment, the continuing position is renewable on a three-year cycle and opportunities exist for promotion to associate and full professor levels.

Degree programs offered through the Department include B.S. (Civil Engineering), M.S. (Civil Engineering and Water Resources/Environmental), and Ph.D. degrees. We are acknowledged as a premier program known for our outstanding pedagogy and curricula, international opportunities, and personal attention to students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The Department has built excellent infrastructure to support teaching, including transportation, environmental, fluids, and water resources laboratories. In addition, the campus is home to the Richard K. Faris '69 CE, '70 MSCE Structural Engineering Teaching and Research Laboratory and a research-active geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering laboratory. Opportunities for multi- and cross-disciplinary collaborative work exist with other laboratory facilities within the College of Engineering and the University.
