The Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics (CEEM) at the University of Arizona invites applications for the Department Head position. With the rapidly changing technologies and increasing interest in multi-disciplinary perspectives in shaping future cities, civil engineers are facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities in the decades to come. The future CEEM Department Head must be an innovative and visionary academic leader who can take the helm and spearhead the continuing transformation of the CEEM department for the challenges of the 21st century. The Department Head is responsible for managing a dynamic department which includes a diverse group of faculty, staff, students, as well as a number of modern teaching and research laboratories and other facilities. Candidates are expected to have extensive research and teaching experience at a level sufficient to qualify for appointment as a tenured Full Professor. A candidate with accomplishments in administrative leadership and team-building is preferred.
The CEEM department is recognized for both its teaching and research, offering BS (ABET accredited), MS, ME, and PhD degrees in several civil engineering disciplines, including structural engineering, hydraulic engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering and engineering mechanics.
