The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) in the Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science (MCECS) at Portland State University (PSU) invites applicants for a tenure-track position in Transportation Engineering to begin September 2023. The position requires a doctorate in civil engineering or closely related field. While the target of hiring is at the assistant professor level, outstanding applicants may be considered at all levels (associate or full professor). A successful candidate will be required to develop an externally-sponsored research program aligned with the department’s strategic vision, teach undergraduate and graduate courses, develop new graduate courses in their area of expertise, and effectively serve the profession and university.
For this position, we seek candidates with a research focus in one or more of the following areas related to connected and autonomous vehicle technologies (CAVT): coordinated, cooperative, and robust traffic control, operations, and management to improve mobility and traffic flows using CAVT; design and maintenance of the physical and digital infrastructure necessary to support CAVT; the integration of CAVT with new mobility paradigms like mobility as a service (MaaS), cyber-physical systems and internet-of-things (IoT) architectures; cybersecurity, safety, equity, and community health impacts of CAVT; and/or data centric applications of CAVT supporting transportation planning, management, maintenance, and operations.
A successful candidate will complement our existing programs and build new departmental strengths in transportation engineering. Candidates who can effectively teach and mentor a diverse student body and who also enhance the MCECS strategic research directions are especially encouraged to apply.
