Civil - Environmental, Civil - Water / Wastewater, Civil Engineering
The Biodesign Institute and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering (IAFSE) invite applications for a full-time, tenure-track position to be primarily affiliated with the Biodesign Center for Environmental Health Engineering (CEHE). Expertise is sought in analyzing large temporal and spatial datasets on environmental quality and human health using tools such as machine learning, geographic information systems (GIS) informed epidemiology, wastewater-based epidemiology, and/or real-time sensors for assessing environmental quality and population health in the urban built environment. Outstanding candidates with an interest in the use of population health data, sensor development/deployment as well as artificial intelligence and machine learning for interpreting large, health-related datasets are particularly encouraged to apply.
Appointments will be at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor, depending on the applicant’s qualifications. The Center for Environmental Health Engineering (CEHE) works to protect human health and critical ecosystems by detecting, minimizing and ultimately eliminating harmful chemical and biological agents through early threat detection and the implementation of cost-effective engineering, clinical and policy interventions. The Center currently features three faculty with interdisciplinary expertise in analytical chemistry, biomedical informatics, risk assessment, microbiology and bioengineering. The tenure home for this position will be in one of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. The School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment and the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering are the schools most engaged in the areas of interest for this position.
The Biodesign Institute addresses today's critical global challenges in healthcare, sustainability, and security by developing solutions inspired from natural systems and translating those solutions into commercially viable products and clinical practices.
