The Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction (DSAEC) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln http://engineering.unl.edu/durhamschool invites applications for a tenure-track position at that Assistant Professor level in our Architectural Engineering (AE) Program.
The UNL College of Engineering is undergoing an exciting period of significant growth, related in part to the University joining the Big Ten Conference. The Durham School consists of approximately 30 faculty, 500 undergraduate students, and 100 graduate students, offering programs in both Omaha (The Peter Kiewit Institute) and in Lincoln. The Durham School has a $30M endowment and is situated perfectly for an Architectural engineering program with several Architecture/Engineering design firms’ headquarters in Omaha, such as HDR, DLR, Leo A Daly, and many others. The Nebraska AE program has very strong ties with the industry and offers both faculty and students continued collaboration opportunities with the industry. As one of many examples of this continuous and fruitful collaboration with our industry, the AE program recently received the Grand Prize from NCEES for industry-academic partnerships.
Preference will be given to candidates who may also have research that relates to Building Information Modeling (BIM), healthcare facilities, and smart buildings, as these are growing research thrusts in the DSAEC. The selected candidate will have research, teaching (both at undergraduate and graduate levels), and service responsibilities for the AE program. Therefore, the preferred candidates should demonstrate a commitment to excellence in both teaching and research.
