The Department of Geosciences and Geological and Petroleum Engineering (GGPE) at the Missouri University of Science and Technology invites applications for an Assistant Professor of Geological Engineering (tenure track) to begin in August 2018. We seek a candidate with expertise in the collection and application of remotely-sensed data (satellite, drones, or aircraft) for water resources, geotechnical, geohazards, renewable energy, ecosystem, and/or climate change research. Candidates must also be proficient in GIS. Experience with computational analysis of large remote sensing data sets, development of new data analysis techniques, and/or experience working in developing countries will be advantageous. Responsibilities include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in remote sensing, GIS, and other areas of expertise, research, and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a dynamic, independent, and externally-funded research program and to collaborate with colleagues on campus in cross-disciplinary research.
A Ph.D. in geological engineering or closely related engineering discipline or eligibility for professional engineering registration is required at the time of appointment.
