Three Faculty Positions to Address Water Challenges in Integrated Natural, Built, and Agricultural Environments at Assistant or Associate Professor Level

Do you want to conduct relevant research and train the next generation of scientists and engineers to address our nation’s critical water problems?

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Utah State University seeks talented applicants for a cluster hire of three tenure eligible positions at the assistant or associate level whose research will yield more holistic approaches to solving water problems across natural, built, and/or agricultural environments. We seek bright, creative, and interdisciplinary researchers who can increase Utah State University’s (USU) capacity to lead and develop the next generation of resilient solutions to water problems in these linked environments. We especially seek applicants with the passion and ability to work with others to advance fundamentally new and innovative ideas to study unanticipated and emerging problems. This cluster hire builds on existing Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) and Utah Water Research Laboratory (UWRL) strengths in hydrology, hydraulics, hydroinformatics, water resources management, irrigation, and environmental engineering.

A review of applications will begin on December 17, 2016 and will continue until all three positions are filled. Please visit for more information, or contact the search committee chair David Tarboton ( with specific questions.
