Job Title: Associate Professor or Professor

Position Number: 932840

Job Description: 

The Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering and Technology announce a cross-college cluster hire in Water Resources. Applicants are invited for an associate or full professor position in the area of water resources research. The initial senior hire, whose position will begin August 13, 2018, will be tenured in the Department of Geography, Planning, and Environment. Additional searches will be initiated in Fall 2018 with the aid and input of this hire. Additional positions will include one faculty member each in the Departments of Chemistry, Engineering, and Geological Sciences.

In addition to developing and managing collaborative externally-funded research projects, the individual will teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the candidate’s area of expertise and provide service to ECU and the profession. The faculty member will also be expected to take a leadership role in the water resources cluster and as such would have a reduced teaching role commensurate with a sustained successful research track-record and effective management of the cluster.
