Department: Durham School of Arch Engr & Const-4975
Description of Work:
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) invites applications for a Presidential Scholar position within the Charles W. Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction.
The Presidential Scholar position will be filled with a full professor who has been exceptionally successful in the academic world. This is a tenured appointment. The candidate will have distinguished themselves as a top researcher in their field, as demonstrated by a body of significant published scholarly work, consistently high levels of external funding from government and/or industry, and by the respect of a wide range of peers within his or her field.
Although the focus of the Presidential Scholar is primarily research and student training, the candidate will be expected to develop courses in their specialized area. Therefore, the candidate should have a demonstrated ability to be an effective teacher.
The Durham School consists of approximately 30 tenured/tenure-track 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 significant endowment (the only endowed unit in the College of Engineering) and world-class industry ties. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is one of the best employers in Nebraska, according to a list compiled by Forbes and Statista in June 2019.
We seek outstanding candidates in all architectural engineering and construction areas that relate to Building Information Modeling (BIM), healthcare facilities, and smart buildings, as these are growing research thrusts in the Durham School. Applicants must have excellent communication skills and a strong desire to work in a diverse and collaborative environment.
Opportunities for collaborations across the University of Nebraska include the industry, University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), Innovation Campus and other state- and federally-funded research centers and programs.
DSAEC offers highly competitive salaries and other opportunities to its faculty in a fast growing environment. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications.
Minimum Required Qualifications:
Qualified candidates must have a Ph.D. in Architectural Engineering, Construction or a closely related field (i.e. civil, mechanical, electrical, structural engineering focused primarily on building systems); be exceptionally successful in the academic world; have the respect of a wide range of peers within their field; have distinguished themselves a top researcher in their field; have a body of significant published scholarly work; demonstrate consistently high levels of external funding from government and/or industry; have demonstrated ability to be an effective teacher; possess excellent communication skills and have a strong desire to work in a diverse and collaborative environment.
