Geotechnical Engineering Faculty Postion

At UC Davis

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of California, Davis is accepting applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING. The new faculty member will be expected to develop an independent research program, teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, contribute to university and public service, and participate in professional activities.

The primary research capabilities of the appointee should be in the application of numerical methods to geotechnical engineering problems. A PhD in Civil Engineering, with a concentration in geotechnical engineering, geomechanics, or a closely related discipline, is required. Of particular interest are candidates with demonstrated skills in development and/or numerical implementation of constitutive models and solution schemes applicable to geotechnical engineering. It is desirable that candidates have an interest in collaborative research with faculty in geotechnical engineering, structural mechanics and structural engineering, including ongoing research on earthquake-related problems using the 9-m radius centrifuge of the Center for Geotechnical Modeling at UCD (see web site at http://www.engr.ucdavis.edu/~cgm). Accordingly, an interest in, and/or some experience with experimental methods is desirable.

To ensure consideration, applications should be received by February 15, 1998. Send a complete resume, statement of teaching and research interests, and names of three references to Professor Bruce L. Kutter, Geotechnical Search Committee Chair, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of California, One Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616-5294. The University of California is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. Bruce L. Kutter
