University's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering invites applications for a faculty position in the area of Reliability and Risk Engineering

The individual must have strong research interests in the probabilistic aspects of structural and/or geotechnical engineering systems affected by natural or man-made hazards. Candidates with interests in emerging technologies (such as health monitoring, control, and advanced materials) are encouraged to apply.

Stanford's program in Structural Engineering and Geomechanics currently has seven faculty members, about 40 M.S. students, and a similar number of Ph.D. students. The faculty is associated closely with the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center and the Center for Integrated Facility Engineering. The main focus for research and teaching is in the following areas: earthquake engineering and structural dynamics, performance based engineering, risk and reliability analysis for hazard mitigation, structural damage assessment and health monitoring, intelligent systems and structural control, computer-aided engineering and design automation, and computational mechanics.

The position is tenure-track, and the appointment will be made at the Assistant Professor level. Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from women and members of ethnic minorities.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Applicants should send a resume, transcripts and a list of potential references (with e-mail addresses, if available) by November 1, 1998 to:

Professor Kincho H. Law
Faculty Search Committee
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Structural Engineering & Geomechanics Program
