Available Geotechnical Positions at:

Georgia Tech

[Posted: 99/01/06]

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for tenure-track positions in Geosystems Engineering and Pavement/Geotechnical Materials. Individuals with demonstrated excellence and interests in innovative experimental or numerical methods are strongly encouraged to apply. The School is particularly interested in individuals who can contribute to cross-disciplinary education and research initiatives. Applicants should have earned a Ph.D., have demonstrated a strong research interest and have the potential to develop a reputation for excellence in teaching. Applications at all academic levels will be considered. Georgia Tech's Geosystems Engineering program currently has one research and eight full-time academic faculty members. This allows both diversity and specialization within the group, supports a comprehensive course curriculum and enables a broad range of synergetic research opportunities. Between 50and 60 graduate students are enrolled each year (50% are Ph.D. students). About 10 undergraduate students are actively involved in research projects. In addition to research support from traditional federal, state and private industry sources, the faculty have significant involvement with the NSF sponsored Mid-America Earthquake Center, the State sponsored Georgia Transportation Institute and the industry sponsored Center for Mining and Petroleum Geomechanics.

Consideration of applicants will begin on March 1, 1999 and will continue until the positions are filled. Applications should include a detailed resume, a two-page summary of research and teaching interests and the names and contact information (mail, phone, fax, email) for three references. Send applications to:

Dr. Michael D. Meyer, Chair
