We are seeking two exceptional candidates to contribute to the development of our teaching and research programmes in structural engineering, one specifically in the area of timber engineering. 

What You Will Do

Applications are invited for two continuing (i.e., permanent and tenured) positions in structural engineering in the Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering. Appointments will be made at Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Associate Professor, or Professor levels depending on the successful candidate’s relevant experience.

One of the two appointments will be specifically made in the area of timber engineering, with the other appointment being any specialisation within structural engineering.

Your research will complement the present research activities of the Department in structural engineering. The Department is interested in receiving applications from very strong candidates in any structural engineering area, including candidates with expertise related to timber engineering; sustainable structural engineering; the behavior of structures in wind or tsunami loading; use of novel materials; preservation of the existing built environment, including masonry and/or heritage structures; and digital design and design for manufacturability. Candidates in the area of earthquake engineering would be considered if they can demonstrate significant skills relative to the existing expertise of the department in this field.

You will contribute to teaching in traditional core structural undergraduate courses and development of new courses at the postgraduate level. You will also be encouraged to develop a strong, externally-funded research programme as well as be expected to collaborate with other academics in the Department’s teaching and research activities. The appointee will also be expected to develop links with and contribute to the wider engineering profession at local, national and international levels.

Who You Are

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in structural engineering or civil engineering (or a closely aligned discipline), and have a demonstrated record of relevant published research in internationally recognized journals of the highest quality.  The successful candidate will have a commitment to excellence in teaching of core courses in structural engineering at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, delivering effective teaching methods that enable a wide range of learners to succeed.

With expertise that complements and adds to existing strengths in the Department, and the ability to work closely with industry, the successful applicant will be able to teach general structural engineering at the undergraduate and postgraduate level.

The appointee will also demonstrate a background, where appropriate given their career-to-date experience, in supervising undergraduate projects, Masters and Ph.D. students, an ability in collaborating with others in the University, and interest in contributing to Departmental, College, and University activities.
