Position description

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a Teaching Professor position to contribute to the transformation of the Department’s curriculum by integrating innovative tools and emerging themes related to CEE. Hiring will be at the Assistant Teaching Professor level with security-of-employment granted upon promotion to Associate Teaching Professor.

Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley is educating leaders to address the most complex and significant societal-scale challenges, including infrastructure renewal, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and the engineering of sustainable, resilient, just, and equitable systems. The discipline is evolving to take on these forward-looking challenges while making use of modern computational tools and data science methodologies. The education of future engineers must match this perspective.

Berkeley CEE is looking for a faculty member to strongly contribute to the Department’s efforts to transform its curricula to help meet these societal challenges and by leveraging the emergence of new approaches and tools to address them. We seek candidates who will contribute to teaching and curricular development from the lower-division undergraduate level to the graduate level. We are particularly interested in candidates who will develop and teach cross-cutting foundational courses in Computation and Data Science in the context of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Teaching-track faculty are educational professionals who combine institutional excellence with professional and/or scholarly achievement and activity, including creative activity, especially as they relate to instruction and pedagogy. Teaching Professors in the University of California system hold the payroll title of Lecturer with Security of Employment, or LSOE. LSOEs in the UC system have full faculty privileges and are members of the academic senate.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values in the College of Engineering. Our excellence can only be fully realized by faculty, students, and staff who share our commitment to these values. Successful candidates for our faculty positions will demonstrate evidence of a commitment to equity and inclusion. Financial and in-kind resources are available to pursue activities that help accelerate our efforts to achieve our equity and inclusion goals, with the full backing of the College. Examples of ongoing programming at the College are available at
