THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO, Department of Structural Engineering (SE, http://structures.ucsd.edu), has opened a search for a tenure-track faculty member in one of the two areas: (1) GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING with special interest in energy-related applications, geotechnical hazards, and geo-system testing, including centrifuge and large-scale testing; and (2) STRUCTURAL HEALTH MONITORING and PROGNOSIS with special interest in the assessment of complex civil, aerospace, mechanical, and/or marine structural systems within a reliability-based approach. A successful candidate will have the ability to teach high-quality undergraduate and graduate courses, develop an active and well-funded research program, and form synergistic connections with other areas of the Department and University. The position is expected to be filled at the Assistant Professor level; however, exceptionally qualified candidates at the Associate and Full Professor levels are also encouraged to apply. An earned doctoral degree in civil engineering, structural engineering, or closely-related field is required. The Department of Structural Engineering currently has 23 faculty members, 833 students, and approximately $6.8M awarded research contracts. The SE Department houses unparalleled large-scale testing facilities, including the NEES/UCSD Large High-Performance Outdoor Shake Table, a blast simulation facility, a Caltrans soil-structure-interaction facility, a rail defect testing facility, a high-bay structural systems laboratory, a large Caltrans 6-DOF shake table for structural response modification devices, and a 100g geotechnical centrifuge. In addition, a giant soil box for the outdoor shake table, two large direct shear/simple shear machines, and two laminar shear boxes are available within the Department. Questions can be directed to Prof. Patrick Fox, Chair of the Search Committee, at: pjfox@ucsd.edu.
