School of Applied Engr & Tech
Dr. Thomas Juliano, Chair
The School of Applied Engineering and Technology (SAET) of the
Newark College of Engineering at NJIT invites applications for a
tenure-track Assistant Professor position in its Built Environment
Division, specializing in Concrete Industry Management (CIM) and
Construction Engineering Technology (CET), with the expectation of
a joint appointment in the John A. Reif Jr. Department of Civil and
Environmental Engineering (CEE). The Built Environment Division
administers several degree programs in these areas and enjoys
support from the concrete and construction industries. In addition,
laboratories and experimental facilities that allow extensive
experimentation for student instruction and for graduate-level
research are available. By the time of appointment, the successful
candidate must have earned a Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree, with a
record of pertinent high-quality research.
Areas of research and academic interest of particular relevance
include, but are not limited to, the following focus areas: ?
Evaluation of material properties including mechanical, durability,
volume change and performance of various concrete and concrete
composites. ? Development of sustainable construction materials
including waste and recycled materials. ? Multi-scale properties of
concrete structures. ? Performance and nondestructive assessment
and sensing of infrastructure components and systems. ? Corrosion
and deterioration of reinforced concrete and steel structures. ?
Construction engineering and safety. At over 1200 students, the
SAET has the largest undergraduate enrollment within the Newark
College of Engineering. An outgrowth of the former Department of
Engineering Technology, the SAET is well known for providing a
balance of theory and hands-on education. The NJIT campus is
located in Newark, which is the largest city in New Jersey, and
only 12 miles away from New York City. The state of New Jersey is
home to a large number of industries, including several Fortune 100
and 500 companies.
The successful candidate is expected to carry out high quality
scholarly research and collaborate with other faculty and
researchers, both within NJIT and in other institutions. The
successful candidate should have a clear plan to establish a
vibrant research program, secure external research funding, and
participate actively in guiding, educating and teaching
undergraduate and graduate students. The teaching and student
advising duties of the appointed faculty member would be divided
between the CIM and CET programs, which reside in the Built
Environment Division of the SAET, and the Civil Engineering
program, which resides in the CEE department.
