The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (ce.gatech.edu) at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) invites applications for a teaching & research faculty position at the Assistant Professor or Associate Professor level in Environmental Engineering. This is a full-time tenure track position with the Georgia Tech Shenzhen Institute (GTSI) in Shenzhen, China. Applications are also invited for a teaching faculty position at https://ce.gatech.edu/jobs/internal/7935
GTSI is a Joint Institute between Georgia Tech and Tianjin University (TJU) and is located in Shenzhen, the so-called “Silicon Valley of China”. GTSI has received approval from the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia and the Chinese Ministry of Education to offer Georgia Tech’s existing Master’s degree programs in Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Analytics, Computer Science, and Industrial Design. Georgia Tech is responsible for Georgia Tech academic program operations at GTSI. A subset of the GTSI student body will also receive a Tianjin University Master’s degree (double MS degrees) by completing additional TJU graduate coursework and dissertation requirements beyond the Georgia Tech degree requirements.
Georgia Tech’s undergraduate Environmental Engineering program is currently ranked No. 4 and its graduate Environmental Engineering program is ranked No. 5 in the U.S. according to the U.S. News and World Report.
Successful GTSI faculty candidates will be expected to teach courses from Georgia Tech’s MS curriculum in Environmental Engineering and mentor a diverse student body. This teaching & research faculty position requires a balance of teaching, research, funding and service activities. Candidates shall have either demonstrated or shown a clear potential for creative and independent research that would lead to a strong, extramurally funded research program and recognition in the professional field.
Employment, compensation and benefits of these faculty members will be through GTSI. They will be interviewed by the relevant faculty body at Georgia Tech. Successful candidates will be granted Georgia Tech adjunct faculty status and are expected to teach the Georgia Tech curriculum in English at GTSI. Both the faculty and the student bodies at GTSI are expected to be diverse and international. Chinese language skills are not a requirement for employment with GTSI.
