Applicants for this position will work towards our departmental goal to lead the efforts of coastal urban megacities to reimagine and modernize their aging infrastructure in a way that is both equitable and climate-resilient, as well as the Grove School of Engineering’s (GSOE) goal of leading the efforts of carbon neutral infrastructure. Specific areas of interest to the department include, but are not limited to: sustainable, equitable, and resilient transportation infrastructure planning, design, and operations; advanced technology applications for transportation, including connected and automated vehicles and smart cities; and new multi-scale modeling and system management approaches that leverage emerging data streams. Candidates with potential to develop interdisciplinary research and educational programs with partners in other GSOE, CCNY, and CUNY divisions are preferred; potential areas of collaboration include, but are not limited to, artificial intelligence and computer vision applications to transportation; remote sensing and advanced geospatial analysis; transportation-energy system interdependencies; public health and community impacts of transportation and infrastructure; and urban and sustainability design.
The Department of Civil Engineering currently has 19 full-time faculty members in four areas of concentration: Environmental Engineering, Structures, Transportation, and Water Resources. Our faculty engage in a wide variety of research efforts with international, national, regional, and local agencies as well as private entities to address both complex infrastructure demands and challenges locally and globally. The Department houses several CCNY centers and CUNY institutes such as the CUNY CREST Institute and Center for Water Resources and Environmental Research, the CUNY Environmental Crossroads Initiative, the CUNY Institute for Urban Systems, the Institute for Municipal Waste Research, the Institute for Transportation Systems, NOAA Center for Earth Systems Sciences and Remote Sensing Technologies, and the University Transportation Research Center. The GSOE’s $35 million in external research last year resulted in it being classified in the top 10% of US engineering institutions. The civil engineering faculties bring in nearly half of the research dollars to the GSOE and several of our faculties have been recognized for bringing in the top research awards to the college.
