The Civil Engineering Department at Oregon Tech invites applications for a non-tenure-track Visiting Assistant Professor with a background in geotechnical engineering.

Faculty instruction is well supported with discipline-specific software, an excellent IT department, a dedicated lab technician, and Canvas as the learning management system. Our civil engineering student body of 120 students is curious and enthusiastic in the classroom and looks forward to your engaging instruction.
