This position calls for someone who is self-motivated and adaptable, intelligent, possesses a global vision and who is interested in working in a dynamic, multi-cultural institution.

 

Unit Description:

A four-year accredited engineering degree program to help meet current and growing demand for engineering expertise in Guam’s private and public sectors. The anticipated rapid economic growth and development in our community and region over the next decade will produce an acute need for engineering talent to support new construction, repair and rehabilitation of aging infrastructure, development of natural resources, and environmental preservation and protection. It is therefore envisioned that the engineering curriculum will focus, at least initially, on civil and environmental engineering. The project goal is to establish a four-year accredited engineering degree program at UOG. The degree program currently offers a four year Bachelor of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering. The program will be accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The program has faculty with expertise in the basic civil engineering and environmental fields. A new building that will house the program is under construction. There will be adequate space for classrooms, laboratories, and office space for students and faculty.

Character of Duties:

The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate expertise and scholarly interests in areas related to structural engineering topics and to develop and teach curricula in those and other related Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) areas. In addition, duties will include advising students and developing an externally funded research program in his or her area of specialization. Furthermore, an ability to contribute to other general learning outcomes including construction management, surveying, engineering ethics, economics, and sustainability would be considered as anadded asset.

Qualifications:

Minimum:
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Civil (Structural or related) Engineering from an ABET accredited institution or foreign equivalent, evidence of scholarly achievement, and U.S. professional engineering registration or capability of obtaining the Guam registration within a reasonable period of time is required.
