The Sonny Astani Department of Civil and Environmental
Engineering (http://cee.usc.edu) in the USC Viterbi School of
Engineering is searching for outstanding faculty candidates in all
areas of environmental engineering. Applications and nominations
for tenure-track or tenured faculty positions at all levels are
sought. The USC Viterbi School of Engineering is committed to
increasing the diversity of its faculty and welcomes applications
from women, individuals from racial/ethnic populations
demographically underrepresented in engineering, veterans, and
individuals with disabilities.
We expect all candidates to have a strong commitment to
research, doctoral student mentoring, and teaching at the
undergraduate and graduate levels. Applicants should have a
doctorate in environmental engineering or a related field of study,
and those applying for Associate Professor or Professor ranks must
have a well-established and accomplished academic record. The
intellectual depth, innovation, and promise of the candidate are of
higher priority than their specific research area.
The position is available starting August 16, 2022. To receive
full consideration, candidates should apply on-line at: https://usccareers.usc.edu/search-jobs.
Application materials must include a cover letter, curriculum
vitae, statement of research interests (1 page), statement of
teaching interests (1 page), succinct statement on fostering an
environment of diversity and inclusion and contact information for
five references. To receive full consideration, all materials
should be received by November 30, 2021; applications received
after this deadline might not be considered. All application
materials will be held in the strictest confidence. For more
information, interested individuals are welcome to contact Prof.

The Astani Department has 26 tenured/tenure track faculty members,
including four chaired professorships, nine current or former Young
Investigator and Early Career awardees, and many fellows of
professional organizations. The Department recently renovated the
environmental engineering laboratories with a multimillion-dollar
investment from the USC Viterbi School, including new equipment and
renovated space to support cutting-edge research.
In November 2007, the Department was the beneficiary of
a $17 million pledge from Sonny Astani, the
largest ever bestowed on a department of civil and environmental
engineering at that time. The USC Viterbi School (http://viterbi.usc.edu) is among the top engineering
schools in the world. It counts 189 full-time, tenure-track faculty
members, and it is home to the Information Sciences Institute, two
National Science Foundation Engineering Research Centers, a
Department of Energy EFRC (Energy Frontiers Research Center), and
the Department of Homeland Security’s first University Center of
Excellence, CREATE. The School is affiliated with the Alfred E.
Mann Institute for Biomedical Engineering, the Institute for
Creative Technologies, and the USC Stevens Center for Innovation.
Research expenditures typically exceed $210 million annually.
