Four positions, Coastal Hazards Prediction&Mitigation at LSU

(Coastal Hazards Prediction and Mitigation)
Center for Computation and Technology
Louisiana State University

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), the Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences (DOCS),
and the Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) at Louisiana State University invite applications for four joint faculty positions
in Coastal Hazards Prediction and Mitigation (CHAPM). We are seeking world-class leaders, exemplary mid-career scholars, and
emerging junior scholars to join our dynamic, interdisciplinary research center that brings multiple departments and diverse
faculty together to solve complex problems using computational sciences integrated with coastal engineering and science.

Departmental affiliations will be made as appropriate, and all positions are tenure-track.
Preference will be given to candidates committed to building interdisciplinary research teams that complement existing strengths
among the faculty in CEE, DOCS and CCT. Candidates' fields of interest should include one or more of the following:

- Hurricane-Induced Wind and Flood Hazards
- Tsunami Hazards
- Coastal Erosion Hazard
- Oil Spill and Hypoxia Hazards
- Computational Hydrodynamics and Hydraulics in the Coastal Environment
- Regional Climate Change

Required Qualifications: Successful candidates must possess a Ph.D. within their disciplines and distinguished records of
research accomplishments and publications, as well as strong reputations in their disciplines, or the capacity to build the same in
the case of emerging scholars. A history or potential to attract extramural funding and work with interdisciplinary teams that
include doctoral students, post-docs, and research associates is expected. Candidates who demonstrate an appreciation for the
economic development potential of coastal hazards modeling and monitoring are especially encouraged to apply.

Successful candidates are expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching in their home departments, and to work
closely with faculty in CEE, DOCS and other departments at LSU (e.g., Coastal Studies Institute), as well as the CCT faculty to
foster the development of a center of excellence in Coastal Hazards Prediction and Mitigation at LSU. The CCT offers an
innovative and interdisciplinary research environment for advancing computational sciences, including a highly competitive
computing environment. We encourage applications from women and minorities. An offer of employment is contingent on a
satisfactory pre-employment background check. Application deadline is August 31, 2013 or until candidates are selected. Apply
