September 29, 2017

The Johns Hopkins University’s Department of Civil Engineering seeks applicants for tenure-track/tenured faculty positions at all levels and across all areas of Civil Engineering. While emphasis is in the area of Systems Engineering with particular interest in healthcare and/or infrastructure resilience, all qualified applicants in any area of Civil Engineering will be considered.

The Department of Civil Engineering has 11 faculty whose research broadly covers the areas of Structures, Systems, and Mechanics of Materials. Current enrollments in the Department are approximately 50 undergraduate students and 60 graduate students, the majority of which are Ph.D. candidates. The department maintains laboratories and major facilities for research. Strong links to JHU institutes and centers such as the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare, the Center for Systems Science and Engineering, the Center for Integrated Structures-Materials Modeling and Simulation, the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute, and the Cold-formed Steel Research Consortium expand the footprint of the Department both within and outside of the University. More information about the Department of Civil Engineering can be found at

The Whiting School of Engineering comprises over 200 full time tenure-track, research, and teaching-track faculty in nine academic programs with a total annual research budget of over $100 million. Research partnerships with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Applied Physics Laboratory, Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences make the Whiting School of Engineering a unique research and educational environment. Student enrollment exceeds 1800 at the undergraduate level with over 1000 full time MS and PhD students. The Engineering for Professionals program enrolls over 2000 part time continuing education students and is the largest program of its kind in the country.

Applicants must hold an earned doctorate in an appropriate field by the time their appointment begins. Candidates must have a demonstrated record of outstanding independent research and excellence in teaching, professional service and translation.
