Position #1 - Candidates must hold a Master’s degree or Ph.D. in civil/environmental engineering, or a closely-related field. The successful candidate will teach a three-credit, engineering hydraulics and hydrology course during the spring academic semesters beginning January 2020. Lecture time is twice or three time per week, depending on instructor preference. The topics of this course include hydraulic machinery, pipe network analysis, open channel flow, sewer system design, culverts, flow gauging, retention/detention basin design, and hydrograph analysis.

Position #2 - Candidates must hold a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, or a closely-related field, and must have five or more years experience in the practice of civil engineering. The successful candidate will teach a three credit, senior-level capstone design course in civil engineering during both regular academic semesters (Fall and Spring) beginning August 2019. Lecture time is one or two evenings a week based on instructor preference. The instructor’s primary responsibilities are to help multi-disciplinary groups determine a work scope, define presentation and report deliverables, schedule industry guest speakers and/or site visits, and assess project outcomes.
