The University of Texas at Austin Department of Civil, Architectural and
Environmental Engineering (CAEE) invites applications for two tenured/tenure-track positions
in Building Energy and Environments. Candidates at all ranks, Assistant/Associate/Full
Professor, will be considered. The Department seeks outstanding applicants in all areas of
engineering relevant to the topic of Building Energy and Environments with representative
examples including: 1) indoor air quality and chemistry, 2) impact of built environment on
occupant performance and/or health, 3) building energy and environmental control systems.
Successful candidates will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the CAEE
department, develop a sustainable sponsored research program, supervise graduate students,
collaborate with other faculty within and outside of the CAEE department, and be involved in
service to the university and the profession.
The CAEE department has over 55 faculty and is currently ranked number two in Civil
Engineering and number six in Environmental Engineering in the 2018 US News and World
Report. Faculty in CAEE have access to state-of-the-art research and computational facilities
including, for example, a full scale Test House (home of the largest indoor chemistry
experiment), a Façade Thermal Lab, multiple Environmental Chambers, and the Texas Advanced
Computing Center. The candidates for the BEE positions will have the opportunity to collaborate
across disciplines through campus-wide initiatives (e.g. UT’s Bridging Barriers Initiatives), as
well as through ongoing collaborations with other schools such as the School of Architecture,
and the Dell Medical School.
