The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) and the Thomas Lord Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science (MEMS) in the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University invite applicants for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level with research interests in engineering solutions to climate and sustainability challenges. This cluster hire across two highly collaborative departments is synergistic with Duke's University-Wide Climate Commitment (https://2022.climate.duke.edu).
Expertise is sought in the broad areas of climate and sustainability with an emphasis on engineering solutions. Areas of interest include but are not limited to: decarbonization, energy conversion and storage, greenhouse gas sequestration, large-scale modeling and simulation, renewable energy, sensing and controls, smart and sustainable materials, systems engineering, and thermal fluids. The overall quality of the candidate’s research is valued more than the specific area.
