CEE Faculty Search in Atmospheric Science and Engineering About Northeastern:

Posted November 1, 2023

About Northeastern:

Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and the recognized leader in experience-driven lifelong learning. Our world-renowned experiential approach empowers our students, faculty, alumni, and partners to create impact far beyond the confines of discipline, degree, and campus.

Our locations—in Boston; Charlotte, North Carolina; London; Miami, Portland, Maine; Oakland; San Francisco; Seattle; Silicon Valley; Toronto; Vancouver; and the Massachusetts communities of Burlington and Nahant—are nodes in our growing global university system. Through this network, we expand opportunities for flexible, student-centered learning and collaborative, solutions-focused research.

Northeastern’s comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduate programs— in a variety of on-campus and online formats—lead to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Among these, we offer more than 195 multi-discipline majors and degrees designed to prepare students for purposeful lives and careers.

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northeastern University seeks faculty candidates for tenure-track or tenured appointments at the assistant, associate, or full professor levels across the broad field of Atmospheric Engineering and Science. Appointments will be primarily in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering with potential for joint cross-department appointments in the Departments of Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, and Electrical and Computer Engineering and joint cross- college appointments in the College of Science, Bouvé College of Health Sciences, and the College of Social Sciences and Humanities. Academic rank at the Associate Professor and Full Professor levels will be commensurate with experience and qualifications reflecting a record of demonstrated teaching and scholarly excellence.

About the Opportunity:

These positions (designated as “Impact Engine Fellows”) are the latest in a significant, multi- year expansion in size and scope of environmental research expertise and capabilities, including faculty, facilities, and programs, emphasizing cross-disciplinary themes, and are aligned with the “Impact Engine” iSUPER (Healthier Air and People: Intelligent Solutions to Urban Pollution for Equity and Resilience (https://impactengines.northeastern.edu/ie/isuper/), one of several strategic, university-wide investments in high-impact research. Impact Engines bring together diverse interdisciplinary expertise and experience focused on a global problem and its contexts and perspectives. The tenured/tenure-track faculty line will persist beyond the lifetime of the impact engine, while the impact engine fellow title persists while the impact engine is active (minimum 3 years). All other processes related to faculty recruitment, hiring, tenure and promotion will remain consistent with Northeastern practices.

There are two general areas of interest for the positions, but researchers in any area of Atmospheric Engineering and Science are encouraged to apply:

  1. Multi-scale Climatology. We seek expertise in modeling and observations of regional and microscale climatology in urban areas. Example areas include (but are not limited to) feedbacks between weather/climate extremes and air quality/atmospheric composition, local - regional climate interactions, urban climate informatics, and the effects of urban morphology/canopy changes for climate-smart and resilient urban planning. Experience in improving multi-scale climatology methods using remote sensing, GIS, local climate zone designations, and/or digital synthetic city tools are particularly welcome, but researchers from any relevant background are encouraged to apply.
  2. Community Engagement and Environmental Justice. We seek expertise in community engagement and environmental Justice in the context of air pollution and climate change. Example areas include (but are not limited to) community- based participatory research to integrate research on air pollution, climate change, and pollution exposure and health impact assessment to promote clean air solutions and environmental justice at neighborhood scales. Experience with environmental justice communities to address air pollution disparities, community-scale air quality monitoring and modeling, and exposure assessment, interdisciplinary environmental health, and urban greening policies and interventions are particularly welcome, but researchers from any relevant background are encouraged to apply.

Northeastern University’s Boston campus is located in the heart of the city and benefits from the intellectual and cultural vitality of an urban environment. Northeastern is a top-tier research university and premier experiential education institution, and is a National Science Foundation ADVANCE Institutional Transformation site. A university-wide vision for use-inspired transformative research that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries has resulted in strong cross- departmental ties among the faculty, including joint and affiliate appointments across departments and colleges. The Civil and Environmental Engineering department houses an Impact Engine (Healthier Air and People: Intelligent Solutions to Urban Pollution for Equity and Resilience (iSUPER)) and several major research centers, including the NIH-sponsored program Puerto Rico Testsite for Exploring Contamination Threats (PROTECT) and the NIH-sponsored Center for Research on Early Childhood Exposure and Development in Puerto Rico (CRECE).

Faculty enjoy collaboration with other research centers and clusters across the College of Engineering, Khoury College of Computer Sciences, College of Science, Bouvé College of Health Sciences, College of Arts, Media and Design, D’More-McKim School of Business, and the College of Social Science and Humanities, including the NSF- funded Center for High-Rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN), the DHS-funded Homeland Security Center of Excellence on Awareness and Localization of Explosive-Related Threats (ALERT), the Institute for Experiential Robotics, the Institute for Experiential AI, the Network Science Institute (NSI), the Roux Institute, the Marine Science Center (MSC), the Coastal Sustainability Institute (CSI), the Global Resilience Institute (GRI), the George J.
