New Faculty Positions in CEE

Two faculty positions are available in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan.| Short Read

Faculty Position in Next Generation Transportation Systems

This is a critically important research and teaching area as national and global challenges in transportation mobility, safety, and sustainability emerge. It is also a preeminent theme for the University of Michigan and the State of Michigan. All ranks will be considered for the position. Applicants shall have a doctorate in engineering or related field of study, and those applying at the Associate Professor or Professor levels must have a well-established academic record, including scholarly publications and an externally funded research program. The intellectual depth, innovation and promise of the candidates are of higher priority than their specific research areas.

Faculty Position in Resilient and Sustainable Infrastructure Systems

The University of Michigan’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering invites applications for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position in the general area of Resilient and Sustainable Infrastructure Systems. The vision of the department is that the next generation of civil infrastructure systems, enabled by smart sensing capabilities, will require innovation in civil materials and simulation of these systems using computational and experimental techniques. As such, the position stems from the department’s strategic plan to build strength and add expertise at the intersection of structural engineering and civil infrastructure materials and/or structural mechanics. All ranks will be considered for the position.

The electrons absorb laser light and set up “momentum combs” (the hills) spanning the energy valleys within the material (the red line). When the electrons have an energy allowed by the quantum mechanical structure of the material—and also touch the edge of the valley—they emit light. This is why some teeth of the combs are bright and some are dark. By measuring the emitted light and precisely locating its source, the research mapped out the energy valleys in a 2D crystal of tungsten diselenide.

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors. | Medium Read
