Faculty Job Opportunities

 

Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics

Assistant or Associate Professor (open rank)
Applications are specifically sought in any of the areas that fall under the umbrella of the Applied Mathematics Program within APAM, with particular emphasis on, but not limited to Applied and Computational Mathematics and its applications in many areas of Applied and Engineering Physics, Earth and Environmental Sciences, and Biological Sciences.
 
 
 

Chemical Engineering

Lecturer in Discipline
Columbia Engineering's Department of Chemical Engineering at Columbia University in New York City invites applications for a full-time lecturer in discipline position. The incumbent will contribute to the academic mission of the department, with particular emphasis on the MS program, including teaching, admissions, recruiting, and advising. The nominal teaching load for lecturers is six courses/year, which will be reduced partially due to the expectation of the time commitment required for administration of and recruiting for the MS program.
 
 
Faculty (open rank)
Applications are specifically sought in any area of chemical engineering research with particular emphasis on, but not limited to "big data" approaches.
 
 
 

Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics

Applications are specifically sought in any of the areas that fall under the umbrella of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, with particular emphasis on, but not limited to: advanced/smart materials, development of sensor and monitoring technologies, infrastructure/systems management, advanced network and systems analysis for estimating infrastructure vulnerabilities, deterioration, resiliency, and energy efficiency, computational mechanics and multi-scale science, stochastic mechanics and uncertainty quantification.
 
 
 

Computer Science

Faculty (all ranks)
All areas of Computer Science with particular emphasis on databases, computational biology, and human-computer interaction
 
 
Lecturer in Discipline
Lecturers in Discipline are officers who meet a programmatic need for instruction in specialized fields. The selected candidate/s will be expected to teach courses on Algorithms and Machine Learning. Courses will be geared towards data science, at the graduate level, and the candidate/s will be responsible for advising students in Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering Certification of Professional Achievement program.
 
 
 

Earth and Environmental Engineering

Stanley-Thompson Chair in Chemical Metallurgy
The professorship was established for the recognition of scholarship in chemical metallurgy and the opportunity to advance research in the processes for extraction and refining of metals as well as the chemical aspects of environmental behavior of metals, namely corrosion, oxidation, and other chemical interactions of metals and alloys with various media. The selection committee will consider candidates with backgrounds and interests in fields that address frontier research in novel technologies for the production of metals that could minimize damage to the environment, or by preventing the reverse process of corrosion to the metals, thereby decreasing the environmental costs of the dust-to-dust life cycle.
 
 
Henry Krumb Chair in Mining Engineering
The professorship was established for the recognition of scholarship in mining engineering and minerals processing and for the opportunity to advance knowledge of both land and sea mining and to provide leadership within the Earth and Environmental Engineering Department and the future direction of its mining program. The selection committee will consider candidates with backgrounds and interests in forward-looking fields that address frontier research in mining including but not limited to, rock mechanics, hydraulic fracturing and its environmental impact, robotics for mining of both land and deep sea, extraction and processing of minerals or fuels, storage of nuclear wastes, systems analysis, and other related fields.
 
 
Faculty (Associate Professor or Assistant Professor)
Applications are specifically sought in any of the areas that fall under the umbrella of Earth and environmental engineering, with particular emphasis on, but not limited to: the sustainability of supply and use of water, energy, materials, and the development of green processing of minerals, fuels, the production, recycling, corrosion protection of metals, design of heterogeneous catalysts for energy and environmental needs, and other related fields.
 
 
 

Electrical Engineering

Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor
Applications are specifically sought in any of the areas that fall under the umbrella of electrical engineering, with particular emphasis on, but not limited to: energy, cyber-physical systems, and applications of EE in biological engineering. Electrical Engineering is closely involved in Columbia's new Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering (http://idse.columbia.edu/), and synergy with this initiative is an advantage.
 
 
 

Industrial Engineering and Operations Research

Faculty (open rank)
Applications are sought broadly in all areas of operations research with a special emphasis on Data Analytics, Financial Engineering, and research areas that are synergistic with the Institute for Data Science and Engineering (http://idse.columbia.edu). The Institute has centers in smart cities, cyber-security, health analytics, financial analytics, new media, and foundational research.
 
 
 

Mechanical Engineering

Tenure or Tenure-Track Faculty
Applications are specifically sought in any of the areas that fall under the umbrella of mechanical engineering, with particular emphasis on robotics with specialization in, but not limited to, computational tools to design novel robots, surgical and image-guided intervention, assistance, rehabilitation, biomimetics, human-robot interaction and haptics.
 
 
Adjunct Faculty
Applications are specifically sought in the areas of automotive engineering, aerospace engineering, and energy.
 
 
 

Neuro-Z: Engineering and Neural Science Innovation

Faculty (open rank)—Neuro-Engineering
Successful candidates will be expected to establish world-class independent research programs that will cross the boundaries between neuroscience and applied science and engineering. Areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, the development of novel imaging technologies, electrical recording strategies, genetic approaches, contrast agent development, robotics, machine learning, data analysis, and computational approaches.
