The Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management (CAECM) Department at Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) invites nominations and applications for an open full-time instructor position beginning September 1, 2022 . The department seeks an individual who will complement and strengthen our outstanding faculty. The preferred candidate will be willing and able to teach fundamental course work in other specialties as necessary (e.g., Statics, Mechanics of Materials, Structural Analysis, and related courses.)

MSOE, a highly ranked undergraduate and master's level institution of learning founded in 1903, is in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The institution serves nearly 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of engineering, mathematics, business, nursing and communications. The university prides itself on having more laboratories than classrooms on campus, showing our commitment to experiential learning. University faculty are primarily evaluated on their teaching excellence.

The CAECM Department maintains a strong student-centered focus and is committed to educating future leaders in engineering design and construction. The Department currently serves more than 400 undergraduate and graduate students, has 15 full-time faculty members of various rank and expertise, and has experienced growth with the addition of the recently accredited Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree program. Degree offerings include Bachelor and Master of Science in Architectural Engineering, Bachelor and Master of Science in Civil Engineering, and Bachelor of Science in Construction Management. Several specializations are available, including structural engineering, mechanical and electrical systems engineering for buildings, environmental and water resources engineering, transportation engineering and construction management. In addition, the department collaborates with other departments on campus to provide broad educational opportunities for all students.

Under the direction of the CAECM Department Chair, the Civil Engineering Instructor will teach architectural engineering and civil engineering undergraduate and masters students, with a primary teaching emphasis in the structural engineering area, (Statics, Mechanics of Materials, Structural Analysis, and related courses.) The ability to teach general civil engineering courses, such as surveying, in a secondary capacity, is a plus. The Instructor position is a full-time appointment, for an appointment period of one year, with the opportunity for annual contract renewal. This position is available starting in Fall 2022.
