Strategic Faculty Hiring Initiative (SFHI) in Water Systems
Michigan Technological University is continuing its strategic faculty hiring initiative (SFHI) to build upon existing expertise in water at the University. This team of faculty will define and address compelling issues in the natural, engineering, and socioeconomic aspects of water. We are interested in faculty who can contribute to research and teaching on sustainable water systems of global significance. These positions complement four previous SFHI faculty hires and the newly-opened, multi-disciplinary Great Lakes Research Center (GLRC). The GLRC is a 50,000 sq. ft., $25M waterfront facility with state of the art laboratories, marine facilities, and a new super computer facility. Faculty hires from the 2011 initiative were made in the areas of environmental history, water security and governance, hydrology and climate change, and remote sensing of aquatic systems.
In the 2012 Water SFHI, we are particularly interested in Assistant/Associate/Full Professors with research and educational interests within the following broadly defined areas:
Michigan Technological University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer/educational institution. Applications from women and minorities are encouraged.
