Building Resilient and Sustainable Communities

The Norm Asbjornson College of Engineering at Montana State University is advancing a hiring initiative to increase diversity and fill several tenure track faculty positions in the college focused on building resilient and sustainable communities.  Faculty hired as part of this cohort will be focused on developing engineered solutions to help communities prepare for threats, evaluate risks, and adapt to and recover from natural and human caused disruptions without compromising future generations.  This initiative will build on current faculty research expertise in advanced composite materials, biofilms, biomaterials in manufacturing and construction, biological systems in industry and the environment, biomedical engineering, sustainable energy and power systems, sensors and optics, communication, data and information systems, water resources and water quality, sub-zero systems and processes, cybersecurity, machine learning and artificial intelligence.  The faculty cohort will strengthen current capabilities and add new areas of relevant research.  With this year’s hires the initiative will add faculty to 2 departments departments: Civil Engineering, and the Gianforte School of Computing.  

The initiative is especially interested in candidates who will contribute to the resilience and sustainability of the NACOE community through their experience, research, and service.  MSU is a public land grant institution committed to building an excellent educational environment that is broadly accessible to those from diverse backgrounds.  Applicants may include information about how they will contribute to this objective.
