The department collaborates closely with other schools and centers of the university engaged with public health, urban informatics and planning, etc.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, a current CV along with research and teaching statements, copies of three representative publications, and the names of at least three professional references. Recent teaching evaluations should be provided if applicable. Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled.

Senior candidates wishing to explore the opportunity are encouraged to contact the department Chair, Prof. Magued Iskander 

IDC Foundation Chair in Design & Construction NYU Tandon School of Engineering invites nominations and applications for an Industry Professor to hold the IDC Design and Construction Chair in the Department of Civil & Urban Engineering. The position is made possible by an endowment provided by the IDC Foundation, which was established by the Institute of Design and Construction in Brooklyn, New York. The position is not tenured/tenure track and will involve teaching, research administration, and service. The IDC Chair is expected to lead NYU’s efforts to establish the IDC Foundation Initiative for Construction Innovation (ICI). ICI is envisioned as an industry-supported center that conducts impactful, world-class research, educational, and outreach activities, guided by the active involvement of leaders from the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) community.
