Academic Employee: Research Assistant or Associate Professor Position No. 00075310posted September 6, 2019

The Center for Intelligent Infrastructure at Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly University of Missouri-Rolla) seeks to expand its research capabilities in autonomous inspection and maintenance of civil infrastructure (e.g., bridges and tunnels) by inviting applications for a non-tenure research faculty position, commencing around October 15, 2019. The appointment is anticipated to be made at the research assistant or associate professor level, depending on candidates’ background and experience. The initial appointment will be at the 75% full-time employment (up to $72,000/year). The successful candidate will seek external funds to pay additional 25% work hours. The candidate is required to work in laboratory and field environments, doing heavy lifting and travelling long distance to job sites for a few months per year.

The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate the potential to establish and grow a strong research program and reach a high level of scholarly excellence. Candidates must have an earned undergraduate degree in electrical/mechanical/computer/systems engineering from an ABET/EAC accredited program or equivalent, and an earned Ph.D. in the same engineering discipline or a closely related field. Superior communication and interpersonal skills, leadership capabilities, the ability to engage in collaborative and interdisciplinary research, and the ability to motivate and inspire undergraduate and graduate students are also required attributes. Hands-on experience in system integration and robotics research experience in platform mechanics, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) navigation and guidance in GPS blind environment, aerodynamic stability, satellite communication system, and wireless data transmission and certification, are required. Licensure as a UAV pilot is required or must be attained within 6 months of appointment.

The Center for Intelligent Infrastructure has recently been established at Missouri University of Science and Technology in recognition of nation’s growing interests in infrastructure research using advanced technologies such as robots, multi-robot collaboration and optimization for inspection, remote sensing, nondestructive evaluation, structural health monitoring, data analytics, and asset management. The Center currently has expertise in civil engineering, computer science, economics, electrical engineering, engineering management and systems engineering, power engineering, and multi-hazards engineering (earthquake, tornado, flood, etc.). Its current research programs are focused on the preservation, safety, resilience, and sustainability of transportation infrastructure systems. The Center is envisioned to extend its autonomous inspection and maintenance capabilities from bridges to other infrastructures such as dams, building, levees, offshore platforms, pipelines, power plants, roads, transmission towers, and tunnels. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to collaborate with interdisciplinary research teams across campus, including the Tier I University Transportation Center (see http://inspire-utc.mst.edu/), Mid- America Transportation Center (see https://matc.unl.edu/), the National Center for Transportation Infrastructure Durability and Life-Extension, the Center for Infrastructure Engineering Studies (see http://cies.mst.edu/), the Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold Formed Steel Structures (see http://ccfssonline.org/), the Intelligent Systems Center (see http://isc.mst.edu/), and the Materials Research Center (see http://mrc.mst.edu/). The Center and the University offer a lively and dynamic, international research and education environment.

Review of applications will begin on September 15, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates should electronically submit an application consisting of a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests and goals, and complete contact information for five references to the Missouri University of Science and Technology’s Human Resource Office using the following link: https://hr.mst.edu/careers/. All submitted application materials must have the position reference number, 00075310, in order to be processed. Acceptable electronic formats that can be used for email attachments include PDF and Word; hardcopy application materials will not be accepted.

Missouri University of Science and Technology participates in E-Verify. For more information on E-Verify, please contact DHS at 1-888-464-4218. The final candidate is required to provide official transcript(s) for any college degree(s) listed in application materials submitted. Copies of transcript(s) must be provided prior to the start of employment. In addition, the final candidate may be required to verify other credentials listed in application materials. Failure to provide official transcript(s) or other required verification may result in the withdrawal of the job offer. Females, minorities, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply. Missouri University of Science and Technology is an affirmative action / equal opportunity employer and is responsive to the needs of dual-career couples.
