THE UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA
SCHOOL OF CIVIL ENGINEERING AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE/SCHOOL OF CHEMICAL, BIOLOGICAL AND MATERIALS ENGINEERING
FACULTY POSITION OPENING
The University of Oklahoma (OU) School of Civil Engineering and Environmental Science (CEES) and School of Chemical, Biological and Materials Engineering (CBME) in the Gallogly College of Engineering (GCoE) are looking to fill a joint faculty position in the area of produced waters/water resources. The position aligns with the GCoE’s strategic priorities of doubling research productivity in the strategic growth areas of energy (including management of produced waters from petroleum production) and water (including treatment and reclamation of produced waters). This new specialty area will strengthen OU’s water portfolio in an area of critical need and local and national significance at the energy-water nexus. Specifically, produced waters from the oil extraction industry pose a problem that is disrupting production, given that the traditional method of disposal via deep well injection is inducing earthquakes. The large amount of freshwater currently required for oil production also greatly taxes limited water resources.
An earned Ph.D. is required, with at least one degree in civil engineering, environmental science or engineering, chemical engineering, or another closely related discipline.The successful candidate is expected to develop and maintain a sponsored research program related to produced waters. Potential research areas include:
• Development of cost-effective water treatment and desalination technologies
• Risk assessment and water quality targets to protect environmental and public health
• Novel uses of treated waters
Highly qualified individuals with demonstrated expertise in other innovative areas related to produced waters/water resources, and/or other research challenges at the energy-water nexus, will receive full consideration. Applicants at all levels will be considered.
Applicants should upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests and the contact information for three references to the following site: https://apply.interfolio.com/66967.Initial screening of applications will begin Nov. 1, 2019 and will continue until a candidate is selected and recommended for appointment.
