Rank and salary are dependent on qualifications. All qualified candidates will be considered, but preference will be given to those who have a PhD in engineering or a PE and experience in the field.

Applications will be reviewed beginning March 7. All applications will be reviewed until the position is filled. Candidates from under-represented minorities are encouraged to apply.
