DIVISION OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND ECOLOGICAL
The Division of Environmental and Ecological Engineering (EEE) at Purdue University invites applications for three
tenure/tenure-track openings for exceptional faculty candidates at the Assistant/Associate Professor level.
Successful candidates will receive a joint appointment in EEE and in one of the Schools of Engineering (tenure
home). Successful candidates must hold an earned Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral level degree(s) in engineering or a
related discipline, and should have a distinguished academic record. Candidates are expected to demonstrate
strong commitment to excellence in education, teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels
based on the needs of EEE and the partnering School, and establish a strong, externally funded research program.
A strong interest in interdisciplinary research and education is required. Candidates with experience working with
diverse groups of students, faculty, and staff and the ability to contribute to an inclusive climate are particularly
EEE seeks to characterize the impact of natural and engineered systems on the environment, and establish
engineered systems that function under ecological and socio-economic constraints. EEE research and education
addresses the prevention, control, and treatment of waste streams, and the design and management of resilient
engineered systems that can exist in harmony with human and natural systems. Areas of interest include, but are
not limited to: industrial ecology, sustainable manufacturing and chemical/materials synthesis, eco-design, design
for recycling, dematerialization, green materials, environmental-industrial system dynamics and resilience, coupled
engineered-human-natural systems, urban and restoration ecology, sustainability science and engineering, green
supply chains, life cycle engineering, indoor and outdoor air quality, air pollution control, value recovery from
waste streams, solid waste treatment, and greening engineered systems.
EEE engages more than 40 faculty members within the College of Engineering and across the campus. An
undergraduate degree program in EEE has been established, and a graduate program is in development. Further
information about EEE, including details on the current faculty and their research interests, is available at
