Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer/Lecturer: Structural Engineering
(Ref. ING05/041/0219)

The Department of Civil Engineering at Stellenbosch University offers teaching and research in all disciplines of Civil Engineering. A vacancy exists in a strong teaching and research team in Structural Engineering and Engineering Informatics in an environment with a large number of undergraduate and postgraduate students. The Division is being developed in line with current advances in structural engineering knowledge and by exploring new fields of research relevant to the needs of industry. To do so, a senior candidate (with PhD) is required with an established track record in industry or academia. The incumbent will be expected to teach at undergraduate and postgraduate level, develop new research programmes and facilities, supervise postgraduate research, participate actively in the local structural engineering community and contribute to the profession.

Should suitable applications not be received, then an appointment at lecturer level may be considered. An appointment at this level might be made in support of the current initiatives and responsibilities described above.
