The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) and the Del E. Web School of Construction (DEWSC) of the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE) seeks applicants for a Professor of Practice in heavy civil construction, beginning in the Fall 2020 semester. The position is aimed at advancing the construction management program while increasing the reputation, stature, and student enrollment in the area of heavy civil construction.

Faculty members are expected to engage in teaching undergraduate and/or graduate courses in construction, mentoring students, and creating and maintaining relationships with the heavy civil construction industry.
