About Clemson

One of the country’s most selective public research universities, Clemson University serves a uniquely driven and highly accomplished student body.

Ranked consistently as one of the best national public university by U.S.News & World Report, Clemson is a science- and engineering-oriented college dedicated to teaching, research and service. Founded in 1889, we remain committed both to world-class research and a high quality of life. In fact, 91 percent of our seniors say they’d pick Clemson again if they had it to do over.

Clemson’s retention and graduation rates rank among the highest in the country for public universities. We’ve been named among the best values by Kiplinger magazine in 2013, and SmartMoney in 2012 ranked us No. 7 in student return on investment.

Our beautiful college campus sits on 1,400 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, along the shores of Hartwell Lake. But we also have research facilities and economic development hubs throughout the state of South Carolina — in Greenville, Greenwood, Columbia and Charleston.

Bob Benmosche Endowed Professor in Risk Engineering and System Analytics

The Glenn Department of Civil Engineering invites applications for the Bob Benmosche Endowed Professorship in Risk Engineering and System Analytics at the Associate/Full Professor ranks. We are seeking candidates with an exemplary record of scholarly work and a research vision that promotes collaboration within the Department and School, between regional/national industry partners, and a broad set of stakeholders, including federal and state agencies. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a commitment to addressing societal grant challenges and conduct interdisciplinary research efforts in risk-related engineering to improve the understanding of risks linked to natural and man-made phenomena, mitigate their effects and better prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in research areas such as: Foundational Principles of Risk Engineering and Management, Risk Management Analytics and Risk Mitigation, Enterprise Risk and Decision Making, Methods for Estimation and Calculating Engineering Risk Probability, Financial Risk Engineering, Property Risk Engineering, and Safety and Risk Engineering. Exceptional candidates will be considered at the level of Full Professor.

Clemson University recently created the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences (SCEEES) that houses the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering and the Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences (EEES). SCEEES is home to nearly 60 faculty, 200 graduate students, and 575 undergraduates. The School has established and growing expertise in the following four thematic areas: Smart City Service (managing risk and security); Resilient Communities (natural and technological disasters mitigation); Engineering the Surface and Subsurface (dry land, clean water, and water security); and Engineering the Earth’s Ecosphere (air quality, greenhouse gas removal, managing solid and nuclear wastes). Further, the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering has recently completed a 6-year grant from the National Science Foundation to revolution our engineering department. This grant has resulted in deeper connections between students, faculty and industry, as well as engagement with community on impactful projects, and created significant improvements in student professional development outcomes.

Clemson University is South Carolina’s public land-grant University. As a Carnegie R1 Institution, the University has excellent research resources, including the Palmetto Cluster, a top 500 global high-performance computing cluster. The College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences encourages impactful interdisciplinary work, and this culture of collaboration includes joint appointments in other departments and schools on campus as well as extensive work with several industry partners. The University, College, and Department are committed to building an inclusive community of scholars dedicated to working and teaching in a multicultural environment. Clemson University recognizes that many candidates for faculty positions have dual career needs. The Dual Career Program in the Office of the Provost provides support when considering employment opportunities with the University and in the surrounding community.
