Moncrief Endowed Faculty Positions Program

The Moncrief Endowed Faculty Positions Program, has the mission to recruit up to nine outstanding faculty (faculty at the associate professor rank or higher) dedicated to research and academic work in computational engineering and sciences. Holders of these positions will be appointed in one or more academic departments in the Cockrell School of Engineering, the College of Natural Sciences, or the Jackson School of Geosciences.

The Moncrief Endowed Faculty Positions Program began recruiting new faculty in the spring of 2009. Current search areas include the following:

  • Computational geophyisical fluid dynamics, with particular interest in ocean modeling
  • Structural bioinformatics, the computational modeling of structure and function of biological macromolecules
  • Predictive science and uncertainty quantification in computational science and engineering

This program targets the world's most outstanding scholars that have an exceptional track record in interdisciplinary research at the intersection of advanced mathematical and computational techniques and target scientific and engineering problems.

Currently there is no formal deadline for submitting applications.

The formal announcement for applications including submission instructions is available through the side bar navigation links.
