Rinker, Sr. School of Construction Management invites applications for two nine-month tenure track faculty positions in Industrialized Construction and Construction Safety and Health, beginning in the fall of 2019.

There are approximately 300 upper-division undergraduates, 70 MS students, and 50 PhD students currently enrolled in the School.
