There are several resources for employment on campus as well as external fire protection jobs:

Staff Positions:

No open positions at this time.

Faculty Positions:

Assistant/Associate Professor, Tenure-Track

The Department of Fire Protection Engineering (FPE) at the University of Maryland is a unique academic unit dedicated to the education of fire safety engineers/researchers as well as to the advancement of fire science.  The department offers an exciting and rewarding opportunity in fire protection engineering education and research. Fire safety is an interdisciplinary field that includes the dynamics of fire and smoke (in structures and in the wildland), the design of fire-safe systems (materials, products, processes, buildings, communities, etc), people’s behavior in fire and the design of safe egress solutions, the environmental impact of fire, fire hazard and risk analysis, fire investigation, and the role of regulations and public policy.  Fire research includes, but is not limited to, the fundamentals of combustion, material flammability, fire suppression, wildland fires and wildland-urban-interface fires, process safety and explosions, structural resistance to fire, human response and behavior in fire, resilience of buildings and communities, etc.

Applications are invited for a tenure-track position at the Assistant/Associate Professor level (PDF icondownload a PDF flyer here).  Applicants should have a doctorate in a relevant discipline. Experience in teaching and a background in fire protection engineering are desirable. We are looking for a candidate who is excited to lead and work with undergraduate and graduate students. The position requires teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and establishing a successful, externally funded research program. Candidates with computational and/or experimental experience are encouraged to apply. 

The department offers the only ABET accredited B.S. Degree in Fire Protection Engineering in the USA. The graduate program offers a research M.S. degree and a professional Master of Engineering degree. The FPE department has an active Ph.D. program that is administered through collaborations with other departments in the Clark School of Engineering.  The department is a small-size academic unit that prides itself on having highly collaborative interactions between faculty, staff and students.  It also features state-of-the-art experimental and computational facilities.  Fire Protection Engineering is one of eight departments in the A. James Clark School of Engineering at UMD, College Park.  The school of engineering has approximately 220 full-time tenure-track faculty members and is ranked in the Top 20 in the country (U.S. News and World Report).  College Park is located in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.  The proximity of the campus to the nation’s capital allows the development of synergistic opportunities and strong research ties with federal government research laboratories, corporations, and start-ups. The University is committed to attracting and retaining outstanding and diverse faculty and staff who will enhance our stature of preeminence in the three missions of teaching, scholarship, and full engagement in our community, the state of Maryland, and the world.  

A cover letter, curriculum vitae (CV), statements of research and teaching interests, and names of at least three professional references should be submitted electronically to https://ejobs.umd.edu/postings/82767. Women and minorities are particularly encouraged to apply, and candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to working with diverse populations through research, teaching and mentoring are encouraged to identify their experience in these areas. For best consideration, interested applicants should apply by July 15, 2021; review of applications will begin on July 1, 2021 and will continue on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

Questions about the positions can be directed to the Chair of the Search Committee, Arnaud Trouvé (atrouve@umd.edu).

The University of Maryland, College Park, actively subscribes to a policy of equal employment opportunity, and will not discriminate against any employee or applicant because of race, age, sex, color, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, religion, ancestry or national origin, marital status, genetic information, or political affiliation. Minorities and women are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Engineering Career Services helps students find co-op, internship, and summer engineering positions. The office provides resume critiques, campus interviews, career fairs, and job search workshops for students. Students participating in co-op and/or internship programs gain professional work experience, earn a competitive salary, make invaluable networking contacts, integrate classroom theory into practice, and confirm their career choices. In conjunction with the campus Career Center, Engineering Career Services also assist students in finding post-graduate positions. Alumni of the Fire Protection Engineering Department are encouraged to also visit the Job Listings section to find postings for 'experienced' position announcements as they move forward in their careers.
