The Precourt Institute for Energy and the Department of Management Science and Engineering invite applications for an assistant professor, tenure track position in Energy Systems. The faculty member would conduct research and teach in energy systems viewed as a whole, including technologies and human choices shaping energy production and consumption. We are searching for a new faculty member with the following characteristics:
- An interest in the workings and future evolution of the US and/or international energy system;
- An understanding of technologies, institutions, and/or policies underlying the energy system;
- Methodological grounding in areas such as optimization and control, applied economics, large scale social network analysis, statistics, stochastic modeling, dynamic modeling, energy system modeling, or other quantitative methods;
- Demonstrated research success in modeling or analysis, as pertains to energy systems;
- A commitment to research and teaching.
Energy Systems research could include technological trends (e.g., advances in information and communication technology, enabled smart grids, microgrids, novel sensing and measurement abilities) and/or socioeconomic issues (e.g., human decisions in demand response programs, incentives for adoption of renewables or energy efficient appliances, smart-device control of home and business energy consumption, behavioral change, institutional barriers).
An earned Ph.D., evidence of the ability to pursue a program of research, and a strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching are required.
