Candidates for this position must have a demonstrated deep knowledge about energy systems engineering and, at the same time, be fluent in how policies, institutions and corporate decision-making affect behavior across all scales - ranging from individual household and firm level to the macroeconomic level. Research focused on strategies for deep decarbonization of the energy system—from political, economic, engineering, and other relevant perspectives—is of particular interest. These abilities should be demonstrated via publications and research that include both quantitative engineering analysis such as operations research and/or energy systems engineering, coupled with policy and economic elements.

The successful candidate will be expected to build a research program grounded in both GPS and JSOE, and teach University students within the existing undergraduate energy-focused engineering courses, and build out MS level and PhD-level energy-focused courses in both Schools.

Job Requirements
