Lehigh University invites applications for two tenure-track assistant or associate professor positions from candidates whose research focuses on quantitative methods for making decisions within and about advanced electricity systems. These faculty members will be part of a university research cluster with a specific focus on smart grids consisting of engineering, computer science, economics, and mathematics faculty. Each faculty member will be appointed to a position within an appropriate department - for example, computer science and engineering, electrical and computer enigneering, industrial and systems engineering, or mechanical engineering and mechanics.
The candidates must have a proven research interest in applications related to smart grids, including: power systems and electronics, dynamic control of power and information networks, visualization of electricity networks, real-time systems design, sensor networks, survivable networks, cyber-physical security systems, communications and estimation.
The candidates' research may draw on methodological areas including: signal processing and communications, dynamic control of large-scale interconnected systems, power systems analysis, optimization, high-performance computing, and real-time operating, embedded, and decision systems.
Applicants must possess (1) an earned doctorate and outstanding academic credentials, (2) excellent potential for interdisciplinary research, and (3) the commitment to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses.
More information about the research cluster is available at http://www.lehigh.edu/grid
