Assistant or Associate Professor

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. The faculty members will be part of a university research cluster consisting of a multi-disciplinary team of engineering, computer science, economics, and mathematics faculty. The cluster has a specific focus on smart grids that is part of a broader research agenda on "Integrated Networks for Electrical, Information, and Financial Flows." The faculty members will be appointed to positions within an appropriate department - for example, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics.

The candidates must have a proven research interest in applications related to smart grids, including, but not limited to, topics such as: survivable networks, modeling and visualization of electricity networks, real-time operating, embedded systems design, real-time scheduling and resource management, real time computational systems, sensor networks, data analytics, cyber-physical security systems, and dynamic control of large-scale power and information networks.

Applicants must possess (1) an earned doctorate, outstanding academic credentials, and a demonstrated record of success, (2) excellent potential for interdisciplinary research and scholarship, and (3) the ability and commitment to teach courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels. The positions will require developing externally funded research programs, supervising M.S. and Ph.D. students, and contributing to the smart grid cluster of Lehigh University through innovative research and teaching.
