Associate/Full Professors of Energy Systems and Policy (2 positions)
Location: Binghamton, New York
Type: Full Time
2 openings available.
Internal Number: 3453 / 3456
The Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering (SSIE) in the Thomas J. Watson College of Engineering and Applied Science at Binghamton University (The State University of New York at Binghamton) invites applications for two (2) faculty members, at the Associate or Full Professor level, starting in Spring or Fall 2024. The positions involve establishing theoretical and applied research in emerging areas in industrial and systems engineering as well as teaching at all levels, from undergraduate courses to advanced graduate courses. We are interested in faculty candidates with expertise in 1) Energy Storage and 2) Energy Systems and Policy. However, qualified applicants in other emerging areas of industrial and systems engineering, such as autonomous systems, advanced/smart manufacturing, biomanufacturing, cyber-physical systems, and machine learning and artificial intelligence, healthcare systems engineering, may be considered.
The Associate/Full Professor - Energy Storage position will explore recent developments in energy storage and apply knowledge of systems modeling, operations optimization, integration with renewables, techno-economic analysis, sustainable materials, and recycling technologies to encourage economic growth and advance the adoption of clean and efficient energy solutions to build a more resilient and sustainable future.
The Associate/Full Professor - Energy Systems and Policy position will explore recent developments in evolving electricity markets. The outcomes of their research will help inform the design and implementation of robust energy systems, ensuring a reliable and sustainable energy supply, even amidst the escalating challenges posed by climate change. Furthermore, their work will drive advancements in technological innovation, behavior change strategies, and policy frameworks, facilitating the transition towards sustainable, electrified, and energy-efficient residential systems with shared aims of mitigating carbon emissions while enhancing energy affordability, occupant comfort, and overall residential system resilience.
The Watson College is dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment. Potential applicants who share this goal, and especially underrepresented minorities, women and persons with disabilities, are strongly encouraged to apply. The successful candidate for this position will be expected to help increase the number of women, underrepresented minorities and persons with disabilities, as well as help increase external funding to support diverse populations. Prospective candidates are encouraged to visit the department website (http://www.ssie.binghamton.edu) for more details.
Attracting $8.5-12 million annually in research funding from 2020-2023, our established faculty works collaboratively with over 30 sponsors from industry and federal agencies. At this level of research productivity, the SSIE Department is also ranked the highest on-campus in research expenditures. Our faculty members work collaboratively with over 30 sponsors from industry and federal agencies. With an excellent and growing academic reputation, the SSIE Department is internationally renowned in the areas of electronics manufacturing/packaging and flexible electronics. Another area of substantial growth is health systems, and our faculty works with several major healthcare organizations across the nation and abroad. Other significant areas of growth include, but are not limited to, additive manufacturing and 3D printing, advanced data science/analytics, applied operations research/optimization, complex systems science and modeling, and energy systems. A more extensive list of active research areas within the department can be found here. The department is continuing significant expansion, including this position.
The department currently has thirty-three (33) faculty members and offers a BS degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), MS degrees in Systems Science (SS), Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), and Healthcare Systems Engineering (HSE), and PhD degrees in Systems Science (SS) and Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE). SSIE also offers a cutting-edge executive health systems program in Manhattan. With about 250 undergraduate, 200 masters, and 200 doctoral students, the department is growing in numbers and in reputation.
The successful candidate will have a tenure berth in Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering.
The candidate must have a doctoral degree in Industrial Engineering or a closely related field. Candidates with relevant research expertise with mechanical or electrical engineering backgrounds will also be considered. The candidate should also have good leadership skills and should have an excellent record of scholarly publications. Teaching experience is also preferred.
The candidate is expected to have high potential to initiate and sustain an externally funded multi-disciplinary research program and to take a major role in advancing the research and academic mission of the SSIE Department.
