Energy Systems Tenure-Track Assistant/ Associate/ Full Professor Position

In order to link ongoing technical work with broader economic, policy, and environmental considerations, we seek an expert in energy systems engineering with in-depth knowledge in at least one of the following areas: electric power, transportation, or renewable energy. The electric power and transportation sectors are increasingly enhanced with power electronics, energy storage, and distributed control algorithms, particularly as distributed generation becomes prevalent with the increased penetration of renewable energy and the growing interdependence between the electric power and transportation systems. Desired abilities include the use of advanced mathematical methods to model physical systems and to develop techniques for system optimization and control.

This new faculty member is expected to engage in one or more of the following research and education activities:
  • develop methods and algorithms for simulating large-scale dynamic systems;
  • model economic, policy and technical interactions in dynamic systems under uncertainties applied to electricity markets;
  • develop and analyze market designs and rate structures in the smart grid environment and market based operations;
  • design electricity markets with strong interactions between energy providers, system operators, and customers;
  • design monitoring as well as control and pricing algorithms for electric power systems with distributed generation;
  • analyze critical infrastructures related to energy and evaluate interdependencies;
  • develop controls and methods for normal and emergency control of electric power systems.

Minimum requirements include a Ph.D. from an accredited institution in a field relevant to the sustainable energy systems and policy (SESP) theme. For additional information about the SESP theme, please see

The position is open to any rank at the time of appointment. Applicants at the senior level should have demonstrated excellence in research and a sustained record of collaborative work. All candidates, regardless of rank, should have a strong capacity to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, including the capacity to mentor doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows. Inclusiveness and diversity are academic imperatives and thus University goals. The University is particularly interested in candidates with experience in working with students from diverse backgrounds and who have a demonstrated commitment to improving access to higher education for students from underrepresented groups.

Visual Narrative Tenure-Track Assistant/ Associate/ Full Professor Position

As part of the Chancellor's Faculty Excellence Program, NC State University seeks expressions of interest and nominations for two open-rank tenure-track faculty members in computer science and electrical and computer engineering to join the Visual Narrative cluster. We seek innovative and transformative academic leaders whose scholarship will advance NC State's position as one of the premier universities of its kind. Ideal candidates will be visionary, innovative researchers with passions and interests in the following areas:

  • Investigating Computer Vision and Image Sciences with continued or potential impact in approaches to understand a range of narrative-centered image media. An example of strong profile match includes a vigorous program in research and teaching in machine learning with an emphasis on modeling and optimization techniques for visual and imaging applications;
  • Building the science of computer games, emphasizing applications relevant to the generation or analysis of game play supporting the broad context of narrative and its visual presentation.

The successful senior candidates will be recognized as a pioneering leader in the development of new approaches in these areas with innovative applications. The successful junior candidates will demonstrate strong potential for such leadership. All successful candidates should show a willingness to engage in collaborative efforts with social scientists, humanists and artists. Strong collaborations with other faculty within the cluster and NCSU's existing efforts are expected.
