Electrical Engineering seeks to fill Tenure Track Faculty position
The Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of South Carolina seeks to fill one tenure-track faculty position, to begin in Fall 2012 or Spring 2013, in the area broadly described as grid-connected power electronics. Candidates should have expertise in some related area such as power electronics, power systems, machines and drives, smart grid technologies, or simulation methods as related to power systems.
Several initiatives make this position attractive to outstanding candidates; the department is a leader in externally-funded research and has internationally recognized programs in power electronics and control systems, and wide bandgap electronics. The NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center for Grid-connected Advanced Power Electronic Systems and participation in the ONR-funded Electric Ship R&D consortium provide outstanding opportunities for engagement in research and can serve as springboards for establishing new independent and collaborative research programs. Throughout the College there exist very strong programs in energy systems, including electrochemical, nuclear, and clean-coal technologies.
Applicants must possess an outstanding capacity for frontier research, teaching of undergraduate and graduate courses, and a strong potential for – and commitment to – establishing their own externally-funded research programs. The PhD program in EE is ranked #7 nationally for faculty productivity, and the department has concomitantly high expectations for applicants. Applicants must have an earned PhD in Electrical Engineering or a closely related field prior to their date of employment. Candidates at all levels will be considered.
To apply, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, attaching your curriculum vitae with a list of your publications, a statement of teaching and research interests, and three references.
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
