Assistant Professor, Energy and Civil Infrastructure Engineering
The University of Central Florida recently established an interdisciplinary cluster approach to strengthen its academic offerings and research mission. In support of this effort, we are hiring faculty in the broad interdisciplinary area of sustainable energy systems. More details can be found at our cluster website, http://www.ucf.edu/research/RISES.
We are interested in candidates who can integrate energy and civil infrastructure engineering, failure analysis, advanced sensing, signal processing, and/or data analysis technologies with expertise in the following areas: analysis, design, development and deployment of distributed renewable energy assets, energy efficient buildings, and civil/structural systems (PV solar systems in particular) within the context of smart cities. The successful applicant must demonstrate a strong commitment to interdisciplinary and collaborative research and publication, have demonstrated an ability to perform high-impact and high-demand research, and develop a program that will lead to strong extramurally-funded research and national/international recognition.
Faculty in this interdisciplinary position will be expected to strengthen both their tenure home departments as well as the RISES cluster. Potential tenure homes include the College of Engineering and Computer Science, the College of Optics and Photonics, the College of Health and Public Affairs, and the College of Business Administration. All applicants should have a strong commitment to academic activities including teaching, scholarly publications, and sponsored research. The new faculty member will have a unique opportunity to work with this interdisciplinary team, to foster intellectual breadth, and to facilitate integrative capacity to strengthen the success of the cluster. UCF offers a competitive salary and start-up package in addition to generous benefits. Individual and interdisciplinary infrastructure and startup are expected for these positions as well.
UCF is one of the nation’s largest universities with a diverse student body of more than 64,000 students and quality research and educational programs. In particular, UCF’s Electrical Engineering department is ranked 30th among all ECE departments in U.S. public universities, and the CECE Department is ranked 75th among U.S. public universities by US News and World Report.
