The University of California, San Diego is committed to building an excellent, diverse and inclusive faculty, staff and student body (

Candidates for this position must have a demonstrated deep knowledge about energy systems engineering and, at the same time, be fluent in how policies, institutions and corporate decision-making affect behavior across all scales – ranging from individual household and firm level to the macroeconomic level. Research focused on strategies for deep decarbonization of the energy system—from political, economic, engineering, and other relevant perspectives—is of particular interest. These abilities should be demonstrated via publications and research that include both quantitative engineering analysis such as operations research and/or energy systems engineering, coupled with policy and economic elements.

The successful candidate will be expected to build a research program grounded in both GPS and JSOE, and teach University students within the existing undergraduate energy-focused engineering courses, and build out MS level and PhD-level energy-focused courses in both Schools.

A Ph.D. degree or advancement to candidacy at the time of application is required in the area of Energy Systems Engineering, Engineering and Public Policy or Relevant Social Sciences, or a related discipline. We especially welcome candidates who have contributed to programs that increase the access and success of underrepresented students or faculty in engineering and who are committed to, and experienced in, building an excellent and diverse academic environment.

Rank of position is at the Assistant Professor level.

Salary: Level of appointment will be commensurate with qualifications; salary based on UC pay scales and market conditions.

Closing Date: Applications received by January 17, 2019 will be given full consideration. The position will remain open until filled.
