Interdisciplinary ENGIE Endowed Chair in Stable, Secure and Resilient Energy Systems

Position Overview:

The Ohio State University is seeking an established scholar to be the inaugural holder of the ENGIE Endowed Chair in Resilient Energy Systems. The successful candidate will have a national and international academic and/or industrial and/or national laboratory research and education record in the broad area of Resilient Energy Systems.  Areas of focus may include integration of new energy sources into a secure, resilient grid, understanding the tradeoffs of energy integration architectures on demand response, and/or transmission and flexible generation in both the technical and economic dimensions. It is expected that the candidate will have a tenured faculty appointment in more than one department spanning various forms of energy (e.g. renewable, biological, agricultural….) and their associated systems (e.g. generation, distribution, storage…).  

This chair is one of a cohort of four ENGIE endowed positions that collectively address challenges in sustainable materials, resilient energy systems, energy and ecosystem policy, and energy and environmental humanities.  These four faculty members will be expected to work collaboratively and to collectively play leadership faculty roles in Ohio State’s Energy Advancement and Innovation Center (https://www.osu.edu/energymanagement/Visionary%20project.pdf), and to partner with the dozens of faculty hired through the university’s recent investments in two allied Discovery Themes: Materials and Manufacturing for Sustainability (https://discovery.osu.edu/materials-and-manufacturing-sustainability) and Sustainable and Resilient Economy (https://discovery.osu.edu/sustainable-and-resilient-economy). 

The ENGIE endowed positions are part of a $150M academic investment in the area of sustainable energy as part of the 50-year partnership between Ohio State and Ohio State Energy Partners, a consortium of ENGIE North America and Axium Infrastructure; see (https://www.osu.edu/energymanagement/index.php?id=67). 

Education and Experience Requirements:

Required: Doctoral degree in a science or engineering field appropriate to the scope of the position.

Desired: Relevant expertise in energy systems policy and management would be preferred.  Professional and/or teaching experience with broad professional abilities.  Distinguished record of scholarship, research, and/or professional practice commensurate with level of appointment.  Experience leading teams in and contributing to diverse learning environments with a demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion.  Demonstrated experience in collaborating both within a departments and across a broader scholarly scope.
