Tenure-line Position in Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford University

The Department of Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford University invites applications for a tenure-line faculty appointment. The position is at the assistant professor level. It is desired that the selected candidate be able to start no later than Autumn 2017. For more information about the Energy Resources Engineering Department, see the Stanford ERE web page at

The Department of Energy Resources Engineering focuses on a wide range of activities related to the recovery of the Earth’s energy resources (e.g., hydrocarbons, geothermal, and other renewables). The department has core areas of expertise in computational (simulation and optimization) and experimental approaches to energy production. ERE offers degrees in both energy resources engineering (B.S., M.S., Ph.D.) and petroleum engineering (M.S., Ph.D.).

We seek scholars with a Ph.D. in an engineering or computational discipline who possess novel and innovative research capabilities in energy transitions engineering, renewable energy integration and optimization, and renewable resource planning and optimization. We envision intellectual engagement in one or more of the following areas:

  • Computational approaches for the design and dispatch of renewable or hybrid renewable-fossil energy systems
  • Optimal control of renewable- and flexible-power systems operation
  • Energy storage system design, including optimization, valuation, and novel technology evaluation
  • Multi-criteria optimization focusing on challenges associated with novel energy technologies including energy generation, land use, water consumption, materials abundance, and scalability
  • Analysis of technological change, including rigorous modeling of innovation, quantification of co-benefits, and modeling technology scale-up and deployment
We will begin reviewing applications on October 1, 2016 and will continue until a suitable candidate is identified. To apply, please submit the following application materials: cover letter, curriculum vitae with a complete list of publications, a statement outlining research and teaching interests, the names of three references including e-mail addresses, and copies of up to five selected papers published in refereed journals over the past three years.  Please apply online at in electronic format (pdf only).

Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of and applications from women, members of minority groups, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities, as well as from others who would bring additional dimensions to the university's research, teaching and clinical missions.
