Two openings for recent Ph.D. graduates to work on creative, multidisciplinary research projects that explore new directions for the digital transformation of electric grid. This research is intended complement the continuing work of Stanford faculty to develop a new grid paradigm that is needed to incorporate large amounts of clean power and a growing number of distributed energy resources, while simultaneously enabling grid reliability, resilience, security and affordability. Potential projects span a variety of disciplines.

Bits & Watts Fellows will have support for up to two years to work on creative, multidisciplinary research.

Applications are accepted from individuals interested in pursuing postdoctoral training in digital transformation of electric grid, under the mentorship of faculty members at Stanford University. Of special interest is multi-disciplinary research on a scalable system architecture for digitization (computing & physical) of the electricity infrastructure including but not limited to:

a) Coordination of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) for grid service b) Cyber and physical security of the electricity infrastructure c) Microgrid

Candidates from groups that are under-represented in their disciplines, including women, ethnic minorities and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
