Established in 1890, the University of Oklahoma is a comprehensive public research university offering a wide array of undergraduate, graduate and professional programs and extensive continuing education and public service programs. For an improved nation-wide energy independence and sustainability, power and energy systems is one of the research themes of the Gallogly College of Engineering with strategic goals of developing unique technologies to: 1) support efficient, resilient, diversified and distributed energy systems; 2) establish new facilities to provide hands-on experiential training and education with modernization technologies; 3) develop and nurture meaningful collaborative relationships among federal agencies, national laboratories, and industry.
The Gallogly College of Engineering holds strong the values of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We seek candidates who contribute to fostering an inclusive culture in all aspects of faculty responsibility, including within the classroom, the academic community, and within their professional commitments. Candidates should include in their cover letter a discussion of how they have or intend to promote the college’s values of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The position requires an earned doctorate in electrical and/or computer engineering, or a closely related discipline. Serious consideration will be given to exceptional candidates who also possess a record of professional/industrial achievement sufficient for an untenured position at the rank of Assistant Professor. The successful candidate will be expected to: (a) contribute to research efforts in the development of smart grid technology, control of renewable energy resources and enhancement of grid security; (b) teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
A candidate should submit a letter of application that includes a discussion of their work to promote values of diversity, equity, and inclusion; a curriculum vitae; teaching and research statements; and the names of three references.
