Resilient and Sustainable Energy Systems

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University invites applications for open positions at all levels, with a preference toward senior levels. We seek exceptional candidates addressing problems in resilient and sustainable energy systems, with expertise broadly in one or more of the following areas:

  • Utility power systems
  • Power electronics and machine drives
  • Renewable energy and sustainable systems
  • Networks and cyber-physical systems
  • Large scale system monitoring and control

The successful senior candidate should be an established researcher with a sustained record of funding, peer reviewed publications, and strong technical leadership. Outstanding candidates at the assistant professor level will also be considered. Successful candidates will be expected to develop strong independent research programs and to excel in teaching in both our undergraduate and graduate programs.


A Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering or a closely related field by the start date is required.
