Apply now Job no: 504953
Classification:Post Doctoral Fellow
Grade:Non-Union Faculty Grade 40
Work type:Post Doc
Administrative Unit:University of Alaska Fairbanks
School/Business unit:College of Engineering & Mines
Location: Fairbanks
Categories: Engineering/Computer Science

Position Summary: The Alaska Center for Energy and Power at the University of Alaska Fairbanks works to develop practical and cost effective solutions to reduce the energy cost in remote regions. ACEP covers all areas of energy research from the research and development of forward thinking solutions, to the technical, policy and economic support of near-term projects. The Power Systems Integration Team at ACEP works towards remote islanded microgrids with high technical efficacy and efficiency when incorporating renewable energy with conventional generation and beyond. We work on solutions from fundamental modeling through in-system testing at a 500 kW state-of-the-art hybrid-diesel microgrid facility. Our team works within the family of programs at ACEP and the Institute of Northern Engineering, and we regularly collaborate with Alaskan and international utilities, start-ups and established companies, national laboratories, and other universities. If you would like to be part of a highly functional team with experience ranging from systems implementation, the assessment of research and business opportunities, to background work in basic science, and you bring enthusiasm, a strong work ethic and the ability to find synergies in a diverse group, this job might be for you. If you demonstrate the ability to conduct defined research and development projects successfully, and lead research staff and graduate students well, you will quickly be given the opportunity to gain larger responsibilities for a defined team and budgets. This postdoctoral fellowship is initially limited to one year. However, successful candidates may be able to convert their position to a research assistant professorship.
