Faculty Position in Energy Engineering

The Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth seeks to fill an open rank (assistant, associate, or full professor) tenure-track faculty position in energy engineering. The successful candidate will have a doctorate in engineering or a related, relevant scientific field and show strong potential to lead an externally-funded research program targeting transformational advances in energy systems and/or technologies. The candidate will further be a gifted teacher with motivation and expertise that complements the Thayer School’s distinctive interdisciplinary approach to engineering education in general, and ability to teach courses in environmental engineering in particular.

The Thayer School of Engineering is planning a significant expansion of faculty and programs, and this position will join a large and thriving cluster of researchers in energy, including those affiliated with the Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society. Exceptionally qualified senior candidates may be eligible for a chaired professorship affiliated with the Irving Institute.
