The Smart Energy Research (SERACH), led by Prof. Yury Dvorkin, at NYU Tandon School of Engineering is seeking to hire a Postdoctoral Researcher/Postdoctoral Associate to join an ongoing project "Risk-Aware Power System Control, Dispatch and Market Incentives" funded by the US DOE ARPA-e. New York York University (NYU) is one of the top private universities in the United States, and the Tandon School of Engineering has the distinct history of having been known previously as Brooklyn Poly and the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering. More information about the SEARCH group can be read here: https://wp.nyu.edu/dvorkin/
This project involves a collaboration with PIs, postdocs and graduate students at Columbia University and University of Arizona. This postdoc will work on the risk optimization and analytics, engineering design, and development of a risk dashboard for operations in power systems. The dashboard will rely on advanced techniques from risk management and newly designed asset and systemic risk metrics to continuously track systems and market conditions, as well as to proactively dispatch available resources to avoid insecure operations. An important goal of the project is to inform independent system operators on how to use renewable, demand and storage resources for reducing risk, and on how to adequately compensate these resources for reducing systemic risks. The candidate will have the unique opportunity to work on a cutting edge, multi- disciplinary and disruptive framework that integrates advanced risk management concepts and techniques from financial engineering into power flows and wholesale market operations, such as load and renewable forecasts.
Candidates must have (or soon to complete) a PhD degree in Electrical, Mechanical, Control, Environmental Engineering, Operations Research, or Applied Mathematics. We welcome candidates with a demonstrated record of research accomplishment and a strong commitment to excellence in education to apply. In addition, the ideal candidate should be familiar with power engineering and control theory. Exposure to financial risk management is desirable, but not mandatory. The candidate should also be very familiar with programming languages, such as C/C++ and Python. Eligible candidates will be required to present eligibility to work in the United States.
Tandon faculty and students are at the forefront of the high-tech start-up culture in New York City and have access to NYU's Global Network University. The NYU Tandon School of Engineering is deeply committed to excellence in teaching and learning. Tandon fosters student and faculty innovation and entrepreneurship that make a difference in the world.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, a current CV and a list of three references with complete contact information (referees will be contacted later). Please apply through Interfolio at: http://apply.interfolio.com/82166
