Queensland University of Technology

 

We are seeking an experienced and enthusiastic academic to play a senior leadership role and catalyse new opportunities in the rapidly evolving field of electrical power systems engineering. This position is strongly motivated by the need for systems level approaches at all scales of electricity networks.

This critical position will sit within the School's Power Engineering Discipline a group with world leading expertise across both power systems and equipment, and power electronics areas.

We seek someone with a broad vision for the emerging research areas in power systems; someone who can build on the group’s core expertise, and provide strong collaborative national and international linkages across disciplines, government and regulators, traditional and new power generators, distributors and participants for real world impact.

This position will help QUT embrace and advance new opportunities for power systems research, leverage the strengths within other disciplines (e.g. Data Science and Information Security), across the Science and Engineering Faculty, and QUT’s Institute for Future Environments (IFE).

We welcome applications that demonstrate excellence across teaching and research in areas of power systems engineering such as smart/future grids including distributed generation, storage and demand response; electricity markets; emerging distribution operation control and planning; and condition monitoring, asset management and planning. Demonstrated ability to bridge the gap between basic research and industry implementation will be viewed favorably.

 

Key responsibilities include:

  • Leadership in advancing the Discipline's research into emerging areas of power systems engineering and its translation into high-impact applications.
