Job Details

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.
  • Research-inspired teaching in topics relevant to power systems engineering, and engineering more broadly.
  • Building the Discipline's research capacity and impact by attracting government and industry funded research income, catalysing new collaborations, leading research teams, and enabling academic colleagues.
  • Initiate, build and strengthen relationships between the University, industry, government, regulators and the community. Help communicate with and disseminate information to these stakeholders.
  • Publication of academic research papers, supervision of research staff, and attracting government and industry-funded research income.
  • Service to the university through mentoring, participation in relevant academic committees, assistance with student recruitment activities and extra-curricular student events.
  • Contributing to the profession through appropriate engagement with conference organisation, journal manuscript reviewing.
  • Supervision of student projects at both undergraduate (Bachelors) and postgraduate (Masters and Doctorate) levels.
  • Implementing and administering University policy within the Faculty with respect to equitable access to education and workplace health and safety.


  1. Record of outstanding leadership of research, including extensive experience obtaining external grants, publishing in top tier journals, and engagement with industry.
  2. Record of excellence and leadership in scholarly and innovative approaches to teaching and learning at tertiary level
  3. Demonstrated success at establishing and maintaining collaborations that extend best practice, implement leading solutions and realise new opportunities.
  4. Significant evidence of clarity as a strategic thinker, ability to be adaptive and future oriented in a way that provides real impact.
  5. Strong knowledge of power systems engineering and related industries and experience in leadership of research projects conducted for these industries (or similar industries).
  6. Experience with successful supervision of undergraduate and postgraduate research student projects.
