Thus, qualified candidates with research specialization in one or more of the following areas are encouraged to apply: (1) modern power grid operation, management, optimization, and resiliency; (2) information and systems sciences relating to smart grid applications, large scale and distributed sensing, optimization, control, machine learning, and/or data science; (3) renewable energy (e.g. wind, solar, hydrogen, biofuels) with interests in renewable integration to electric grids and/or deployment as distributed energy sources; 4) large-scale energy storage (e.g. batteries, chemical, thermal) with emphasis on materials, devices, and/or integrated systems; 5) functional and structural ceramics for energy technologies and infrastructure with emphasis on sustainable manufacturing, processing, integration and/or modeling.
