Postdoc in microgrid measurement-based stability asessment

Union College
Country of Position: 
United States
Contact Name: 
Luke Dosiek
Subject Area: 
Signal Processing Theory and Methods
Start Date: 
12 November 2020
Expiration Date: 
31 August 2021
Position Description: 

The Department of Electrical, Computer, and Biomedical Engineering at Union College invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in the area of microgrid modeling, monitoring, and control. This is a two-year position that begins no later than September 1, 2021, with flexibility to start earlier. 

The position investigates the use of real-time measurements to provide online model validation and stability assessment in microgrids. Which measurements are most appropriate? How should these measurements be obtained? What are the signal processing and/or data analytics approaches that should be used? What is the library of models that can be used to assess the proposed methodologies? This position will work closely with Dr. Luke Dosiek on an NSF-funded project that seeks to answer these questions.

A Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering or a closely related field is required. Candidates expecting to complete their doctoral thesis before September 2021 are welcome to apply. The successful candidate will have a strong background in microgrid modeling, monitoring, and control, including hardware-in-the-loop simulation. Candidates with experience in data analytics, system identification, or detection and estimation theory are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants should submit a cover letter that includes a statement regarding the ability to contribute to a diverse community, an up-to-date CV, a statement of research interests, and names and contact information for three references through our online application available at An email will be sent automatically to references requesting a letter of recommendation. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
