Job Opportunities

Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor

Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment
Assistant, Associate or Full Professor

Princeton University invites applications for a faculty position at the assistant, associate, or full professor rank in the field of sustainable energy, engineering, and technology policy in the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment. We invite candidates from all relevant disciplines in engineering and the natural, physical and social sciences to apply. We seek creative and enthusiastic candidates with the background and skills to build upon and complement our existing departmental strengths, and those who can bridge disciplines and span research initiatives.

We are specifically interested in candidates with a strong track record and expertise in energy economics, energy finance, decision and behavioral sciences, or law related to energy technology and the environment. Particular research areas of interest include issues of policy and technology adoption related to energy transitions, greenhouse gas emissions control, urban infrastructure and resilience, and coastal adaptation.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. and have a demonstrated record of excellence and, for senior positions, leadership in research. The successful candidate will be jointly appointed between the Andlinger Center and an academic department aligned with the candidate’s expertise.

Of particular interest are qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of our academic community. We strongly encourage applications from individuals who identify as members of groups that are underrepresented in science and engineering.

Complete applications, including cover letter, curriculum vitae, and succinct descriptions of teaching and research interests should be submitted online to https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/27062. Applicants will also be required to submit names and contact information for three references. Candidates are encouraged to apply by November 1, 2022.
