We seek an individual with teaching and research interests in fields such as energy efficiency, building science, energy systems design and data analytics, or low-carbon/net-zero energy planning, together with a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate education. The person chosen will be designated the Puget Sound Energy Professor of Energy Studies and will have an ongoing and formal affiliation with WWU's Institute for Energy Studies and a full-time appointment in an academic Department based on their area of specialization.

The campus is located in Bellingham, Washington, a coastal community of 83,000 overlooking Bellingham Bay, the San Juan Islands and the North Cascades Mountain range. The city lies 90 miles north of Seattle and 60 miles south of Vancouver, British Columbia. Western is the highest-ranking public, master's-granting university in the Pacific Northwest, according to the 2017 U.S. News & World Report rankings. The Institute for Energy Studies is a unique, multi-college collaboration at WWU, which is designed to meet growing demand, from students and Washington's growing clean energy economy, for interdisciplinary education related to the science, technology, policy and business aspects of human conversion and use of energy. Our energy programs are designed to be interdisciplinary in a way that provides both breadth and depth, with a practical toolkit of technical and analytic skills in a context of system-level problem-solving and experiential learning, to build the applied expertise needed for entrepreneurship or employment in the energy field. This is a unique opportunity to help develop our new programs, and build connections to other areas such as WWU's programs in sustainability, entrepreneurship and innovation, engineering and design, etc. The Institute for Energy Studies supports Western's mission , which states that together with our students, staff, and faculty, we are committed to making a positive impact in the state and the world with a shared focus on academic excellence and inclusive achievement. We encourage applications from women, people of color, people with disabilities, veterans, and other candidates from underrepresented backgrounds and with diverse experiences interested in this opportunity. Position Responsibilities: The position requires a strong commitment to teaching and scholarship. Teaching responsibilities will include core energy studies courses as well as advanced courses in their area of specialization. Key areas of interest for the program are energy efficiency, building science, and energy planning. The successful candidate will maintain a research program involving undergraduate and/or masters-level students, and collaborate effectively with researchers in and beyond the department. The IES recognizes that a variety of academic perspectives address energy in the built environment, including building and environmental science, engineering, data analytics, planning and policy. We seek candidates who bring a scholarly background in one or more of these fields, plus a strongly multidisciplinary approach, to scholarship and teaching in the evolving nexus of energy technology and systems, climate change and energy policy and planning. Required Qualifications:
