    Endowed Chair Professorship: Max McGraw Professor of Energy and Power Engineering and Management


    The Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) seeks a distinguished scholar to be the Max McGraw Professor of Energy and Power Engineering and Management with an appointment as full professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department (www.ece.iit.edu). Candidates are expected to have an outstanding record of accomplishment in research and education commensurate with that of an eminent full professor with expertise related to energy and power engineering and management. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, distributed energy integration and microgrids. The position offers highly competitive compensation and benefits. The McGraw Endowed Chair will have a unique opportunity to work with a diverse group of 50 IIT faculty members affiliated with the Wanger Institute for Sustainable Energy Research.

    The ECE Department offers bachelor, master and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering and in computer engineering. It accounts for the largest number of students in IIT's Armour College of Engineering, with 257 degrees awarded in 2013 including 159 Master's and 19 Ph.D. degrees. The Department's 25 faculty conduct research in power and energy, image and signal processing, networks and communications, VLSI and computer systems, and electronics and electromagnetics, with research awards in the most recent fiscal year exceeding $8.3M.

    Applicants should electronically submit to Dr. Jafar Saniie, Filmer Professor and Associate Chair of the ECE Department (sansonic@ece.iit.edu), a letter of interest outlining their experience and qualifications for the position, their curriculum vitae, and a list of three professional references.
