The Systems Engineering Program at Colorado State University is seeking a research engineer to provide long-term, consistent, professional support of its electrical power systems research laboratories at the Powerhouse Energy Campus in Fort Collins, CO. This is a full-time, 12-month position with a two-year funding commitment with possible extension based on continued funding support.
The Powerhouse Energy Campus (completed in 2014) is part of a 5-acre site which houses the CSU Energy Institute and includes approximately 65,000 square-feet of innovative laboratory, office, meeting, classroom and business incubator space, distributed over four stories. The building provides a collaborative space that fosters close interaction and cooperation among students, faculty, researchers, industrial partners and sponsors, combining efforts to grow the impact, reach, and reputation of energy education and research at Colorado State University.
With a strong multi-disciplinary focus, the Systems Engineering Program at CSU includes faculty from diverse departments with the university such as Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical, and Biomedical Engineering. In this position, the research engineer will be fortunate to work with some of the best students and faculty across the university and in collaboration with industrial partners to support research on innovative and transformative projects to help solve the world’s most pressing energy challenges.
In this role, the research engineer will provide a key role in helping to build and expand CSU’s power system laboratory capabilities, standardize test procedures and data collection, provide information for technical reports, ensure safe operation of the laboratory, and provide mentoring and supervision for undergraduate and graduate students in the laboratory. The research engineer will be a key liaison for interactions with external partners conducting research experiments in the laboratory. It is also expected that the research engineer will contribute to research that will result in co-authorship on scholarly publications.
