Tech launches national search for new director of SEI

Full Summary:

To affirm its commitment to participate fully in defining and developing the nation's energy future, Georgia Tech has launched a national search for a new director of the Strategic Energy Institute (SEI) and has created three new part time associate director positions within SEI.

The Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications and nominations for the position of Director of the Strategic Energy Institute (SEI), which is a multi-disciplinary research center with the mission of developing and enabling broad-based energy research within and across the many research units of Georgia Tech. SEI's primary role is that of a catalyst in positioning Georgia Tech to be one of the nation's leading contributors to technologies associated with the transformation and utilization of energy resources and to the development of a sustainable energy future.

The SEI director will hold an endowed Chair in Energy Systems and have an academic appointment in the appropriate Georgia Tech academic School. The director will report to the Senior Vice Provost for Research and Innovation.

As presently constituted, SEI has a small staff to enable assessment studies, assist in proposal activities and to effect program coordination. A director of development reports to the SEI director. Three associate directors have part-time commitment to SEI providing leadership in research development in three broad thrust areas: Energy Conversion; Alternative Energy and Storage; and Energy Deployment and Utilization.

Successful candidates will have well established credentials in research activities and recognized leadership in research program development. A Ph.D. degree in engineering, science or a related field is required.

Candidates meeting these minimum requirements are encouraged to submit: 1) a letter of application, 2) curriculum vita/resume, and 3) three letters of reference via e-mail (svpri@provost.gatech.edu). Though email is the preferred application method, hard copies may be sent to: SEI Director Search c/o Monique Tavares, Georgia Institute of Technology, Office of Research and Innovation, Carnegie Building, 225 North Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30332-0325.

Review of applications will begin December 1, 2009 and the search will remain open until the position is filled.

Georgia Tech is an Equal Education/Employment Opportunity Institution and offers a dynamic academic environment with competitive salary and benefits. The selection process will include successful completion of a pre-employment background screening. Georgia Tech is building a culturally diverse faculty and strongly encourages applications from female and under-represented candidates.
