  • New York, New York, Columbia University Post-doctoral Position The Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research (IEOR) at Columbia University in New York City invites applications for two post-doctoral positions for the project ``Risk-Aware Power System Control, Dispatch and Market Incentive'', funded by ARPA-E. The post-doc will work with professors Daniel Bienstock, Agostino Capponi, and Garud Iyengar at Columbia. The post-doc will work on the analytics, engineering design, and development of a risk dashboard for operations in power systems. The dashboard will rely on advanced techniques from risk management and newly designed asset and systemic risk metrics to continuously track systems and market conditions, as well as to proactively dispatch available resources to avoid insecure operations.  An important goal of the project is to inform independent system operators on how to use renewable, demand and storage resources for reducing risk, and on how to adequately compensate these resources for reducing systemic risks.  The candidate will have the unique opportunity to work on a cutting edge and potentially transformative framework that integrates advanced risk management concepts and techniques from financial engineering into power flows and wholesale market operations, such as load and renewable forecasts. Candidates must have a PhD degree in Electrical, Mechanical, Control, Environmental Engineering, Operations Research, or Applied Mathematics. We welcome candidates with a demonstrated record of research accomplishment and a strong commitment to excellence in education to apply. In addition, the ideal candidate should be familiar with power engineering and control theory. Exposure to financial risk management is desirable, but not mandatory. The candidate should also be very familiar with programming languages, such as C/C++ and Python.
