ACADEMIC (9 months)
The Department of Engineering Physics in the College of Engineering
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison seeks candidates for a
tenure-track faculty position in nuclear engineering. While strong
candidates in all areas of nuclear engineering are encouraged to
apply, this search will prioritize areas related to integrated
safety analysis applied to nuclear engineering.
The department has identified a strategic priority in integrated
safety analysis and assessment, including areas such as development
and validation of modeling techniques applied to integrated
system-level computer codes, applications of data science, machine
learning and/or artificial intelligence to improve the predictive
capabilities of safety analysis tools, and integration of
experimental and simulation data to safety analysis. Demonstrated
potential for excellence in research and teaching in these or
related areas is desired. Preference will be given to candidates
who have experience working with state-of-the-art safety analysis
software for current and advanced nuclear reactors.
The new hire will have a tenure home in the Department of
Engineering Physics and will join a faculty community in the
Institute for Nuclear Energy Systems with diverse research
interests related to nuclear energy applications. As a member of a
vibrant nuclear engineering community, the new hire will have many
opportunities to establish collaborations with both experimental
and computational research groups already active on the UW campus.
Faculty members are expected to establish and maintain a
world-class graduate research program, teach courses, contribute to
the education and professional development of a diverse community
of undergraduate and graduate students, and engage in department,
college, university, and appropriate community and professional
