The EPIC initiative includes a 200,000 square foot, $76 million LEED Certified building that opened in July 2012. It houses classrooms, lecture halls, conference rooms, a clean room, a smart grid facility, and offices and laboratories for electrical, civil, environmental and computer research related to energy and energy delivery infrastructure; space for industrial partners is also available. The EPIC Building features several specialized laboratories in the different focus areas.

Candidates at the level of assistant/associate/full professor will be considered, commensurate with professional experience and academic record. Candidates for all levels must hold a doctoral degree in electrical engineering, control engineering, analytics, or a closely-related field of study. The ideal candidate has expertise to build a successful research program in the area of control systems and energy analytics.  Applicants with relevant experience in power systems control and energy analytics will be considered, but particular consideration will be given to applicants demonstrating a desire and potential for interdisciplinary research. Of particular interest are candidates with the potential to contribute to power system control, diagnostics and forecasting.
