Dear building simulation experts,

We are recruiting for an Assistant Professional Researcher (the
research-track equivalent
of the Professor position) within the Center for the Built Environment
<http://cbe.berkeley.edu/> at the University of California Berkeley.
We are seeking
a person to lead research on heating, ventilation and air conditioning
(HVAC) systems, building performance simulation, occupancy detection, and
plug load management.


The successful candidate’s main duties and responsibilities will consist of:

   - Participating in and leading research projects in building science
   that include building performance simulation, laboratory experiments, field
   studies of occupant comfort, energy performance, and other aspects of
   building performance.
   - Developing research capabilities and directions for the HVAC and
   building performance assessment team at CBE; identifying trends in research
   and helping to develop the corresponding team capabilities required to take
   on the associated research challenges.
   - Identifying funding opportunities at government agencies, industry and
   philanthropic organizations; leading proposals to apply to those
   - Overseeing simulation or experimental design and set-up, including
   data acquisition systems, calibration, physical measurements, human and
   building performance assessments, and simulation methods.
   - Supervising and conducting experiments in laboratory settings, field
   studies, or simulation contexts.
   - Overseeing and conducting comprehensive data analysis including both
   qualitative and quantitative data, and design tool development.
   - Writing technical documents and presenting research results, as well
   as preparing project reports for funding agencies and/or industry partners.
   - Writing articles for refereed academic journals, industry
   publications, and/or conferences.
   - Managing research project budgets.
   - Supervising and training graduate students and other team members
   working on research projects.
   - Participating in standards and code development and with professional
   associations, for example, ASHRAE or IBPSA.

If you are interested in joining our team, please see
