Delaware Technical Community College (DTCC) has posted three-full time faculty positions for green energy technology education.
Posted as Energy Management & Renewable Energy Technology Instructor, the three positions will be for DTCC’s New Castle, Kent and Sussex Counties campuses. Applicants are encouraged to indicate the location(s) of interest on their applications. According to the DTCC, the posting will remain open until an adequate pool of applicants is received.
These positions were mentioned in an IREC interview with Stephanie Smith, DTCC’s Vice President for Academic Affairs last month.
According to the job posting, the instructors will oversee the development and implementation of new educational offerings in energy management, sustainability, and renewable energy technologies including solar photovoltaic, solar thermal and on-ground wind. Duties include program planning and implementation including development of the curricula, courses, student projects, lab activities and related manuals, and student learning outcomes assessment, in accordance with national standards from organizations such as the Partnership for Environmental Technology Education (PETE), the Advanced Technology Environmental Education Center (ATEEC), and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Inc. (IREC). Instructors will actively participate in educational lab facility planning and set-up and collaborate with College staff to acquire equipment through a variety of means. Instructors will teach courses, preparing students with the qualifications, knowledge, and skills to demonstrate industry competencies and meet the growing energy management needs within our community. Industry certifications, or the education and experience necessary to acquire certifications, from nationally recognized organizations such as the National Board of Certified Energy Practitioners, the Building Performance Institute, Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET), and/or the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) are preferred.
According to Smith, hiring will take place during the spring. “As programs scale up,” said Smith, “the faculty will develop and teach introductory courses in energy management and sustainability across curricula for non-majors, free workshops and conferences for business owners and consumers, and energy management, efficiency and renewable energy technologies for majors.”
