Job Opening at NCEMC: Load Research Analyst

Posting a job for my friend at NCEMC. Its forecasting team has been at the leading edge of the load forecasting research and practice. Over the past several years, we have worked together to develop several load forecasting methodologies that are very useful in practice. Most of them are now being used by many other power companies worldwide. You may check out our recent papers on long term probabilistic load forecasting and normalization, weather station selection, and residual simulation for probabilistic load forecasting. We have also planned many exciting research activities for the next few years, of which some are listed in the job description below. I would like to add one more personal note about this job: I think the hiring manager is another reason that this position is so appealing. I haven't seen many managers who are as generous and supportive as this one in terms of professional development for the employees. If you are interested, please submit your resume online HERE.
