The Johns Hopkins University (JHU), one of the world’s premier research universities, invites nominations and applications for the position of Associate Director for Engineering and Utilities (ADEU).
The Johns Hopkins University was America’s first research university, founded for the express purpose of expanding knowledge and putting that knowledge to work for the good of humanity. It was incorporated in 1867 under the terms of a $7 million bequest from Johns Hopkins, a Quaker merchant of Baltimore, who directed that the funds be used for the establishment of a university and a hospital.
Reporting directly to the Senior Director for Facility Operations, the Associate Director will play a critical and highly visible role in ensuring that JHU achieves their ambitious goals related to sustainability and climate change initiatives, as well as capital planning, design, and construction. The ADEU will manage a team of 15 professionals, comprised of two Facility Engineers, one Utilities Plant Manager, eight Stationary Engineers, an Energy Manager, an Energy Analyst, and two Maintenance Mechanics.
The Associate Director is responsible for oversight of the Homewood campus utility plants, engineering design efforts related to building systems and campus infrastructure at Homewood and other supported projects and facilities, developing guidelines and standards that produce efficient energy use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and energy procurement. The ADEU strives to ensure these tasks are executed in a collaborative fashion between Design and Construction, Plant Operations, Planning and Architecture, and with the Office of Sustainability in an effort to achieve the University’s overarching design, operational, energy, and environmental goals.
