Center for Power Optimization of Electro-thermal Systems
What We Do
POETS’s ambitious, innovative approach to improving the power density of next generation electro-thermal systems involves integrating traditionally separate research efforts in mechanical, electrical, and materials engineering across different technical domains.
POETS is soliciting applications for the position of Senior Research Engineer or Research Engineer focused on prototyping and testing electrified power systems including thermal management on their Illinois campus.
