D40735R - Research Associate (Thermo-Chemical Energy Storage)
 

Salary:                       £28,982 to £30,738 (with progression to £37,768)

Closing Date:            20 July 2016

Based in the Sir Joseph Swan Centre for Energy Research, applications are invited for a Research Associate with expertise in adsorption refrigeration, thermal energy storage, solar power engineering, heat and mass transfer, thermodynamics and conversion of low grade heat to work on EPSRC funded research projects. 

The aims of the projects are to address the UK's need to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption in order to meet targets for reduced CO2 emissions. The research will focus on the maximum exploitation of recoverable heat through thermal/chemical storage which can be used when required, be upgraded for higher temperature applications and used to offset electricity and/or cooling demands.

You should have a PhD related to refrigeration and cryogenics, and an engineering degree. A strong background in thermodynamic, heat transfer and adsorption system design and modelling is also essential. The position will involve working closely with academic and industrial project partners so excellent communication skills are required.

The post is full time and fixed term for 12 months to cover maternity leave.

The University holds a silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality, and the University holds the HR Excellence in Research award for our work to support the career development of our researchers.  We are also a member of the Euraxess network.
