We seek highly qualified candidates who can build and grow innovative, mission-led research programmes to make significant contributions in tackling real-world problems, including Global Challenges highlighted by Queen’s, by identifying and enabling new forms of interdisciplinary research and education. This recruitment is central to our ambitious expansion plans allowing us to deliver against Queen’s Vision2020

You will join the Energy, Power and Intelligent Control (EPIC) cluster, a leading research group within the School which comprises academic and research staff with internationally recognised expertise and profiles in electric power, renewable and green energy, intelligent systems and control. We support more than 30 PhD students annually and regularly host visiting academic staff and research fellows from around the world. We work with many national and international industrial partners and academic institutions on projects including real-time protection and control in transmission and distribution networks, novel applications of synchrophasor technology, demand side management, electric vehicles and 
load forecasting.

Your expertise in power electronics, particularly where combined with experience of designing and building power electronic circuits and systems, for modern power system and/or industrial applications, will help to strengthen and develop the work already being done in EPIC. Expertise in power electronic converters and circuits with applications to electric motor drives, electric vehicles and energy storage systems is of
