Based in the Sir Joseph Swan Centre for Energy Research, applications are invited for a Network Support Assistant to support a recently funded EPSRC project ‘Thermal Energy Challenge Network’. The project is intended to maximise research impact and reach through the engagement and transfer of knowledge to thermal energy stakeholders.

The Thermal Energy Challenge Network builds upon the success of other recently completed EPSRC funded projects, the PRO-TEM and Sus-TEM Networks. Both projects focused on sustainable thermal energy management, with the former covering process industries and the latter extending to transport and building sectors.

The Thermal Energy Challenge Network will address thermal energy management issues in all industrial sectors and buildings. The Network will also be strongly multidisciplinary and will aim to ensure engagement with research on all aspects of thermal energy management including technology, socio-economics, behavioural science and policy.

Experience of organising large scale networking events and conferences is also essential for this post. The position will involve working closely with academic and industrial project partners so excellent communication skills are required.

The post is fixed term for 3 years and is part time, at 18.5 hours per week
