This post represents an exciting opportunity for an ambitious graduate to become part of a new cohort of exceptional researchers in a unique partnership between academia and business as part of Keele University’s Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND) project.

Under the supervision of an academic project lead, you will undertake a programme of collaborative research, development, and innovation (RD&I) which will underpin the development of a new product, process, or service, working collaboratively with a Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire business, Powelectrics. In addition, you will be eligible to submit the work undertaken as the basis of a body of work to be examined for consideration of the award of a PhD from Keele University. The programme of work aims to research data visualization for IoT data from a wide range of sensors, which would then enable data analytics capabilities using machine learning algorithms, comparing data from similar devices, predicting potential equipment failures and making informed decisions. The project will also investigate different communication technologies for IoT such as LoRA, Sigfox, and NB-IoT.

The Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND) project (Reference 32R16P00706) is part-funded from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds England Growth Programme 2014-2020 and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
