Research Associate

The University of Edinburgh - College of Science and Engineering

The Sustain lab is a multidisciplinary team using methods from data science, human-computer interaction, and social sciences to study energy, health and related problems. We seek a PhD-level data scientist/engineer to work initially on three projects related to energy use in buildings. IDEAL and BIG-SMALL are focused on households, and here the data science challenges are to infer occupant behaviour from a variety of data sources (demographics and surveys) and streams (sensors reading temperature, humidity, electricity and gas use, and webapp interactions). Enhance is focussed on labs and performance spaces, with similarly diverse data sources. For all these projects, the overall goal is to help make energy use more efficient through feedback to building occupants. 

The post is fixed term until the end of November 2018, although additional funding is being sought to extend the work. 

The postholder will work with the rest of the team on these projects, being supervised by the PI Dr. Nigel Goddard and Co-I Dr. Charles Sutton.
