Research Fellow in Smart Energy Systems and Control Engineering

University of Leeds - Faculty of Engineering

Do you know how much energy is used in making a loaf of bread? Do you know how to make dumb machines smart to save energy in manufacturing?

Joining an exciting consortium to address the technical, operational and economic challenges in optimal energy management in industry, you will be conducting research, innovation and associated activities in the area of advanced control techniques for energy saving as part of the EPSRC funded 'OPTEMIN' project. The work is based on an award-wining technology to offer low-cost component-level energy monitoring, providing insights that can lead to reduced energy costs and optimised manufacturing processes (

Holding a PhD (or close to completion) in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Control Engineering, or a closely allied discipline, you will have a strong background in advanced control and optimization with applications to manufacturing or other energy intensive processes.
