We are delighted to be launching our brand new Fellowship scheme, NUAcT (Newcastle University Academic Track) which offers five-year, well-resourced Fellowships, leading to faculty appointments.
Newcastle University is a world-class research-intensive university, advancing knowledge, providing creative solutions and solving global problems. We are looking to recruit a diverse cohort of investigators with the talent and motivation to become future research and academic leaders in their field.
There is a growing concensus that if we are to meet our global targets for decarbonisation of energy systems then we need to start to adopt whole systems approaches such that we consider Heat, Power Gas , Transport and Water systems as interacting interdependent systems. This approach needs to be used for the planning, design and control of new and existing energy systems. Whole systems approaches are in their infancy and significant work must be carried out to help society to make step changes in how energy is produced, used and controlled such that we can both mitigate and adapt to climate change. Newcastle University lead a number of National centres carrying out whole systems energy research including the Supergen Energy Networks Hub, North East Centre for Energy Materials and the Active Buildings Centre.
Applicants would be expected to have skills in the following areas:
Whole Energy Systems, Systems of Systems, Advanced Modelling Techniques, Applied Mathematics, Probabilistic and Stochastic Process Modelling, Multidisciplinary research methods, Uncertainty quantification and analysis, Multi Scale Modelling over Spatial and Temporal Dimensions, Multi Vector Technical Phenomena.
Who can apply?
We are looking for applicants who have the potential to develop into independent research investigators. You must have a relevant PhD and postdoctoral experience, a stong track record and be aspiring to apply for externally funded fellowships or other major awards.
What does the NUAcT programme offer?
Fostering equality, diversity and inclusion
Newcastle University is committed to the development of a fully inclusive University community which recruits and retains staff and students from all sectors of society. We understand that individuals have different needs and tailor our support package around these.
The University holds a Silver Athena SWAN award recognising the advancement we have made in promoting gender equality and the career progression of women. We are members of the Stonewall Global Diversity Champion programme which recognises organisations that are committed to Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LGBT) equality across the world, we are members of the Business Disability Forum and are currently in the process of joining the Race Equality charter.
