The School of Design and Creative Arts is seeking to appoint an experienced qualitative researcher who can further our understanding of the user requirements for low temperature networks in the UK. The post holder will support the LoT-NET project and is expected to have a background in qualitative research, evidenced through collecting data from people in homes and analysing the data using established qualitative analysis approaches. Applicants are likely to be from a user centred design, design research, human factors, psychology or social science background.

LoT-NET is a 5 year Programme Grant funded by EPSRC and aims to prove a cost-effective near-zero emissions solution for heating and cooling that realises the huge potential of waste heat and renewable energies by utilising a combination of a low-cost, low-loss, flexible heat distribution network together with novel input, output and storage technologies. The project is a collaboration between Warwick University, Loughborough University, University of Ulster and London South Bank University. It considers how waste heat streams from industrial or other sources feeding into low temperature heat networks can combine with optimal heat pump and thermal storage technologies to meet the heating and cooling needs of UK buildings and industrial processes.
