The Birmingham Centre for Energy Storage (BCES) is recruiting three highly motivated researchers to join a successful research team at the University of Birmingham. BCES is a cross-campus centre with its hub in the School of Chemical Engineering. It is part of the Birmingham Energy Institute with activities covering both fundamental and applied research in novel materials, devices and systems of thermal and chemical energy conversion and storage, multiscale modelling, process scale-up and materials manufacturing (https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/energystorage).
This post is part of the team working on two EPSRC recently awarded projects (EP/V041665/1 and EP/V042033/1) on advanced heating/cooling decarbonisation technologies, in collaboration with the University of Glasgow, the University of Edinburgh, and UCL. The post holder will also have opportunities to visit oversea collaborators (secondment) and the travel expense will be fully covered by a H2020 RISE project CO-COOL: https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101007976
The Research Fellow is expected to contribute to the development of thermochemical energy storage and chemisorption heat pump technology, with focus on the system level demonstration and evaluation. S/he will to assess the technical performance of storage-integrated chemisorption heat pump systems through both simulation and experiments. Numerical models will be developed firstly to guide the design and construction of the experimental system. The validated model will be further used to predict the dynamic operation and performance of commercial-scale systems. S/he will also contribute to publications, new grant proposal writing, and PhD student supervision.
