We have an exciting opportunity for someone with a passion for technical challenges looking to use their skills in building energy modelling to make an impact on energy efficiency of UK buildings and addressing climate change. You will join the Urban Flows Observatory and Resource, Infrastructure Systems, and built-Environments (RISE) group in our large and diverse academic department. You will further strengthen our strong international research profile and our reputation for novel, research-led teaching.
You will use your experience of building energy modelling and thermal analysis to contribute to building an urban digital twin based on multi-sensor data from the Urban Flows Observatory’s mobile sensing platform. Working alongside the rest of team at RISE, the role will offer you an opportunity to be responsible for creating and delivering a building energy modeling pipeline using existing building stock databases working as part of a team which selects, implements, and evaluates state-of-the-art methods to deliver tailored energy retrofit characterization of the UK building stock. In this dynamic role, you will also have the opportunity to work with project collaborators to integrate use of thermal imaging in development and validation of your building energy models.
Other key aspects of the role will include:
This post is suitable for a Research Associate (Grade 7). You will have a PhD (or about to receive one) in one of the engineering, physical or mathematical sciences. As you will be responsible for automating building energy modelling solutions, confidence in building physics, energy modelling and scripting is essential and experience with energy+ and python required. You should be an effective communicator, as you will be working with researchers in the group.
We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.
We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
