Research Associate - Modelling

University of Bath - Architecture & Civil Engineering

Location: Bath
Salary: £35,333 to £42,155 per annum (Grade 7)
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 29th September 2022
Closes: 16th October 2022
Job Ref: CF9867

SOC Code - Visa Requirements: 2119, this role is sponsorable

Interview Date: Friday 28 October 2022

This exciting new position is for a Research Associate to work for an 18-month on a project to aid in developing a new thermal comfort standard for buildings in Qatar.

About the role

This post is to construct detailed thermal models of a series of buildings in Qatar and work out the scale of energy savings possible through the implementation of alternative indoor thermal comfort models within the thermal models. A key aspect of the work will be the need to account for uncertainties in knowledge around material palettes, operation and occupancy. This work will investigate the potential to reduce peak and total energy demand, and compare the scale of savings accruing from changing the model of thermal comfort to other possible changes in the design and operation of the buildings. The post holder will be required to coordinate activities between UK and Qatar and contribute to other work streams – especially the POE work that will precede model creation.

About you

The successful candidate will have a first degree and doctorate in architectural engineering or civil engineering. Strong knowledge of Energy+ coupled with an ability to use it programmatically would be highly advantageous. In addition to the core scientific tasks listed above, the applicant will also be required to support work on other aspects of the project, as directed by the investigators. We are therefore looking for motivated and committed individuals with strong communication skills to work in a multi-disciplinary research environment.

Further information

You will join the EDEn (Energy and Design of Environments) research group within the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, but work closely with other co-investigators, including those in Qatar. For more information on EDEn click here

This post is available on a full-time basis for and expected duration of 18 months starting November 2022. For an informal discussion about the position please contact Dr Sukumar Natarajan (s.natarajan@bath.ac.uk).

As a joint Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering, we promote collaborative research between both fields. This vision is fundamental to our research activities in our four interdisciplinary groups. While you will join us as a Department with four well-established research centres: Centre for Innovative Construction Materials, Centre for Advanced Studies in Architecture (CASA), Centre for Energy and the Design of Environments and the Centre for Infrastructure, Geotechnical and Water Engineering (IGWE); we are in a process of significant change with eight new centres announced at faculty level (i.e. across four departments) replacing all department focused research centres. Your natural home with this project will be the new Centre for Humanitarian Engineering (name tbd).
