This is a new and exciting role within PNDC that will lead the delivery of an innovative programme of laboratory testing that has been enabled through a recent funding award. The role will sit within PNDC’s whole energy systems research, test and demonstration programmes - working on energy system flexibility and demand response technologies that work across multiple energy vectors (e.g., electricity, heat and transport).

The successful candidate will help to develop and deliver a wide range of technical projects to support the growth of PNDC’s energy flexibility and demand side response activities, with a particular emphasis on the experimental validation and testing of Demand Side Response systems.

The Senior R&D Engineer – Energy Flexibility & Demand Side Response will work closely with the Lead R&D Engineer and colleagues in PNDC to deliver an 18-month programme of work supporting the testing of seven novel demand response solutions provided by participating technology partners.

In addition, the post-holder will have the opportunity to lead on and contribute to the further development of the PNDC innovation agenda, prepare high value industrial funding proposals as well as being a strong catalyst in the knowledge exchange arena helping to build capability in our expanding ecosystem.

To be considered for the role, you will:

  • Possess the knowledge, skills and experience normally associated with a PhD in a relevant field or you will be educated to Honours Degree level with significant, relevant industrial experience.
  • Have experience of energy system flexibility and demand side response technologies, and their integration into the wider energy system.
  • Be able to apply this knowledge in a highly practical environment, have experience of leading the delivery of research and development projects in collaboration with industry or in an industrial context.
  • Have good technical writing ability and strong communication skills.
  • Be able to lead and contribute to high value industrial funding proposals, and manage funding awarded.
  • Be a self-starter, and able to plan and conduct individual research and knowledge exchange activities with minimal supervision, as well as generate new ideas and concepts.
  • Be excited about the role technology will play in achieving Net Zero targets and leveraging the strengths of industry, academia and government to create novel solutions and applications.

*Whilst a Senior R&D Engineer is ideally sought for this position, applications from candidates with less experience, are also welcome. In those circumstances, appointment will be made at grade 7 level (R&D Engineer: £34,308 - £42,155) and duties and grade will be revised accordingly.
