You will be joining an exciting 2-year project to build an energy storage demonstrator using hydrogen as the stored resource using a heavy metal hydride compound to provide reversible storage at ambient conditions.
We need a research engineer focusing on the monitoring, interfacing, semi-automation, control and safe operation of various instruments and components to help build and demonstrate this unique energy storage demonstrator.
This experimental demonstrator consisting of various types of valves, pressure controllers, flow meters, monitoring devices, etc. that will need to be integrated with a unifying software interface that enables semi-automated control of the storage system.
You will work closely and liaise with the technical teams of the HyDUS consortium (EDF, Urenco and the UK Atomic Energy Authority) while representing the University of Bristol.
What will you be doing?
You will be responsible for building an interface/environment that will enable ultimate control and automation for the storage demonstrator set-up in order to enable safe operation and fail-safe performance (accidental scenarios) of the system during the various processes (hydrogenation, dehydrogenation, etc.).
The HyDUS consortium is consisting of EDF (leading organisation of the consortium), UKAEA, University of Bristol and Urenco.
You should apply if
If you are a robotics, C&I or device integration researcher interested in being part of a high-impact energy storage project, involving major industrial and governmental organisations. This is a unique opportunity to develop and validate a new technology, so we’re looking for individuals who are driven and innovative.
Informal enquiries can be made to Prof. Tom Scott firstname.lastname@example.org and Dr Antonios Banos Antonis.email@example.com
We recently launched our strategy to 2030 tying together our mission, vision and values.
