This post provides an opportunity to contribute to research underpinning future development of hydrogen within the transition to net zero, and explore how this may affect future improvement of air pollution. It is funded under a joint project between UCL and Imperial College named COSH-AIR (Community scenarios of hydrogen energy and impacts on air pollution) as part of a NERC programme on hydrogen emissions. http://gotw.nerc.ac.uk/list_them.asp?them=Hydrogen&cookieConsent=A
The post is for 15 months and will be based in the Centre for Environmental Policy within Imperial College, internationally recognised for leading research on climate change and environmental security. You will be reporting to Professor Helen ApSimon and Dr Jeremy Woods, and supported by the Integrated Assessment Unit, which undertakes extensive research for government to support post Brexit policy on air pollution. There will be close liaison with work led by Professor Paul Dodds, Professor of Energy Systems, developing and applying world-leading energy modelling in the UCL Energy Institute. You will also be interacting with wider work on future energy scenarios at Imperial, including through the Energy Futures Lab
The future role of hydrogen towards achieving net zero is of increasing interest, and a growth area of research. The aim of this project is to understand how adopting hydrogen technologies is likely to affect air pollution. There are many potential uses for hydrogen, and the allocation of future uptake is very uncertain. But using hydrogen will enable us to reduce our consumption of fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas, and be an alternative to biomass, where, for example, wood used for domestic heating can be highly polluting.
Duties and responsibilities.
This is a full time, fixed term position for 15 months starting this summer. You will be based at South Kensington Campus.
