The James Watt School of Engineering are looking to recruit a Research Associate to make a leading contribution to the UK’s National Research Hub for Hydrogen Integration for Accelerated Energy Transitions (HI-ACT, hi-act.ac.uk). The vision of HI-ACT is to ensure that hydrogen is appropriately integrated in a future equitable energy system, through holistic multi-disciplinary research which addresses integration challenges. HI-ACT will achieve this through a fundamental shift in critical analysis of the role of hydrogen and alternative liquid fuels (HALF) in the context of the overall energy landscape. We will collaborate closely with key stakeholders to co-create a robust research outcome.
HI-ACT will establish a national Hub of excellence and create a collaboration ecosystem catalysing world leading research with actionable outputs and long-term, sustainable impacts. We aim to continually engage with stakeholders and interested parties throughout the process to make the transition as equitable as possible.
The role at the University of Glasgow, working closely with colleagues at 10 partner institutions Team - HI ACT (hi-act.ac.uk), will support collaboration in hydrogen integration modelling. Using methods from complex adaptive systems and ontologies, and leveraging ICT/Cyber Physical Infrastructure, we will create new models pipelines that allow us to understand the resilience, performance and decarbonisation pathways of hydrogen within adaptive and whole system networks.
This role will position you alongside internationally recognised experts and at the forefront of research in energy system integration modelling. The successful applicant's research will be enriched through stakeholder engagement and reside at the interface of a detailed articulation of both community and energy infrastructure requirements, coupled to our emergent cyber physical infrastructure, with the potential to unlock the radical reform of our energy networks and services.
Informal enquiries about the role are welcomed, and should be addressed to Prof. David Flynn, Head of Research Division (HoRD), Autonomous Systems and Connectivity (ASC) (David.Flynn@Glasgow.ac.uk)
