The University of Birmingham is looking to recruit a Research Fellow who will greatly contribute to the UK’s National Research Hub for Hydrogen Integration for Accelerated Energy Transitions (HI-ACT, hi-act.ac.uk). 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. The HI-ACT goal is to identify and understand the interactions and interdependencies for hydrogen integration, across the environment, people, infrastructure, technologies and regulatory bodies and governments, and investigate innovative solutions to hydrogen integration from a whole energy systems perspective.
The role at the University of Birmingham will be based at the School of Computer Science, and will be working with the Birmingham Energy Institute. The candidate will be collaborating closely with colleagues at 10 partner institutions involved in the HI-ACT and will be working alongside internationally recognised experts and at the forefront of research in energy system integration. The candidate is expected to investigate the role of data, information, and digital assets coupled with physical network in hydrogen systems. Using systems engineering methods, the candidate will design and develop cyber physical hydrogen integrated environment that incorporates different energy vectors, communication technologies, various digital assets, and actors. The candidate will explore the cyber security challenges associated to hydrogen eco-systems and will use security by design principles to improve the security measures that can reduce vulnerabilities and risks of cyber-attacks. This research will create new knowledge to enhance the digitalisation of energy system for accelerated integration of hydrogen technologies. The candidate is required to have a good understanding of cyber physical energy systems, systems engineering, Digital Twin, and cyber security.
The Research Fellow will be line managed and mentored by Dr Zoya Pourmirza, to deliver world-class research and play a leading role in the area of digital technologies and energy systems.
