The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering seeks a Research Assistant (RA) to support the activities of the electrical system in transportation team. This role will support ongoing research activities linked with the integration of high-powered electric vehicle (EV) charging within existing electrical distribution networks.

The RA will play a crucial role in supporting the deployment of innovative technology solutions aimed at maximising the use of existing grid infrastructure and related assets. These solutions are being considered to facilitate high-powered EV charging in grid-constrained areas, potentially reducing grid energy imports and associated operating costs.

The successful candidate will contribute to the following key activities:

  • Development and Implementation: Assisting in the conceptual design of integrated charging micro-grids that decouple EV charging power requirements from the grid. This includes supporting the modelling of high-powered EV charging, battery storage, and on-site renewable generation.
  • Modelling and Analysis: Supporting the development of scalable models to represent vehicle behaviour, renewable generation resources, and electrical systems. Conducting integrated system studies to aid decision-making on asset sizing, ensuring the designed system meets expected service levels.
  • Knowledge Sharing: Contributing to knowledge dissemination through workshops, online resources, and direct stakeholder engagement. This includes supporting the development of learning outputs such as case studies.

Under the guidance of the project lead, the RA will work in culturally diverse teams and support activities linked to technical research, workshop design and delivery, and the development of knowledge outputs for online publication.

To be considered for the role, you will be educated to honours degree level in a relevant discipline (e.g. engineering or related numerate disciplines) or have significant relevant experience in a similar role. You will have the ability to work well as part of a team and possess excellent verbal and written communication skills. You will be capable of high-level problem solving and able to work on your own initiative.

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Professor Stuart Galloway (stuart.galloway@strath.ac.uk).
