The UCL Energy Institute is seeking to appoint two Research Associates to undertake dedicated projects in energy systems analysis as part of the UK’s leading energy systems and modelling research team. You will work on a range of projects including the UK Energy Research Centre (the UK Research Council’s flagship whole energy systems programme), economic analysis and modelling of Transition Pathways, development work on the Energy Technology Institute’s ESME systems model, behavioural and uncertainty modelling under the FP7 Advance Project, and systems modelling of Industrial Energy Efficiency.
The ideal candidate for the post is a quantitative, analytical person with a keen and established interest in multi-disciplinary and policy-relevant energy research. The candidate will have a deep interest in and outstanding aptitude for energy systems analysis. A postgraduate degree in mathematics, engineering, economics, operations research or related quantitative field is required. The successful candidates would become fully fledged energy system modellers, able to build, run, critique, and explain a range of modelling frameworks. The posts are initially funded for 2 years but may be extended if further funding becomes available.
Closing date is 1 July 2012. More information is located here.
