Salary range: £41,526 - £51,034
Closing Date: 21 March 2021
The successful candidate will work as part of a growing dynamic team to develop and deliver a wide range of technical projects to support PNDC’s whole energy system integration activities, with a particular emphasis on experimental validation and testing. The postholder will be expected to lead on and contribute to high-value industrial funding proposals, in addition to working with the PNDC’s industrial partners, with a strong focus on knowledge exchange.
Opportunities for innovation are extensive, through the strong working relationship and routes to market afforded by the PNDC’s industry members and commercial engagements. This will be supplemented with collaborative opportunities with other research and industry teams in the UK and abroad.
The PNDC offers a dynamic and varied environment, providing the opportunity to be involved in leading-edge work within the energy sector. As part of the University of Strathclyde, the PNDC can offer a wide range of benefits to the post holder, including a generous holiday entitlement, pension scheme, and discounts to the state-of-the-art Strathclyde Sport gym and leisure facilities.

To be considered for the role, you should possess the knowledge, skills and experience normally associated with a PhD in a relevant field or you will be educated to Honours Degree level with relevant industrial experience. You will have experience in low-carbon technology and system innovation (ideally covering aspects of the electricity, heat and transport sectors), energy systems integration requirements, and the associated protection, control and management systems. You will be able to apply this knowledge in a highly practical environment, have experience of leading the delivery of research and development projects in collaboration with industry or in an industrial context, and have good technical writing ability and strong communication skills. In addition, you will also be able to lead and contribute to high-value industrial funding proposals. You must be a self-starter, and able to plan and conduct individual research and knowledge exchange activities with minimal supervision, as well as generate new ideas and concepts, with the capacity to work in a dynamically changing team environment.
