The Power Networks Demonstration Centre (PNDC), part of the University of Strathclyde (Times Higher Education Awards University of the Year 2019 and Scottish University of the Year 2020), wishes to appoint two Senior R&D Engineers (Whole Energy Systems) to manage and deliver our innovation activities focussed on the development, realisation and integration of whole energy system solutions - those that span or can impact upon more than one sector of the energy system (electricity, heat, transport). Particular focus for these roles is low carbon heating and/or hydrogen-based energy systems. By bringing our expertise to project teams and key stakeholders, our aim is to accelerate innovation and de-risk the deployment and integration of new innovations and drive them towards business-as-usual within the net-zero energy system of the future.
The Senior R&D Engineers (Whole Energy Systems) will work closely with the Lead R&D Engineer (Whole Energy Systems) and other colleagues in the PNDC to develop and deliver a wide range of technical projects to support the growth of PNDC’s whole energy system activities, with a particular emphasis on the experimental validation and testing of low carbon heating and/or hydrogen-based energy systems. 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.
Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Richard Knight, Director for Strategy & Technology (firstname.lastname@example.org).
