The Building Envelopes Research Group within the Building Technologies Research and Integration Center (BTRIC) in the Energy and Transportation Science Division (ETSD) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is seeking a postdoctoral research associate. BTRIC focuses on four main areas: 1) research and development of new materials, components and systems technologies for energy efficiency in buildings, 2) whole-building and community integration (energy efficiency, renewable energy, and to grid), 3) improved energy management in existing buildings and industrial facilities during their operational phase, and 4) market transformations from old to new in all of these areas.

Major Duties / Responsibilities
The successful candidate will be responsible for the following:

 *   Completion of the "Advanced Insulation and Systems" Sub Task "Building Envelope Insulation" project
 *   Application of Coupled Heat- and Moisture Simulation for soils in connection with below-grade building envelopes
 *   Development and Application of a comprehensive hygrothermal simulation tool for sealed attics
 *   Hygrothermal Risk Assessment of building envelope retrofit

This position requires a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in building science, as well as competencies in thermal calculation, hygrothermal simulation and risk assessment. Profound knowledge in insulation systems are required to work the ongoing and funded DOE research projects.

Applicants cannot have received the most recent degree more than five years prior to the date of application and must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment.
Applicants must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment. Expected duration of these appointments is one year with the possibility of an extension.

This position is a temporary, full-time assignment for 24 months, contingent on successful performance and continued funding.
