2 positions are open for Research Assistant/Associate in the Department
of Engineering at University of Cambridge (UK) to work on Energy
Management of Non-Domestic Buildings.
The key responsibilities and duties are to: investigate and develop new
approaches of uncertainty analysis for energy management of buildings,
research and test relevant methods; demonstrate their success by
identifying, compiling, analysing data from existing buildings and from
industry experts; writing high quality journal articles and reports;
independence in the management of research including coordination with
academic and industry collaborators.
Successful candidates will work with a team of researchers from
Engineering, Architecture, and the Judge Business School. This is a
multi-disciplinary project, involving the use of existing building data,
statistical analysis (uncertainty quantification in particular), and
energy simulation models to understand and improve energy management of
non-domestic buildings. The research team is led by Ruchi Choudhary
(Engineering) and includes Sebastian Macmillan (IDBE), Koen Steemers &
Yeonsook Heo (Architecture), and Michael Pollitt (Judge Business School).
Applications are invited from candidates who have obtained or are close
to obtaining a PhD in Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics, or
relevant discipline. It is necessary that the candidates have high
quality of skills in quantitative analysis and in computation, as well
as very good communication and writing skills. Candidates must
demonstrate research experience relevant to at least two of the
following topics: uncertainty analysis, computation (eg. High
performance computing), energy simulation of buildings. Relevant
industry experience on energy management of buildings will be beneficial
to the project.
Please use the following links (as applicable) to apply:
For questions contact Dr. Ruchi Choudhary (rc488 at cam.ac.uk) or Dr.
