Applications are invited for the above post within the Buildings, Energy and Environment (BEE) Research Group to investigate ‘External Heat Engines/CHP systems’. The overall aim of the proposed research is to investigate a novel external heat cycle engine which could significantly increase the efficiency of CHP systems. The objective of the proposed project is to demonstrate and validate the experimental CHP solution which is more efficient, lower cost and lower maintenance than current systems with an estimated return on investment of less than five years. The proposed CHP system will have a 30% increased efficiency compared to current CHP systems.
The candidate should have the necessary practical in energy systems and power cycles. He/she needs to provide leadership and be able to drive the project forward.
The BEE Research Group has an international reputation for excellence across a broad range of sustainable energy technologies encompassing low carbon buildings, building retrofit, HVAC, energy storage and renewable energy in the built environment. The Group has extensive research facilities including the Creative Energy Homes and state-of-the-art facilities for sustainable technologies.
Candidates must hold a PhD (or be near completion) in an appropriate field e.g. energy systems. building services engineering, mechanical engineering, building technology or chemical/mining engineering. They should also have sound expertise in thermal power cycles.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of 3 months. Hours of work are full-time (36.25 hours per week), however job share arrangements may be considered.
