Research Fellow in Geothermal System Modelling
GEOTeCH (Geothermal Technology for Economic Cooling and Heating) is an EU Horizon 2020 project in which the University of Leeds works with fourteen other partners and takes a leading role in modelling geothermal heat exchange devices and systems. A novel vertical borehole heat exchanger technology has been developed and modelled in detail and is being incorporated into three demonstration projects. The next stage of the work will be to validate models, develop design tools and analyse data from the demonstration projects. You will work on tasks in the project involving modelling prototypical buildings, heat pumps and geothermal heat exchangers.
You should have a PhD in a relevant scientific, engineering or other numerate discipline, with a relevant track record in independent research design and application. You will have experience in developing dynamic models of buildings and integrated renewable energy systems.
The role is part-time. The pattern and total of hours are negotiable, between 50% - 75% full time equivalent.
