Are you interested in sustainable, reliable, and resilient energy supply?

Do you have the skills to contribute to the development of self-sustained and resilient energy distribution for developing countries?

This is a unique opportunity to join an exciting consortium that seeks to address the technical and operational challenges in the development of low-cost, resilient, and reliable Microgrids in developing countries, such as Tanzania, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

You will be conducting research, innovation and associated activities in the area of optimisation and advanced control techniques for distributed energy systems as part of the recently RCUK funded £1.5m 'CRESM-HYRES' project under the umbrella of the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). GCRF is a £1.5billion fund announced by the UK Government to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries.

Holding a PhD (or close to completion) in Electrical Engineering, Control Engineering, or a closely allied discipline, you will have a strong background in advanced control and optimization with applications to electric power or energy systems.
