Do you have an excellent research track record with the vision and drive to tackle new challenges?

Are you passionate about delivering world leading research and an exceptional student experience?

The University of Leeds is building up an innovative research activity in Smart Energy Systems to address the global grand challenge of developing and implementing technologies to achieve sustainable, clean, secure and resilient energy supply and usage. As a Lecturer in Smart Energy Systems, you will join the recently formed Institute of Communication and Power Networks (ICaPNet) within the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. The Institute combines world class expertise in energy-efficient communication networks with innovation in heterogeneous electrical power systems to provide a fertile platform for novel developments in responsive/interactive energy networks. Your research experience may be in fields such as: power system analysis; smart grid architecture (including, e.g., decentralised systems, micro-grids, demand-side management, embedded generation and distributed storage, enabling communications and sensing technologies and cyber-physical interactions); multi-vector energy systems; whole energy systems solutions; energy storage and electric vehicles (including infrastructure design), and energy security. ICaPNet facilities include a multi-million pound investment in test-beds for energy-efficient communication networks and internet-of-things networks, and a new smart grid prototype laboratory. Cross-faculty collaboration and industrial collaboration opportunities in energy research are facilitated by Energy Leeds, an interdisciplinary centre with strong industry connections.In addition to developing an active research portfolio you will make a significant contribution to teaching in the School on our undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The University has an ethos of research-led teaching, and you will use your cutting-edge research to inform an innovative, creative approach to teaching and inspiring students at all levels.
