Associate Research Scholar at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment Princeton University (USA).
Reference: D-22-ENE-00002 |
Princeton's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment is looking for an early-to-mid career candidate to help lead research on net-zero emissions energy transitions at the rank of associate research scholar or more senior. The selected candidate will join Rapid Switch, an international multi-disciplinary research collaboration.
Working with Andlinger Center Senior Research Scholars Eric Larson and Chris Greig and Professors Jesse Jenkins, Christos Maravelias, and Elke Weber, the individual will assist in directing collaborative and individual energy-systems analysis research projects that develop new modeling methods and decision support tools, advance research on practical challenges to net-zero transitions and how to overcome them, and assist in launching the Net-Zero Earth Challenge (NZEC).
Tasks Involved: The lab seeks to identify.
A. The pathways to accelerate decarbonization of energy systems by assessing barriers, bottlenecks, and unintended consequences that can happen during large-scale rapid energy-system transitions.
B. Quest to define approaches for resolving this sector-by-sector and region-by-region.
Requirements / Qualifications
A. Have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, systems engineering, operations research, energy resources, electrical engineering, computer science, or other relevant fields.
B. Applicant may have four years of energy-systems analysis experience,
C. Demonstrated track record of effective project and team management.
D. Experience in energy-technology assessment and energy-systems modeling, including optimization methods;
E. Familiarity with algebraic modeling languages used for linear and mixed-integer programming
F. Excellent English is written and spoken communication skills.
- An appointment will be for one year (possibility of renewal based on performance and funding availability).
