We are seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to join the Energy and Power Group at the Department of Engineering Science. The post is funded by UK Research and Innovation on the project “Market Design for Scaling Up Local Clean Energy Systems”. It is fixed-term for 24 months.
The successful candidate will be responsible for original research, focusing on the challenge of integrating new local markets for peer-to-peer energy trading and distribution system flexibility into power system operations. This will involve the application of advanced methods from multi-agent control, stochastic optimisation and game theory. The project will include the development of a simulation platform to analyse the real-time interactions between local and system-level energy markets (operating in parallel at different time scales and physical scales), using Oxford’s high performance computing facilities.
You should hold a relevant PhD/DPhil in electrical engineering, computer science or similar area (or be near to completion), and should have experience with control systems and/or game theory and demonstrable programming experience.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr Thomas Morstyn using the email address below.
For more information about working at the Department, see: www.eng.ox.ac.uk/about/work-with-us/
You will be required to upload a CV with details of two referees, and a supporting statement. The supporting statement should explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience.
Only online applications received before 12.00 midday on 8 July 2019 can be considered.
The Department holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
