Institute for Energy Systems (IES) at the School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh

The power electronics research team within the Institute for Energy Systems at the University of Edinburgh is seeking to appoint an experienced Research to work on the modelling of high voltage DC (HVDC) systems and DC circuit breakers (DCCB). The successful candidate will be responsible for part of the University of Edinburgh’s contribution to the Network DC project. This is a multiparter project, led by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSE), which aims to advance the readiness of HVDC networks and enable the deployment of multi-terminal DC grids which cannot exist without DCCBs.

The School of Engineering is pleased to invite applications for the 2023 Elizabeth Georgeson Research Fellowship. This three-year Fellowship specifically supports early-career (postdoctoral) researchers form backgrounds that are under-represented in engineering research and academia (e.g. gender, minority ethnicity, disability, disadvantaged circumstances, etc.). The Fellowship aims to provide a supportive and collegial environment for early-careers researchers to develop new independent research, with a view to raising external research funding to conduct that research and establish an independent academic career. In this 2023 round of the Elizabeth Georgeson Fellowship scheme, we will therefore be prioritising applications from candidates who self-identify as female. Candidates of minority ethnic groups in the UK of all genders, with/without disabilities or other characteristics under-represented in Engineering are also encouraged to apply.

The University of Edinburgh Curved Wave Tank is a multidirectional wave facility, which is capable of producing digitally controlled pseudo random waves with definable spectral and directional statistics. It is equipped with force feedback absorbing wavemakers, which enhance the accuracy of marine environmental conditions through the minimisation of standing waves.
