Postdoctoral Researcher in Sustainable Cooling University of Oxford Department of Engineering Science, Begbroke Science Park United Kingdom

Begbroke Hill, Woodstock Road, Begbroke, Oxford

We are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate in Sustainable Cooling to join the Energy and Power Group at the Department of Engineering at Begbroke Science Park. The post is funded by the Oxford Martin School (OMS) on the ‘Future of Cooling’ programme and is initially fixed-term for 36 months or until 30 September 2022 (whichever comes first), and may be extended.

The successful candidate will join a world-class multi-institution team and will focus on examining how and why households in fast-growing countries are making structural transitions in their cooling energy consumption, and the ways in which to moderate this shift. You will be responsible for gathering information to understand the current cooling system in emerging countries. Also provide technical support to the project to design, develop and implement a qualitative survey methodology to understand cooling in households within certain areas.

You should hold a relevant PhD/DPhil, (or near completion, meaning you must have submitted your PhD thesis) in engineering, physics, mathematics or other related area, together with relevant experience. Also possess sufficient specialist knowledge in active and passive cooling systems. The successful candidate will work under Professor McCulloch and will be responsible for the identification of opportunities for technology, management and behavioural shifts in cooling systems.
