Job description

The incorporation of the selected person would be made to the Electrical Storage department of the research center.

The selected candidate is expected to perform the following tasks:

- Developing an attractive research agenda in the field of LCA and techno-economic analysis
- Creation of open source LCA models of energy storage and hydrogen technologies, linked to renewable energies
- Integration of LCA with energy system modelling
- Use of data monitored in pilot plants for sustainability indicators
- Providing recommendations to decision-makers based on modelling results
- Collaborations with experimental researchers from CIIAE and other research centres
- Acquisition of competitive funding, both private and public, e.g. PhD students and postdocs.
- Successful collaboration with universities, research institutes and companies at national and international level.
- Successful orientation of PhD, postdoctoral and master students, i.e. fulfilling their own requirements
- Writing publication as first author (e.g. 1 article per year in a high-ranking journal)
- Project management and project administration (internal and external), also towards the department and CIIAE

Challenges: There are a large number of available technologies, actors, e.g. households and industry, as well as intrinsic uncertainty which makes LCA and techno-economic modelling complex. There is also a lot of data generated, which makes the assessment of outcomes important for providing policy recommendations challenging.

If f you are interested in this new project you have to send the following documentation:
