Are you an ambitious researcher looking for a new challenge? Do you have expertise in energy geotechnics, especially in the simulation of ground heat exchangers or similar?
Do you want to join an expanding research team at a leading UK university?
Decarbonisation of heat is an essential step to meeting our shared climate challenge. Ground heat exchangers, where heat transfer pipes are buried in the ground or structure foundations, must form part of the solution to this challenge.
At the University of Leeds, our dynamic energy geotechnics team are leading research in this growing area. We would like to recruit a talented researcher to lead our thermal analysis of ground heat exchangers installed in buried infrastructure foundations.
As part of an exciting new UKRI Innovation Fellowship, Integrated Infrastructure for Sustainable Thermal Energy Provision (IN-
STEP), led by Dr Fleur Loveridge, you will lead innovative research into retaining walls used as ground heat exchangers (so called energy walls). The project aims to :
You will contribute to all of these important areas, using numerical and analytical methods and working with field data.
In particular you will lead research in :
You will also contribute to :
