About the role

We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer with a strong alignment to Power Systems Engineering to provide excellent postgraduate research supervision and deliver high-quality teaching. We are looking for outstanding researchers to enhance our research, join an expanding and ambitious department, shape the technology of the future in a vibrant and inclusive environment, and to engage with plans to grow teaching in this area with strategic partnerships.

Our electrical power systems research area is part of the Centre for Sustainable Energy Systems and has a reputation for strong scientific contributions to scalable energy network and market modelling and analyses. We have delivered tools and evidence for the UK Government, the energy regulator and wider industry for introducing new industrial standards, practices, and policies to accelerate the net zero transition. We are at the forefront of energy system data and digitalisation through our engagement with the government's Energy System Digital Spine project. We deliver annual Power Markets Training Course to national policy makers outside the UK, in conjunction with Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office and the University of Cambridge.

We are interested in applicants with core expertise in Power Engineering and a strong focus in the net zero transition. Candidates with a deep understanding of energy markets and/or energy system digitalisation would be advantage.

  • Power system fundamentals
  • Power system modelling and analyses
  • Power system operation, protection and resilience
  • Energy markets and regulation
  • About you

  • Have a growing publication record and international reputation appropriate to your career stage;
  • Have potential for winning and delivering on research grants
  • You will be a kind and culturally aware leader who fosters an environment where every individual is valued and respected, regardless of their background or identity. You will understand that change is inevitable and necessary, actively encouraging your team to adapt and evolve. By promoting a culture of openness and inclusivity, you will create a dynamic and empowered team that can thrive in today's changing world.
