An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Mechanical Engineering team within
the School of Engineering and Technology as research assistant in thermal
energy systems with core responsibility to conduct the research in waste heat
to power conversion.
This role requires expertise and experience in the area of thermal energy
systems, mainly heat to power conversion technologies. The experience in the
area of low temperature and waste heat to power conversion technologies,
especially organic Rankine cycle, super critical CO2 cycle, and/or Kalina
cycle is desirable.
On joining us, you will help us to develop basic simulation tools and models
to assess the waste heat recovery potential of key energy conversion
technologies. The simulation models and tools will be applied for different
industrial sites to assess the waste heat recovery potential. A preliminary
feasibility study will be conducted for number of energy intense industries to
analyze the economic benefit of the waste heat recovery from practical
The minimum qualification for this role is MSc/MEng in Mechanical Engineering,
Chemical Engineering, or closely related field.
