DESCRIPTION OF RECRUITMENT INSTITUTION
CY Cergy Paris University is a French University close to Paris that
gathers the University Cergy-Pontoise, EPSS and ILEPS with the ESSEC Business
School. CY is committed to respecting the HR Charter and Code of Conduct and
is involved in the HRS4R labelling process.
CY hosts about 25,000 students and focusing more on research, gathers more
than 400 PhD students and 500 researchers in over 23 laboratories. It is part
of the CY Alliance, which has been awarded by the French government's
“Investments for the Future” program for its capacity to become a world-class
university with excellent research and training. CY is also a member of the
EUTOPIA European University that aims to develop an open and inclusive academy
The Laboratory of Systems & Applications of Information & Energy
Technologies - SATIE is a research laboratory in electronics and electrical
engineering. Its research activities are focused on systems and applications
of information and electrical energy technologies. SATIE is a medium sized
laboratory with around 90 Academic staff, around 20 technical and
administrative staff, and around 100 doctoral and post-doctoral research
students. It is mainly located in Paris region. Its Components and Systems for
Electrical Energy division (CSEE) has several laboratory platforms in the
field of power electronics, drives, magnetic materials and micro-grids. CSEE
is also engaged in many industrial partnerships and institutional projects.
DESCRIPTION OF RESEARCH GROUP AND TOPIC
SMARTGYsum (SMART Green energY Systems and bUsiness Models) project
groups together leading European Universities and Institutions (the
consortium is composed by 13 universities and 14 companies/institutions) with
the aim to implement a multidisciplinary and innovative research and training
program, bringing to enable a new generation of Early Stage Researchers
(ESR) to foster a New Green Energy Economy in Europe. ESR will acquire the
knowledge, methods and skills across a wide range of disciplines around the
Energy ecosystem, Renewable Electric Energy Systems and Business Models for
the deployment of the Green Energy System. Trained ESR will have the technical
and economical knowledge to break the barriers for the deployment of energy
transition as market and social barriers (price distortion through
externalities, low priority of energy issues, split incentives); financial
barriers (investment, high up-front costs, lack of access to capital);
information failures (lack of awareness, knowledge and competence); or
regulatory barriers (restrictive procurement rules).
CYU-SATIE invite applicants for a PhD Fellowship in Green Energy Systems
to research in “ Edge Computing Platform for Fault Tolerant, High Reliable
and Resilient Power Electronic in Prosumers Applications ”.
The research topic will be contextualized in WP4 – End user of Energy and
Prosumers , being supervised by Prof. Eric Monmasson and co-supervised
by Prof. Oleksandr Velihorskyi , and with a complementary secondment in
Chernihiv National University of Technology (CNUT, Ukraine) and TERA
(Ukraine) as an industrial partner.
The student will acquire expertise in interdisciplinary fields, gaining
through this training program a set of skills that are highly appreciated by
semiconductor corporations, providing him/her a valuable expertise background
for a future career in the green energy industry.
The ESR will take part in the whole researching process, starting with the
proposal of new ideas, going from the design to the experimental validation of
prototypes in the laboratory and industry facilities, and finishing with the
developing of the business models.
CONTEXTUALIZATION OF POSITION
The position is in the frame of a H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative
Training Networks (ITN) action for Early Stage Researchers within the
project SMARTGYsum (Research and Training Network for Smart and Green
Energy Systems and Business Models). ESR09 fellow to be recruited in March
2022. The grant covers up to 3 years (contract will be for 1 year with
renewing possibility) of full time research according to salary table
established in the grant for France.
For consideration, interested applicants should submit the required
information by completing the form in https: // www. smartgysum.eu/Home/Apply
based on the instructions given. An attached document must be uploaded
containing REQUIRED DOCUMENTS, at least the curriculum vitae, applicant's
academic results, a letter of interest and contact details of two references.
All documentation should be in English and merged in a single PDF document.
Please, note that applications which do not follow the announcement's
guidelines will not be considered.
For further information, please contact Dr. Eva Gonzalez-Romera
(email@example.com) for questions about application procedure or
Prof. Eric Monmasson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for questions about research
Tuesday, the 25th of January 2022
SMARTGYsum project is aimed to train 15 creative and innovative researchers in
the field of green energy system and business models. It will incorporate
multidisciplinary knowledge, covering Power Electronics, Electric Engineering,
Material Sciences, ICT, Data Sciences, Value Chains, Finance and Investments,
Management of Energy Markets, Economical and Policy instruments.
The researchers trained in this network will be able to convert state-of-the
art knowledge and ideas into new products for economic and social benefit and
promoting the energy transition.
As a trained researcher you will have many opportunities to develop an
industrial career in any part of the world, but especially in the EU. You will
be trained in electric, power electronic and ITC technologies and in business
models, and have a secondment in a complimentary training environment as part
of your assignments.
You also will be in a very good position to join R+D departments of Energy
Companies and to apply for a postdoc position in any of the top EU academic
institutions. You will have a balance knowledge of Technology and Business
Models, and a set of relevant scientific publications, a PhD Degree (If
possible, a Double PhD Degree, International or Industry mention will be
established) and, potentially, International patents.
