Description

We are hiring two PhD students to work with us at The University of
Adelaide in Australia on the mining mobile fleet electrification. The
project is funded by Future Battery Industries Cooperative Research Centre collaborating with several companies and state
governments agencies. 

It is an intellectually challenging and extremely important project for the
resource sector in Australia. We want to provide the Australian mining
industry with a suite of decision-making tools and information that will
aid their transition towards the use of battery-supported electric vehicles
(BEVs) and associated stationary machinery in their mining operations. Your
contributions to this work would help a critical industry achieve its
net-zero emission goal and cost reduction with a tangible impact on the
climate and the health of mining workers.

Candidates with an Australian equivalent first-class honours degree (or a
master’s degree) in *electrical engineering*, *operations research*, *applied
mathematics*, or *computer science* with experience in power systems and
e-transportation are encouraged to apply. The opportunities are valued at
A$35K pa stipend + A$5K pa research allowance. Please see more details at:
