Research Associate in Simulation and Market Design for Smart Local Energy Systems

This Research Associate position will contribute to the project “EnergyREV - Market Design for Scaling Up Local Clean Energy Systems” within the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh, which is being completed as part of the multi-institute and interdisciplinary Energy Revolution Research Consortium. The successful candidate will be responsible for research, focusing on the challenge of integrating new local markets for peer-to-peer energy trading and distribution system flexibility into power system operations. This will involve the application of advanced methods from multi-agent control, stochastic optimisation and game theory. The project will include the development of a simulation platform to analyse the real-time interactions between local and system-level energy markets (operating in parallel at different time scales and physical scales), using Edinburgh’s high-performance computing facilities.
This role is full time and fixed term until 31st March 2022.
Salary: £33,797 to £40,322 per annum
