The ideal candidate will hold a PhD in power systems engineering or a related discipline, and will have significant experience of modelling power systems using industry standard software tools. The candidate should have a track record of research excellence and should have existing publications (or be able to demonstrate the ability to publish) in the top international journals in the field, including IEEE PES Transactions. Experience of carrying out research projects in collaboration with industry partners and grant proposal writing would also be an advantage.
