|Language of description
|| The Research Associate will be expected to contribute primarily to a programme of work being undertaken as part of an EPSRC-funded national research centre, the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC). The EPRG will be involved in all aspects of the Systems & Policy Theme within the Centre working closely with engineering colleagues at Imperial College and economic modelling colleagues at University College London, as well as others across the Centre as necessary. The overarching goal of EPRG's component is to improve the economic modelling of options for deep decarbonisation, and, in particular, the decarbonisation of heat in addition to electricity.
A PhD in a related area such as energy economics, techno-economic modelling, applied economics, operations research or systems engineering is essential and additional knowledge or background in adjacent areas such as energy and climate policy or econometrics is not necessary but would be desirable. In addition, good writing skills and attention to detail are important to complete project tasks. The candidate will work closely with researchers at Imperial College and UCL, but they should be able to work independently and may also contribute to other aspects of the work of EPRG.
