Opportunity for PostDoc funding for academic year 2022

The Chalmers Area of Advance Energy is offering to provide support for a PostDoc position within the profile Electricity for Societal Development. The grant is of 1.2 Mkr for 2022 and may be extended for 2023.
We now invite you to submit ideas within the research theme energy storage and flexibility.
 Applications must be submitted no later than May the 30th, 2021.  The selected Postdoc project is expected to start in January 2022.
Tomorrow's electric power systems must drastically change in order to become sustainable and efficient,
meeting at the same time the changing societal challenges and demands. The aim of Electricity for Societal
Development is to lead of this process by proposing, investigating and evaluating new solutions for
reinforcing and transforming the power system and its associated infrastructures. The project application
must have the electricity systems in focus and be clearly linked to the research agenda of the profile.

The application should address energy storage and flexibility from the perspective of one of the following thematic areas:
  • Technology focus, including materials, testing and LCA;
  • Sector coupling focus, including process simulation for flexibility in industry;
  •  Electricity system focus, including power system control and flexible electricity generation;
  • Information focus, including use of information technology for system optimization, reliability/resiliency improvement, reduced need for energy storage.

In order to strengthen the collaborations at Chalmers and stimulate multidisciplinary projects, we especially appreciate research initiatives with potential to link different research groups. Thus,applications addressing energy storage on one thematic area with plans for collaboration with energy storage research on another thematic area (another application or ongoing research) will be prioritized.
Connection to other ongoing projects as well as indications for future funding possibilities are considered as figures of merit for the application.

The selected Postdoc project is expected to start in January 2022.
The funding application (maximum 2 pages) should be written in English.

Applications must be submitted no later than May the 30th, 2021.

Please send your application to:
 Massimo Bongiorno massimo.bongiorno@chalmers.se or Lisa Göransson lisa.goransson@chalmers.se

If you need any further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact either Massimo or Lisa for more information.
