PhD Opportunity: Investigation of alternative generation technologies for wave energy

University of Edinburgh

Closing date Thursday, 31 January 2019

Wave Energy Scotland (WES) has identified a range of potential alternative technologies for the conversation of wave energy to utility-scale electricity. This project, which will be supported by WES, will add scientific rigor by adding structure, depth and analysis to create a structured technology development roadmap for the most attractive of these technologies.

The scope of the project includes:

  •     Development of a bespoke structured innovation approach to alternative technologies with appropriate analysis tools for evaluation and down selection
  •     Review existing studies, wider literature review and identification of candidate technologies using assessment tools
  •     Detailed physical and techno-economic analysis of candidate technology characteristics and identification of R&D requirements
  •     Structured innovation approach to creating wave energy converter architectures to optimally exploit the alternative power conversion technology
  •     Production (and external review) of technology development roadmap

This project will be hosted within the Policy and Innovation Group of the Institute for Energy Systems and supported by Wave Energy Scotland and Energy Technology Partnership.

To apply

Royal Society Postdoctoral Research Associate in Molecular Materials (Job Ref: 7121)

Avestro Group
Department of Chemistry, University of York

Appointment: Full-time (flexible); 12-months fixed-term (opportunity to extend)
Salary: £32,236—£39,609 p.a.
Closing date: 30 November 2018 / Interview date: 19 December 2018 / Start date: ASAP

The Role
The successful candidate will join the Avestro Group and conduct excellent research on the development of ‘‘Three-Dimensionally Conjugated Organic & Hybrid Materials for Efficient Electron Transport." They will lead the design of new multi-electron acceptor materials with precisely oriented molecular-level π-interactions of its redox centres. Emphasis is placed on molecular/crystal structure–electrochemical property analysis and correlation. The initial stages of the project will concern the synthesis and structural characterisation of redox-active organic molecular and/or coordination materials (which may include metal-organic frameworks (MOFs)) featuring unique three-dimensional (i.e., radial) π-conjugation. As the research progresses, postdoctoral activities will evolve to pursue the evaluation of the most promising materials within solid-state organic electronic applications, e.g., alongside collaborators.
