reactietermijn vacature verstreken - Researcher Energy systems modeller / Energy innovation
Energie Onderzoek Centrum Nederland

Your position

The candidate will contribute to the development and analysis of long-term scenarios of global and regional energy systems, notably under stringent climate change constraints and with varying fossil fuel prices. The main tool used is the MARKAL/TIMES modelling framework, in particular TIAM-ECN, a bottom-up technology-rich linear optimisation model of the global energy system. Part of the work will also be the quantitative techno-economic analysis of specific energy technologies and innovation processes. The role of deployment (learning-by-doing) and R&D (learning-by-searching) as major drivers for the required cost reductions for innovative energy technologies may also be part of the work. These approaches are applied in research projects as well as strategic advisory work for policy makers and industry. The candidate will carry out projects in an interdisciplinary team of researchers. In addition, he or she will assist in coordinating activities and stay in close contact with an international network of scientists working on energy policy, climate change and energy security issues. Important tasks will also be to publish and disseminate research results, both in the international academic community and for policy makers across the world as well as for representatives from industry. The candidate will also contribute to formulating new subjects of investigation and participate in the acquisition of future projects, with an increasing focus on regions such as Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.

Your profile

We are looking for a qualified scientist in the natural, economic, or environmental sciences, with demonstrable expertise in the long-term integrated assessment modelling of energy systems and quantitative analysis of policy questions in the field of energy innovation and technology. The successful candidate possesses outstanding research, writing and communication skills. He or she has affinity with energy and environment policy, is a good team player, and has experience in the management of research projects.
