Senior Researcher or DTU Tenure Track Researcher in Energy Storage Systems - DTU Wind
Would you like to take part in the green transition and pioneer the development of energy storage systems in the future renewable-based energy system? Then a position as Senior Scientific Research/DTU Tenure Track Researcher with us may be the opportunity for you.
DTU Wind and Energy Systems invites applicants for a position as Senior Research or Tenure Track Researcher in Energy Storage System to strengthen our competences in the field.
We offer a vibrant, welcoming, and diverse environment with an international atmosphere, encouraging creativity, empathy, team working, superb academic collaborations, and outstanding links to the front-running Danish energy sector.
Responsibilities and qualifications
Your overall focus will be to strengthen the department’s competences within modeling, optimization and system integration of new energy storage system (EES) technologies. In this position you will contribute to research in modelling of energy storage systems and their system integration, and in particular battery energy storage integration and hybridization with electrolyzer systems. You will also be able to contribute to our related research within electrolyzer plants. Further, you will contribute to teaching, attracting funding as well as project management of an increasing portfolio of ESS projects. You will work closely with colleagues in a fast-developing team, that is involved in many ESS and hydrogen/Power-to-X research activities and with close relations to leading industrial actors.
Your responsibilities will be to:
- Conduct research in energy storage systems, its system integration and hybridization with electrolyzers and other technologies
- Managing ESS-related projects in collaboration with industry and academic
- Contribute to modelling, control, testing and system integration of EES
- Supervise BSc, MSc and PhD students and contribute to courses and other educational
- Attract funding for your research with support from the department

You will be part of our Section for Power-to-X and Storage in the Division for Power and Energy Systems. The section is rapidly expanding its activities within ESS integration. Currently our activities cover grid integration and hybridization of battery energy storage system (BESS), thermal storage (TES) and electrolyser-fuel cell systems. As a person we expect that you find it natural to collaborate with your colleagues, are open-minded, and like to actively engage in the activities of the section.
We expect you to have experience with energy storage system modelling, control and integration, and an academic background in electrical, chemical, or control engineering - or other relevant fields.
