TIK Centre for Technology, Innovation and Culture offer a 3 year fulltime Postdoctoral position in the Field of Energy Transitions. Ambitious policy goals of reaching net-zero Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by mid-century requires that transition processes increase in scope, depth, and speed. The postdoc will analyze how such goals can be achieved with a particular focus on carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).
The position is funded by two complementary research projects. First, the project “Socio-technical drivers, opportunities and challenges for large-scale CCUS (CaptureX) ” funds 1 year of the position. Second, the Norwegian Centre for Energy Transition Studies (NTRANS) funds 2 years of the postdoc position. The postdoc will be part of Research Area 2 entitled “Accelerating the Energy Transition” which is coordinated by the TIK Centre. For further information follow this link .
Most decarbonization scenarios assign a major role to rapid diffusion and scaling of CCUS. At the same time, most carbon capture technologies are rather immature, and needed infrastructure and markets for CO2 transport, storage and utilization remain underdeveloped. A new sociotechnical system for CO2 removal must be created across multiple sectors and countries for CCUS to diffuse. Such new system building is a major challenge for CCUS actors. Key topics across the projects include but are not limited to actor strategies for system building, policy missions, strategies, and mixes to support CCUS, or broader perspectives on the role of carbon removal in energy transitions. We expect that the postdoc project will involve collaborations with members of the funding research projects.
An extension for up to 3 months can be considered with the addition of teaching and administrative duties, depending on the competence of the applicant and the needs of the department.
