About the position

The Department of Energy and Process Engineering has a vacancy for a 3-year PhD position in indoor environment quality and energy monitoring with different advanced building envelopes.

The position has reservation on financial support from the H2020 iClimabuilt project: Functional and advanced insulating and energy harvesting/storage materials across climate adaptive building envelopes (EU project number 952886).

The Department of Energy and Process Engineering is seeking a PhD candidate for a research project within the area of long-term monitoring approach for indoor air quality and energy performance with different advanced building envelopes.

The position as a PhD candidate is a fixed - term position.  For a position as a PhD Candidate, the goal is a completed doctoral education up to an obtained doctoral degree, which requires a high level of research-based competence. The starting date for the position February 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position will be part of the Sustainable Energy Systems research group at EPT.


The Head of Department is Professor Terese Løvås. The PhD candidate will be supervised by Professor Guangyu Cao and Prof. Hans Martin Mathisen, Prof. Francesco Goia, and will form part of the team of researchers from NTNU.

Background

EU 2030 targets aim at least 40% cuts in greenhouse gas emissions (from 1990 levels), at least 32% share for renewable energy, at least 32.5% improvement in energy efficiency, and 80% reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. Therefore, an urgent need is present for a deep market transformation by deploying efficient materials and technologies in the construction sector to support the real implementation of nearly zero-energy/ emission and plus-energy buildings with high indoor environment quality across Europe. Many of the current materials and technical systems still have varying degree of difficulty in accomplishing a circular perspective. Material and technical system development in a ZEB framework should focus on building thermal performance improvement, high quality of indoor environment (IEQ) according to occupants’ comfort and health needs, while reducing the emission intensity in terms of production, maintenance, assembling and operation.



Further information

The position is funded from the H2020 iClimatbuilt project: Functional and advanced insulating and energy harvesting/storage materials across climate adaptive building envelopes (EU project numer 952886).
