Research Project Manager 

Position Summary

The mission of HYSTORE is to develop and validate an innovative set of TES concepts, based on the combination of cutting-edge technology components, namely, ALL-IN-ONE PCM solution, LOW-TEMP PCM HEATING&COOLING solution, PCM HEATING solution and TCM HEATING&COOLING solution. The four novel concepts –attain different but thorough applications on H/C, DHW configurations, and further enable the provision of hybrid – meaning energy and power- services. It follows the current European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) that promotes the implementation of thermal storage technologies, to increase the share of renewable energy systems (RES) or variable renewable energy (VRE). It also encourages TES as an enabler to improve the flexible and reliable operation of building both power and thermal systems as decentralized energy resources, exploiting the increasing share of renewables, context maximizing the exploitation and harnessing local RES generation and electrical grid peak load shedding and management. 4 use case applications in different climates both for District Heating/Cooling connected and non DHC-connected buildings with high-impact and replication potential. Regarding cost-effectiveness, the aim of HYSTORE is to achieve technological advancement of thermal energy storage (TES) with up to +150% energy density and -50% CAPEX compared to state-of-the-art.

Applications are invited from suitably experienced candidates for the post of HYSTORE Research Manager in the UCD School of Computer Science. Working with the UCD PI and the consortium partners, Research Manager will provide support in the development of the project. The administrator will have strong project management skills and will be required to manage the HYSTORE HORIZON project in addition to administrative duties.
