We are pleased to announce two full-time Research Associate posts in Residential Energy Demand (3 years) based in the OISD Low Carbon Building Group at the School of Architecture in Oxford Brookes University (Oxford, UK).
The posts are funded through the EPSRC / DST Newton-Bhabha funded UK-India research project – RESIDE (Residential building energy demand reduction in India). The four year RESIDE project aims to assess all aspects of the residential energy use problem, including performance of the building fabric; in-home appliances; indoor environment and occupant behaviour, underpin a residential building energy code for high-quality, low-energy housing across all five climatic zones in India. More information about the RESIDE project is available here - https://www.brookes.ac.uk/about-brookes/news/researchers-receive-major-grant-to-help-improve-the-energy-efficiency-of-millions-of-homes-in-india/
Closing date is 18 March 2018
The Low Carbon Building (LCB) Group at Oxford Brookes University has a strong international reputation in the field of carbon mapping (RIBA award-winning DECoRuM model), building performance evaluation, climate change adaptation of buildings and low carbon communities. RESIDE builds on ongoing India research by the LCB Group, including the United Nations funded project 'Mainstreaming sustainable social housing in India’ which seeks to promote sustainability as an integral part of social housing, and the recently launched Newton Fund supported Learn-BPE project on evaluating the actual performance of green buildings in India.
