Overview

PhD candidate position in CO2 neutral buildings‘ energy demand analysis

Open application for a doctoral candidate in Mechanical and Civil Engineering
The doctoral candidate position is available in the Environmental Engineering faculty Department of Building Energetics. Applicants interested in other research topics related to Building Energy are also welcome to apply.

Research topic description
Primary energy consumption in buildings accounts for about half of all energy produced in the European Union. Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEBs) are defined in EU regulations as energy-efficient, low-energy and renewable energy (RES) buildings.
Based on the actual consumption of energy systems, validate the thermodynamic models of a zero CO2 building and evaluate the dependence of primary energy needs and climatic conditions.

The selected candidate will work on the PhD thesis under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. dr. Kęstutis Valančius. The successful applicant will have to attend scientific conferences, meetings and internships in the other universities.


Requirements
• Required background: Building structures heat balance, heat and mass transfer, energy demands.
• Expected skills and knowledge: Building and its energy systems simulation and mathematical analysis.
It is a prerequisite you can be present at and accessible to the institution daily.

For more information
Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview. The position may not be opened if no qualified candidate is found. Additional information regarding the post may be obtained from Assoc. Prof. dr. Kęstutis Valančius, e-mail: kestutis.valancius@vilniustech.lt
