Research & Development Engineer (Digital Substations) 311777
 

Salary range: £32,817 - £40,322 per annum
FTE: 1.0
Term: Open-ended
Closing date: 20/08/2020

The PNDC seeks to appoint a Research Engineer with the ambition, talent and drive to develop and test new network technologies and smart grid solutions in its unique, world-class industry-scale facility.

The PNDC is formally linked to the University of Strathclyde through the Institute for Energy and Environment within the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering.

The successful candidate will work as part of a growing dynamic team on a wide range of projects with particular emphasis on experimental validation and testing of technologies in support of the our Digital Substations Research Focus Area.

These activities will lead our industry stakeholders into the next generation of distribution network substations that enable a greater integration of DER and customer participation, which are underpinned by high fidelity substation data, secure and resilient communication architectures and intelligent monitoring, control and protection functions.

To be considered for the role, you should possess the knowledge, skills and experience normally associated with a PhD in a relevant field or you will be educated to Honours Degree level with relevant industrial experience. You will have advanced knowledge of electrical power systems and the protection and control systems used in distribution and transmission networks, and be capable of applying this knowledge in a highly practical environment. You will have experience of leading the delivery of research and development projects in collaboration with industry or in an industrial context and you will have good technical writing ability and strong communication skills. You must be a self-starter, and able to plan and conduct individual research and knowledge exchange activities with minimal supervision, as well as generate new ideas and concepts, with the capacity to work in a dynamically changing team environment.
