Hi,

 

I would to ask you to circulate this PhD Description within your networks and the met-jobs mailing list.


PhD Position – The climate dimension and the physical principles of zero emission neighborhoods in Norway (three years fixed-term position)

 

Position Summary
A PhD research position is available at the Research Centre on Zero Emission Neighbourhoods in Smart Cities (ZEN Centre), at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), on the topic “The climate dimension and the physical principles of zero emission neighborhoods in Norway’’. 
This project aims to develop innovative resilient solutions at neighborhood scale optimizing the interaction of solar energy, daylight, ventilation, materials, building forms and local climate.

Specific Responsibilities
The PhD research will pursue the following objectives:

·         Analyze the pattern and size of neighborhood types (morphology, land cover, geometry, and structure), the properties of materials used and climatic data;

·         Advance numerical simulations to analyze the impact of materials and microclimate on the zero emission energy balance at neighborhood scale;

·         Elaborate the impact of microclimatic parameters and physical properties of the urban fabric on the energy performance of zero emission neighborhoods;

·         Develop solutions for optimal environmental quality of the zero emission neighborhoods (by reducing their exposure to climate-related risks). Define countermeasures for the climate adaptation to enhance the transition to a low carbon society and support decisions of urban planning professionals
