PhD Scholarship in Energy and Environmental Systems

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in sustainable energy at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The funding allows successful candidate to work for two years. The deadline to apply is December 30, 2018.

The division of Energy Systems Analysis (dESA) at KTH was established in 2011 with a commitment to contribute to open accessible science. The division's goal ever since was to not only develop self-capacity but also get a broader community engaged. dESA aims at employing academic developments to inform smarter management of our planet, people and transitions from poverty to prosperity as in all of these, we believe, energy systems play a critical role. The division has primarily been involved in the development and application of quantitative models used to answer difficult policy and investment questions in the energy field. In this process, inter-linkages that influence trade-offs and synergies across the economic, social and environmental dimensions need to be identified and included. The research areas of the division spread through a) Energy Systems Model Development and Application b) Strategic policies and investment c) Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) and c) CLEWs – Climate, Land, Energy and Water strategies to navigate the nexus.

This position is expected to contribute to research development in the field of Sustainable Energy for All through participation in ongoing projects but also by establishing new relevant projects. The candidate will also be involved in education activities in existing courses at undergraduate and graduate level. The split between research and education is 80%/20% respectively.

1. Research and development of the OpeN Source Spatial Electrification Tool (OnSSET)

2. Contribution in electrification activities within the framework of collaboration with international organizations (The Wolrd Bank, United Nations, IEA, ESA)

3. Assistance in capacity building efforts in the use of the division’s toolkit OnSSET by authorities in industrializing countries

4. Support educational activities undertaken by KTH dESA (at undergraduate and graduate level).

The applicant should hold a Master's of Science degree in Sustainable Energy Engineering, or a similar degree.

In order to succeed as an doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work.

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle studies may be employed as a doctoral student. The term of the initial contract may not exceed one year and may thereafter be extended. Doctoral students may engage in teaching, research, and administration corresponding to a maximum of 20 % of a full-time position.

Apply for the position and admission through KTH’s recruitment system. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the application is complete in accordance with the instructions in the advertisement.

Applications must be received at the last closing date at midnight, CET/CEST (Central European Time/entral European Summer Time).
