The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim represents academic eminence in technology and the natural sciences as well as in other academic disciplines ranging from the social sciences, the arts, medicine, teacher education, architecture to fine art.
The SmartGrid is envisioned as the future intelligent electricity delivery, production and consumption management system. It shall enable a more efficient house-holding with energy, reduce the consumption and allow a large variety of new and greener means of production. This pose a wide range of demanding research challenges involving power engineering, ICT and cybernetics. At NTNU we aim at establishing a national centre for SmarGrid research in co-operation with industries, public bodies and other actors.
To further increase our research in this area we would like to recruit 11 ph.d. fellows for 7 projects, spanning all of the Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering’s six departments:
* Computer and Information Science
* Electric Power Engineering
* Electronics and Telecommunications
* Engineering Cybernetics
* Mathematical Sciences
Application Deadline is January 15th, 2011
