The Centre for Sustainable Heritage at UCL is seeking to appoint a
Research Associate, qualified to Upper Second Class or higher
Physics, Chemistry or Engineering degree, PhD is desirable. The
roleholder will work on a heritage building simulation project,
focussing on increasing our understanding of energy consumption and
behaviour of heritage buildings in view of the changing climate and
the behaviour of historic materials stored in conditioned

Specifically they will:

    Develop building simulation models to understand the current
    operation of historic buildings

    Test the simulation models using a variety of scenarios: changes
    in the external environmental conditions, building structure,
    operation of the air-conditioning systems, the content, the
    occupancy and use of heritage buildings

    Measure and monitor the parameters needed to develop and test
    the model (Temperature, RH, ventilation rate, air infiltration

    Work closely with heritage organisations
