The Graduate School SOM of the Faculty of Economics and Business has available two PhD positions on the topic “Optimization within the Energy Transition”.
Positions are located in the Department of Operations at the Faculty of Business and Economics, and require expertise in Operations Research. We also appreciate experience in Industrial Engineering and Data Analytics. This vacancy is part of a large, inter-disciplinary project, HEAVENN (Hydrogen Energy Applications for Valley Environments in Northern Netherlands), involving 31 public and private projects from six European countries. The consortium’s call application was supported by over 65 national and international parties from all over the world, including California, Japan and New Zealand. You will work together with dr. Evrim Ursavas, Albert Schrotenboer, prof. dr. Kees Jan Roodbergen and prof. dr. Iris Vis.
The project involves the large-scale production of green hydrogen as a feedstock for industry, storage, transportation and distribution of hydrogen and hydrogen applications in industry, the built environment and the mobility sector. We are looking for PhD candidates to investigate the opportunities and challenges related to energy transition. We focus on the situation where an integrated and systematic view of a hydrogen economy is established from the supply of renewable energy to the end use in industry, mobility and domestic use. This requires the design of an efficient hydrogen network that balances the needs and requirements of producers, distributers, controllers and end-users.
The envisioned contributions of the PhD projects are:
