Dear All,

Eurac Research is an applied research center based in Bozen, northern Italy.

We are looking for a researcher in the field of energy efficient and flexible buildings that will mainly work on the definition and assessment of technical solutions for high efficient constructions. The aim of this researcher will be to collaborate within the projects and the activities of the Energy Efficient Buildings Group, with a focus on the definition and analysis of the solution sets for reaching the plus Energy House and high indoor environmental quality targets in different climate contexts across Europe.


The researcher will work on:

  *   The definition of metrics and indicators for characterizing Plus Energy Houses
  *   The set-up and perform of modelling and simulation activity for assessing the performances of different solutions sets across Europe
  *   The preparation of parametric models for fine-tuning and optimizing the solution sets according to different boundary conditions across EU
  *   The evaluation of the flexibility potential of each solution set with a special focus on the energy demand profile according to external forcing factors (i.e. availability of renewable energy available on site, CO2 content of the energy mix)
  *   The evaluation of the cost-optimality of the solution sets during the life cycle, with a focus on the increased building value due to energy efficiency


  *   Technical degree and preferably PhD (Engineering, Physics or equivalent)
  *   Knowledge on building physics
  *   Experience in building simulations and parametric modelling with transient tools (i.e. TRNSYS or Energy Plus or equivalent)
  *   Knowledge of construction and technology solutions of energy efficient buildings
  *   Ability to carry out the activities autonomously with a constant collaboration with the team
  *   Excellent written and spoken English skills; knowledge of either Italian or German (both is a plus)
  *   Knowledge of technical-economic analysis and property value estimation

We offer:

  *   The chance to work with local and international research centers, universities and industry partners
  *   The opportunity to work in a young international team in a fast growing sector
  *   Working conditions which allow professional growth and know how acquisition with carrier opportunity as applied researcher
  *   The position is initially available for a period of three years with the concrete possibility to be extended towards a permanent contract.

How to apply:

Interested candidates should submit their application (CV, cover letter and further relevant documents) by 15.11.2019 to the following address (email, mail, or fax):
