Postdoctoral Fellow, Building Automation and Controls, IoT
We are looking for a highly motivated and passionate post-doctoral research fellow to work on a funded research project that looks into mixed-mode ventilation in the tropics. The aim of the research is to develop a real-time occupant centric sensing and control strategy that optimizes total building performance for mixed-mode ventilation in the tropics. The post-doctoral research fellow will be supervised by the principal investigator Dr. Adrian Chong from the Department of Building, School of Design and Environment, National University of Singapore.
Qualifications and Skills
- Ph.D. in Engineering, Computer science or related field.
- Proficiency (with a demonstrated track record) in IoT, building automation and controls.
- Proficiency in programming languages Python and/or R.
- Good communication skills, and an ability to present research in both academic and non-academic venues.
- Good scientific writing, communication and learning skills.
- Project management.
- Establish a method of measuring and retrieving real-time building operations (building management system data), indoor environmental quality (thermal comfort, air quality, and noise levels) and outdoor ambient conditions.
- Develop sensor and information fusion techniques for the purpose of effective mixed-mode ventilation controls.
- Investigate the sensor cost-information trade-offs for effective mixed-mode ventilation controls.
- Implement and validate the proposed mixed-mode controls framework in an actual testbed in an actual testbed and subsequently in an actual demonstration site.
- Document models and analysis tools on GitHub, or as required.
- Organize, analyze and publish research in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
- Perform other duties as assigned.
