The Huddersfield Smart House Research Facility is a multi-disciplinary research centre bringing together researchers, practitioners, industry and government organisations to design, develop and implement holistic solutions for current and future societal challenges associated with the building environment. A well instrumented two storey dwelling has been constructed that will provide facilities for a range of novel and innovative investigations to be carried out.

A highly motivated and creative individual is required for the post of Research Fellow – Smart House. You will work, as part of a multi-disciplinary team, in the research project entitled ‘Leading the way in Smart home research and innovation’. This is an exciting multidisciplinary project which will address multi-dimensional societal challenges related to homes. The project is core funded by the University of Huddersfield over a 3-year period in the first instance. Our work is expected to contribute to exploring the role of technology in tackling fuel poverty, health in the home, and user-centred design of smart technologies. We are working with a range of external partners on this project and will work across a number of university research centres, institutes and initiatives.

You will be involved in delivering research across a number of work packages as follows:

– The interface of Technology Enhanced Healthcare and SMART Housing.

– Edge Integration, Interpretation, and Intelligence (EI3) Framework for IoT-driven Smart Environments.

– The development of a digital twin technology for smart house applications focussed on thermal comfort and energy efficiency.

It is expected that you will have research experience in smart housing technologies especially in mechatronic systems with applications including computer science and artificial intelligence. We encourage competent and talented individuals to apply for the post and are open to different specialisms. You will have an interest in cross disciplinary research and a PhD qualification in Mechatronics or cognate discipline. The aim is to support you to develop into a strong smart house researcher and will work with the multi-disciplinary team to develop their skillsets across physical and health sciences.

You will be joining a dedicated, passionate and forward-thinking team and will be expected to demonstrate excellence in your work, which will be strongly supported through personal development plans.
