Project Title: Thermal energy storage technologies for commercial buildings for 
enhanced energy efficiency and resiliency

Thermal Systems Research Group headed by Dr. Anurag Goyal in the department of 
mechanical engineering at IIT Delhi invites applications for the post of Senior 
project scientist for the abovementioned project. The appointment duration will 
be until March 2024. The position can be considered for extension based on the 
candidate's performance and availability of funds.

A brief description of the project and the required qualifications are provided 

Project Description: Buildings consume a significant part of total energy in our 
economy (~30-40%), and a significant fraction of it is used for thermal end-
uses. This project will enhance the energy efficiency of commercial by 
developing and demonstrating thermal energy storage (TES) technologies for 
heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) and refrigeration 
applications. TES will benefit the commercial buildings by improving the 
integration of renewable energy sources through peak load shaving and enhancing 
the resiliency of the buildings in the events of blackouts and brownouts. We 
will develop detailed models of different TES system configurations in this 
project. We will also demonstrate these technologies through lab-scale 
experiments and pilot installations. We will develop intelligent controls to 
optimize the deployment of energy storage assets. 

Candidate Qualifications: Ph.D. or M. Tech. 1st class + 3 years of experience in 
mechanical/chemical/energy engineering or related discipline. The candidate 
should have demonstrated the ability to work independently on hardware-related 
engineering problems, project execution, and management. Preference will be 
given to candidates with prior experience in thermal systems engineering and 
HVAC and refrigeration. The candidate should demonstrate an understanding of the 
design, fabrication, selection and specification, installation, and operation of 
laboratory equipment typically used in thermal engineering labs (chillers, 
heaters, fluid flow loops (air and water), instrumentation for temperature, 
pressure, and flow rate, and system controls). The candidate should be skilled 
in using computer software such as LabVIEW and Microsoft Office, along with 
experimental analysis and computational tools and software. The candidate should 
also have good written and verbal communication skills.

Salary: Pay slab of INR 45,000 - 63,400 + applicable HRA rate
