Mexican Ministry of Energy Fellowships with UCL Energy Institute

17 November 2014

The UCL Energy Institute, in partnership with the Mexican Ministry of Energy (SENER), are pleased to announce a call for Energy Post-Doctoral Fellowships.

Mexican Ministry of Energy Fellowships with UCL Energy Institute

UCL-Energy will be looking to host 3 post-doctoral fellowships that will work alongside UCL-Energy staff on a number of research energy-related topics.  

Research topics could be related to energy policy, energy systems, energy in buildings, energy and people, energy and transport, energy and climate change.

The Fellowships, coordinated via the Mexican Research Council (CONACYT), will provide support for post-doctoral posts for up to 3 years. The programme will support Mexican research to work with UCL Energy Institute during the fellowship period and will include salary and a research budget for equipment, travels, etc.

For details on eligibility requirements and application process, which are set out by CONACYT, further information can be found using the link below.

After reading through the call and application documents, prospective candidates can also contact Nelson Mojarro Gonzalez (nmojarro.fse@energia.gob.mx) and Ian Hamilton (i.hamilton@ucl.ac.uk) for further details.

Research focus

The fellowships should focus on a number of research topics related to energy and will align SENER sponsored post-doctoral researchers with experts at UCL Energy Institute.  Below are a number of topic areas and UCL researchers that can be contacted to discuss research topics.  Researchers and profiles are available on the UCL Energy Institute website.
