Job opening for district energy system simulation R&D at Berkeley Lab in Berkeley, CA

Contract Type: 

Berkeley Lab’s Simulation Research Group ( has an opening for a Principal Scientific Engineering Associate.
The Context:
The new generations of district heating and cooling systems and building control technologies bring forth brand new challenges in the field of modeling and simulation. The ability to simulate with the same numerical model detailed control, temperature and pressure transients as well as typical yearly operation for energy analysis requires a deep rethinking of the way energy systems are modeled and complex DAE systems are solved. This position is right at the center of this major innovation, expected to grow new practices and feed better designs.
What You Will Do:
You will provide technical expertise and scientific support for the implementation and deployment of Modelica- and FMI-based modeling and simulation tools for buildings and district energy systems. The work will primarily address the modeling, numerical and computational challenges of large systems simulation at the district scale. It will also support the technological development of the latest generation of district heating and cooling systems that operate a loop near ground temperature and provide a means for buildings to share waste heat and cold.
Besides you will contribute to the redesign of EnergyPlus to allow Modelica and FMI-based HVAC and controls simulation.
