11 Ph.D. Fellowships in Smart Grid Research
The SmartGrid is envisioned as the future intelligent electricity delivery, production and consumption management system. It shall enable a more efficient house-holding with energy, reduce the consumption and allow a large variety of new and greener means of production. This pose a wide range of demanding research challenges involving power engineering, ICT and cybernetics. At NTNU we aim at establishing a national centre for SmarGrid research in co-operation with industries, public bodies and other actors.
To further increase our research in this area we would like to recruit 11 ph.d. fellows for 7 projects, spanning all of the Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering’s six departments:
•Computer and Information Science
•Electric Power Engineering
•Electronics and Telecommunications

For further information about the projects and fellowships, see http://ime.ntnu.edu/research/smartgrid
Within the application, it should be clearly stated for which fellowships it is applied, by indicating project(s) A – G, and for projects with more fellowships, for which fellowship, e.g. A.1 – A.3. If it is applied for more than one fellowship, the applicant’s priorities with respect to the fellowships must be stated.
Applicants from non-English speaking countries outside of Europe must document a TOEFL score of 600 or higher or a score of 100 or higher if the on-line test is being used.
The goal of the announced position is to obtain a PhD degree, hence the successful applicant must be enrolled as a PhD student at NTNU, please see http://www.ntnu.edu/ime/research/phd for information about PhD education at NTNU.
NTNUs PhD-rules require a Master degree or equivalent with at least 5 years of studies and an average grade of A or B within a scale of A-E for passing grades (A best). Candidates from universities outside Norway are kindly requested to send a Diploma Supplement or a similar document, which describes in detail the study and grade system and the rights for further studies associated with the obtained degree:
The position is placed in salary code 1017, which currently corresponds to a yearly gross income of NOK 383 700 (pay scale level 48). From this 2 % will be deducted for mandatory membership in the National Pension Fund.
The appointment will be made in accordance with current regulations with supplementary rules for research fellowship appointments in universities and polytechnics. Applicants must agree to participate in organized doctoral study programs within the period of the appointment. The successful applicant must agree to the conditions laid down for public employees.
Candidates will be required to enroll in a PhD program within the period of employment, and must sign a contract regulating the period of employment.
According to Norwegian policies, the government workforce should, as closely as possible, reflect the diversity of the population at large. It is therefore a goal of NTNU, as a government institution, to have a workforce which is balanced with respect to gender, and to recruit persons of immigrant background. NTNU also wishes to increase the number of women on its workforce, and women are specifically encouraged to apply.
The application must include information about education, exams and earlier experience. Certified copies of certificates and diplomas must be enclosed. Relevant scientific works should be submitted. Joint works will be taken into account. In cases where it is difficult to determine the applicant’s contribution, a short note of explanation should be supplied.
Applications are to be submitted electronically through this page. Preferably, we want the attachments in one file.
Applications should be marked: IME 045-2010.
Application deadline: January 15th, 2011.
