Postdoctoral Fellow/Systems Engineer

Job Code: R_00013599

Purpose: This study will document the impacts across each segment of the supply chain across the expected life of a generation facility (mining raw materials to decommissioning), compare these impacts across electricity generation options, assign costs to each, and then aggregate from generation plant level to power system level in a flexible model that can be analyzed against different technology enhancements in different locations; to uncover critical metrics and crossover points for different energy mix scenarios’ cost, efficiency, reliability, and earth impact (air, land, and water) in different geographic locations.

Functions: Perform original and independent research on modeling the full life cycle cost and environmental impact of an electric generation facility in west Texas, with the ability to model different energy mix scenarios to optimize the cost, reliability, economic, and environmental impact. Conduct sensitivity analysis on the impact of future technical roadmaps for energy generation to guide the energy transition to include renewable sources.Support team efforts and manage students’ efforts on creating detailed electric generation supply chain mapping for the predominant natural gas, solar, wind, and battery electric generation/supply technologies. Present research results to funding agencies, report results of research in journal articles and books, and present results at professional meetings.
