Research Fellow / Senior Research Fellow in Energy and Input-Output

Would you like to join the largest national research centre on energy demand in the UK? Do you want to further your career by applying your quantitative analysis skills as part of a leading research group on energy, materials and economy modelling in one of the UK’s foremost research intensive universities? If so, this could be the opportunity for you.

Research: Exploring low energy demand futures for materials and products in the UK by applying MRIO models.

You will join a highly successful research group within the Sustainability Research Institute that conducts research on energy demand reduction and low carbon transitions using a range of modelling techniques such as Multi-Regional Input-Output Analysis (MRIO), macro-econometric models, energy and exergy analysis and scenario development. This position allows you to apply your knowledge of MRIO to specific applied policy relevant questions on the role of industry in achieving a low carbon future.

The team, led by Professor John Barrett, is funded under a new £19m 5 year initiative involving leading UK universities, entitled the UK Centre for Research on Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS). This is a substantial commitment by the UK Government to fund research to understand the drivers that determine our energy demand and the mechanisms by which to reduce it. The research team also hosts the Centre for Industrial Energy, Materials and Products ( and is a core partner of the UK Energy Research Centre ( You will be joining an established research group of 10 researchers from a wide range of disciplines including economics, engineering, mathematics, geography and environmental science. The research group has a very strong track record in publishing in many of the top peer-reviewed journals. You will be working to deliver the agreed work programme with the team.
