Job Description

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Transportation & Hydrogen Systems Center is seeking a data analyst post doc for research and development of hydrogen production and delivery infrastructure and fuel cell systems. This position supports research and development addressing hydrogen infrastructure needs at the component and systems level for hydrogen stations, identifying research needs for the future hydrogen stations, fuel cell systems performance, and electrolyzer testing for grid integration applications. The research on hydrogen infrastructure includes but is not limited to accelerated component testing and station design and integration testing and code and standards development that supports the hydrogen station needs for production fuel cell electric vehicles. The research for fuel cells includes but is not limited to fuel cell testing for grid integration applications, code and standards development, performance, durability, and reliability analysis to support fuel cell applications that provide valuable operation features for transportation and stationary sectors. Tasks may include:

  • Project incorporates novel and holistic approach to building energy management and component sizing using model predictive control theory for energy dispatch.
  • Formulate and implement optimization routine for sizing building components in a fuel cell integrated building.
  • Design test scenarios for an integrated building planning tool and energy dispatch controller to 1) validate optimization routines and 2) demonstrate functionality.
  • Technology validation of a suite of hydrogen and fuel cell projects employs big data analysis on real world data sets.
  • Do advanced fuel cell degradation analysis on real world data to identify factors and characterize accelerated test procedures that can correlate to real world degradation.
  • Develop trend analyses and predictive tools on real world data from hydrogen refueling stations and fuel cell application.
