Qualification Details

The two positions and roles have expected profiles outlined below:


You are expected to have at least three years of work experience from modelling of energy systems, energy trading, scheduling or similar. Preferably experience from project related work and management. Experience from model implementation in Python, Matlab, GAMS or similar software is considered an advantage. Suitable educational backgrounds are MSc or higher in electrical engineering, energy systems, economics, financial economics, or applied mathematics. A PhD degree in a relevant field is considered an advantage although not mandatory.


Candidates are expected to have several years of research experience in electricity markets. A suitable educational background is a PhD degree (or MSc with a strong research record) in electrical engineering with focus on markets, alternatively in economics with focus on energy or electricity. Previous research experience should include mathematical modelling as well as model implementation in software such as Matlab, Python, GAMS or similar.

Both profiles are proactive, creative, open to new challenges and collaboration oriented. The ability to independently lead processes and projects is considered central to these positions, but especially for the role as researcher. The work will involve contacts with external project partners and customers, and applicants should therefore have strong communicative skills.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The electric power system is foreseen to play a vital future role through e.g., the electrification of industry and transport sectors, significantly increasing the demand of electricity and requiring large investments in generation, transmission and distribution, as well as in storage and digitalisation. RISE contributes to this development with analyses and solutions by initiating and conducting research, innovation and development projects in collaboration with companies, utilities, universities and public actors.

About the roles

RISE has increasing activities within electric power systems with an expanding portfolio of research and innovation projects combining technical and economic perspectives. The transition of the energy and electric power system raises new challenges and opportunities, and we are experiencing a growing demand of applied research.

We now have two open positions to strengthen our capability to initiate, lead and perform high quality research in electricity market economics, design and trading.


In this role you are expected to contribute to conduct research projects by developing models and performing analyses regarding electricity trading and scheduling. Apart from modelling and analyses tasks, this position can also include supervision and project management. You are expected to participate in designing new projects and to communicate with stakeholders, existing and potential collaboration partners, customers and funding agencies.


You are expected to contribute with method development concerning market simulations, as well as conducting simulation and analyses applying new advanced methods. This position has an extra attention to market design aspects, and how to assess the impact of various market design options on incentives and welfare through modelling and simulation. You are also expected to contribute to the development process of new research projects, writing research proposals and to initiate research collaborations with universities and other institutes.
