Argonne National Laboratory is seeking a dynamic and technically strong energy systems analyst at the RD2 or RD3 level to lead and contribute to life cycle assessment (LCA) and techno-economic analysis (TEA) studies of energy systems. This is a full-time staff position with the Systems Assessment Center’s Fuels and Products Group in the Energy Systems Division. Energy Systems Analysts develop a deep understanding of various fuel and product pathways including the processes involved in feedstock production, feedstock transportation, conversion, use, and end-of-life. They are also experts in the theory and practice of LCA and TEA.
The Energy Systems Analyst will work with other team members to analyze fuel and product systems to develop new models and datasets, and to provide rigorous and objective results. The analyst will collect and synthesize information to conduct LCA studies in the GREET modeling platform, manipulate large datasets to extract meaningful results, communicate results through well-designed presentations, publish journal articles and reports, and present results at conferences, workshops, and project meetings. The analyst will further develop the GREET model to provide quantitative results for the life-cycle energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, criteria air pollutant emissions, and water stress across the life cycles of fuels and products. The analyst will work closely with collaborators from other national labs, academia, and industry to understand complex systems and to incorporate new data in their models. The analyst will also contribute to annual updates of the GREET model through working with other researchers in the group to incorporate new and updated pathways into the GREET model.
The Fuels and Products Group supports DOE and other sponsors to assess the energy and environmental outcomes associated with fuels, products and integrated systems in order to guide R&D efforts, identify improvement opportunities, and to create new approaches for LCA/sustainability analysis to address emerging issues.
The Systems Assessment Center continues a 30-year history of leadership in the field of life cycle analysis. The Energy Systems Analyst will join project teams including experts in a variety of topics relevant to their work and will regularly collaborate with experts from Argonne as well as in industry and at other national laboratories. The Systems Assessment Center develops and maintains the Greenhouse Gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy Use of Technologies Model (GREET) which is widely used by government, industry, and academic stakeholders to provide objective and rigorous results (seehttp://greet.es.anl.gov).
