Our Research Lab, the Coastal Environment Research Group (The Coastal Urban Environmental Research Group – The Coastal Urban Environmental Research Group (cuny.edu)), has a research internship opportunity in Building Energy Load Forecasting.    Energy Load Forecasting is an emerging field, which anticipates mean and peak loads as function of weather and energy usage from buildings.  The research in case will apply CUERG developed energy forecast tools and principles to the test case of a major campus, interfacing the anticipated loads to the mechanical equipment for load management in demand response scenarios.

The research internship will start this summer 2021, and may continue through the academic year, subject to performance.  The research compensation may range between $1,500-$2,500/month.  The research is funded by the NY State Energy Development Agency (NYSERDA).

Prefer qualifications of the intern includes an advanced UG, or MS student of CCNY, with solid background in heat transfer and fluid mechanics, prefer with HVAC training and/or building energy management, and good programming skills in Matlab and/or python.  If you are interested, please send an email of interest to Prof. J. González (jgonzalezcruz@ccny.cuny.edu ), along with 1-page resume.

The Coastal-Urban Environmental Research Group affiliated to the NOAA-CREST Center at the City College of New York (CCNY)  (http://cuerg.ccny.cuny.edu ) has an opening for a graduate research fellowship effective Fall 2020 for a Master or Ph.D.  degree.  The research to be conducted will imply the development of modeled and satellite based thermal index products for cities with applications for public health and energy demands.   The research fellowship will be for a minimum of two years for MS degree, or up to 5-years for doctoral studies.  The fellowship includes full tuition and annual stipend ranging between $18,000 for master studies to $36,000 for doctoral students.

Qualifications:  Students with undergraduate or master degrees in mechanical, chemical, or environmental engineering, or physics or atmospheric sciences are welcome to apply.   Students must be US citizens to qualify for the fellowship and have graduated with a minimum of 3.0 from undergraduate studies.  Students from under-represented background are particularly encouraged to apply.   Qualified students can pursue master degree in mechanical or environmental engineering at CCNY, or doctoral studies in mechanical engineering at CCNY.

Interested students should contact Prof. Jorge E. Gonzalez; jgonzalezcruz@ccny.cuny.edu, and include resume in the communication.
