Job Title: Ph.D. Student – Energy Engineering

We seek highly motivated and skilled Ph.D. students to join our research team in the Department of Energy Management at the New York Institute of Technology. Our lab (i.e., the Energy and Green Technologies Laboratory) focuses on developing physics-based building energy models for individual or urban-scale projects. The successful candidate will have a strong background in Energy Engineering or a related field and a passion for research.



  • Conducting independent research under the supervision of a faculty advisor

  • Collaborating with other members of the research team on various projects

  • Designing tests, performing simulations, analyzing data, and presenting results at conferences and in  peer-reviewed publications

  • Attending and participating in lab meetings, seminars, and other relevant events

  • Assisting with the training of undergraduate and graduate students in the lab

  • Assisting with the writing of grant proposals



  • A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Civil Engineering, Architectural Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or a related field

  • Strong academic record with a minimum GPA of 3.5

  • Previous research experience in building energy modeling or a related field

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

  • Strong work ethic and ability to work independently as well as part of a team


Preferred qualifications:

  • Experience with physics-based building energy modeling and energy simulation engines such as EnergyPlus/DOE2 or interfaces such as DesignBuilder or OpenStudio

  • Experience with building systems such as HVAC, envelope, and lighting

  • Proficiency in programming and/or data analysis tools such as Python

  • Experience with statistical analysis and/or machine learning


We offer a competitive stipend and benefits package, and healthcare coverage. The Ph.D. student will have access to state-of-the-art research facilities and work in a collaborative and supportive environment.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Virtual Wind Farm Tour

We are seeking 3D modelers/game developers who can help us develop a virtual environment where users can experience a virtual tour of a wind farm. We have developed a model using Revit, 3D Studio Max, and Unity and the required skills to enhance our current model include:

  • Programming in Unity.

  • Develop 3D models in Revit/3D Studio Max.

  • Basic knowledge of wind turbines. (Provided in ENGY 670 course)

Customized Measures in OpenStudio

We are looking for programmers who can help us with writing OpenStudio measures. One of the features in OpenStudio is the capability of adding customized measures to obtain specific outputs and perform unique parametric studies in a building energy model. The required skills for this position include:

  • Writing scripts in Ruby.

  • Basic knowledge of building energy modeling (Provided in ENGY 730 course). (1).jpg
Data-Driven Building Energy Model

We are seeking computer scientists who are interested in data visualization and data mining. Our data includes building energy use, temperature, humidity, solar radiation, occupancy, human activities, HVAC properties, etc. The models could be based on supervised or unsupervised techniques for either residential or commercial buildings.

Data Mining on Building Energy Data

We are seeking computer scientists who are interested in performing statistical analysis on energy-related data for buildings in the US. The data set is based on EIA's report and we would need to obtain valuable information and visualize them. This information should give us more insight into building energy use in the US.
