• ARPA-E is seeking candidates for a number of openings in Washington, D.C.: senior advisor for technical assessment and impact; program director; technology to market advisors; ARPA-E fellows and technology-to-market scholars.
• PCM manufacturer RGEES has posted an opening for a production technician at its plant in Arden, N.C.
• Software maker COMSOL outlines a procedure for thermally modeling a material with hysteresis, which means that the melting temperature is different from the solidification temperature.
• Global investment in renewable energy hit a record $286 billion in 2015, according to a report from the United Nations Environment Program. Developing economies accounted for nearly 55 percent of the total. It's a different story in Europe, evidently. The Guardian reports that the clean technology industry there "has fallen into a rapid decline, with investment in low-carbon energy last year plummeting to its lowest level in a decade."
