Postdoc in Modelling of Resource Recovery Processes

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in fluid mechanics to join Technical University of Denmark, Denmark. All candidates regardless of citizenship are eligible to apply before June 24, 2019.

A2 year postdocposition,starting1 July2019, isavailable to: (i) develop plant-wide models of resource recovery operations in wastewater treatment plants; (ii) collect and process full-scale data in close collaboration with partners in South-Africa; (iii) calibrate models with the available data, and perform model-based optimization of resource recovery operations in full-scale wastewater treatment plants; and, (iv) evaluate recovery options using life cycle assessment methods.

Thepostdocproject is part of theERASE (Evaluation of Resource recovery Alternatives in South African treatment systems) projectfunded by the DANIDA Fellowship Center,and Professor Krist V. Gernaey and Senior Researcher Xavier Flores-Alsinawill supervise it.

The successful candidate will join an innovative, collaborative, international and multidisciplinary team within the Process and Systems Engineering Research centre (PROSYS) at the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at DTU. During the project, there will be close collaboration with The University of Cape Town (South Africa), The University of KwaZulu Natal (South Africa) and different South African water utilities (City of Cape Town, Ethekwini municipality).

For a successful development and progress of the ERASE project, DTU will make use of mathematical models in Matlab/Simulink. One of the main goals of this research project is to apply the models to practical cases, and to use model-based optimization for comparing the usefulness and economic value of different resource recovery alternatives.

Consequently, the research activities in the proposed postdocproject, assume that you are able to: Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender,disability, race, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.

The Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at DTU is a leader in innovative teaching and research, built on core technical subjects and engineering scientific disciplines. The teaching and research cover separation processes, reaction engineering, dynamics and process regulation, process and facility planning, unit operations, heat transmission, fluid mechanics and applied thermodynamics. The Department enjoys very close relations with international partners, and especially a wide range of industrial companies DTU is a technical university providing internationally leading research, education, innovation andscientific advice.
