Two PhD Scholarships in Process Modelling of Co2 Conditioning Liquefaction and Compression

A new PhD position in fluid mechanics is available at Technical University of Denmark. The funds for this fellowship are available for 4 years. Potential candidates should apply before August 31, 2019.

The Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, Center for Energy Resources Engineering (CERE), invites applicants for two PhD positions in the area of process modelling of CO conditioning - liquefaction and compression."

The PhD projects are part of the "3D" project (DMX TM Demonstration in Dunkirk) funded by Horizon 2020, the European Union's research and innovation program. This H2020 project (Grant Agreement N 838031) has a 19.2-million-euro budget over 4 years, including 14.7 million euros in European Union subsidies. Coordinated by IFPEN, the "3D" project brings together 10 other partners from research and industry from 6 European countries: ArcelorMittal, Axens, Total and its 1/3 party Greenflex, RWTH, DTU, ACP, CMI, Gassco, Brevik Engineering and Uetikon.

The projects will involve process modelling and simulation of CO conditioning as part of the full CO value chain from capture to storage. You will consider CO liquefaction and compression. This is related to CO captured from the steel blast furnaces of Arcelor-Mittal in Dunkirk and then conditioned and prepared for transport to the North Sea cluster. Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. A strong background in process engineering, process modelling, process simulation, thermodynamics, mathematical modelling, and computer programming experience is essential.

The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the The assessment of the applicants will be made by Associate Professor Nicolas von Solms, and Associate Professor Philip Fosbl. DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility. The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The period of employment is 3 years.

Applications must be submitted asone PDF filecontaining all materials to be given consideration. To apply, please open the link “Apply online”, fill out the online application form, and attachall your materials in English in one PDF file. Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree but cannot begin before having received it.

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