PhD Scholarship in Eurotech Alliance Dual Circularity Modelling at Technical University of Denmark

Technical University of Denmark is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position in mechanical engineering. The funds for this position are available for 3 years. Applications should be sent before June 15, 2020.

A PhD student position (3 years) is available at the Section of Engineering Design and Product Development, within the Department of Mechanical Engineering (latest Mechanical Engineering scholarship positions) at the Technical University of Denmark. The position is created in connection with the project "Dual Circularity Modelling for Sustainable Industrial and Societal Goods".

The project is supported by the EuroTech Universities Alliance, a strategic partnership of leading European universities of science and technology committed to excellence in research and education, and is running in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich (TUM). The PhD student will work closely with the consortium partners and industrial stakeholders. One of the most well-known models of the circular economy is the so-called "butterfly diagram", depicting a series of return loops of a biological cycle on one side of the butterfly, and similar depiction of return loops of a technological cycle on the other side. To date, however, there are very few approaches that focus on: Furthermore, no research has been carried out regarding the transitions between a technological and a biological cycle and vice versa, beyond few high-level considerations. This PhD project will build an approach to enable the dual circularity modelling of industrial and societal goods, from the perspective of sustainability to analyse the mentioned questions.

The PhD candidate is expected to develop a framework that enables dual circularity modelling of industrial and societal goods, and consider the potential rebound effects linked with Circular Economy. Strong collaboration is expected, both with the researchers from TUM and with industrial stakeholders, for the development, validation and implementation of the proposed framework. The candidate at DTU will focus mainly on the technological cycle, whereas a "partner" PhD candidate at TUM will focus primarily on the biological cycle. The candidate will publish his/her research results in international peer-reviewed journals and present at international conferences and seminars. 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. The applicant should be highly motivated and hold a master's degree, preferably within the areas of Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Design, Environmental Engineering, Industrial Engineering or related areas. Good command of written and spoken English is required. In addition, background knowledge on Circular Economy, plus knowledge and experience with manufacturing companies and sustainability will be weighted highly amongst candidates.
