PhD Scholarship in Development of Digital Twins in Water Treatment Systems

Technical University of Denmark is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position in sustainable development. Potential candidates should apply before July 05, 2020.

A PhD position is available in the frame of the joint alliance research project "Development of digital twins to improve control and operation of (urban/industrial) water treatment systems" funded by the Technical University of Denmark. The project is in close collaboration with the Advanced Water Management Centre (AWMC) at the University of Queensland (Australia) and will deliver a set of virtual replicas of the different technologies comprising the flow diagram of the water treatment systems under study (Denmark, Australia).

The digital twin will enable process engineers to make more informed decisions about how to optimize: 1) energy recovery, 2) chemical use, 3) operational procedures, 4) sludge handling and 5) retrofitting equipment (=capacity liberation in the plant). The topic covered in this proposal is aligned with multiple UN Sustainability Development Goals : 6 (clean water and sanitation) 7 (affordable clean energy), 11 (sustainable cities and communities) and 14 (life below water). In general, the project aims towards a more circular economy where the waste generated from one industry becomes a secondary raw material for another and there is a lower dependency on raw material imports. The PhD student will develop different types of mathematical models describing industrial / urban water treatment systems, and will furthermore focus on how to improve treatment system performance. The tasks will include, but not be limited to In accordance with the above-mentioned tasks, the applicant should preferably have qualifications within several of the following areas:

Applications and enclosures received after the deadline will not be considered. All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, race, disability, 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 covers separation processes, reaction engineering, dynamics and process regulation, process and facility planning, unit operations, heat transmission, fluid mechanics (latest fluid mechanics scholarship positions) and applied thermodynamics. The Department enjoys very close relations with international partners, and especially a wide range of industrial companies. Technology for people DTU develops technology for people. With our international elite research and study programmes, we are helping to create a better world and to solve the global challenges formulated in the UN's 17 Sustainable Development (Sustainable Development scholarships) Goals. Hans Christian rsted founded DTU in 1829 with a clear vision to develop and create value using science and engineering to benefit society. That vision lives on today. DTU has 11,500 students and 6,000 employees. We work in an international atmosphere and have an inclusive, evolving, and informal working environment. Our main campus is in Kgs. Lyngby north of Copenhagen and we have campuses in Roskilde and Ballerup and in Sisimiut in Greenland.
