The Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management (TPM), Department of Engineering Systems and Services (ESS) at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) has two postdoc position within the field Industrial Decarbonization.
About the positions:
PD1: 1 Postdoc position (24 months) to work in the VICI project “Unraveling the Impacts of Using Alternative Raw Materias in Industrial Clusters”. The PD will work together with Prof Ramirez and a group of PhD students in the development of a process based model of a petro-chemical industrial cluster and the assessment of impacts induced by changing the (fossil-based) feedstocks currently used in the cluster with alternative raw materials such as biomass and CO2. The modeling work will be conducted in ASPEN Plus.
PD2: 1 Postdoc position (18 months) will investigate methodological approaches for developing bottom-up learning curves of novel technologies to be used for the production of low carbon chemicals and materials. The PD will explore the use of learning learning curves in assessing the techno-economic potential of the techhnologies by means of selected case studies.
- Applicants must have recently completed a PhD in the field of system analysis, systems engineering, process engineering or technology assessment. You have an academic background (M.Sc or bachelor) in chemical, mechanical or process engineering.
- Applicants must have excellent academic qualifications, strong analytical and communication skills.
- Capabitilites to work in an interdisciplinary group are essential for this position. For the position PD1, knowledge in concept process design and proven experience in using commercial process simulators, particularly ASPEN Plus is required.
