Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology: Postdoc Research Associate 819 views1 application

A position for post-doctoral Research Associate in the Computational Modelling Group, Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, under the administration of Prof. Markus Kraft,is available.

The aim of the project is to build up actions to measure the production of particles down to 10 nm in size from gasoline direct injection engines. The successful applicant will have to extend existing population balance models to describe carbonaceous soot, volatile organic compounds, droplets containing long-chained hydrocarbons coming from the engine lubricating oil, metal ash, and other materials. The testing and refining of the model against experimental data will be carried out by parametric and sensitivity studies. The model will be applied to replicate the production of particles in gasoline direct injection engines.

Qualifications required for post-doctoral Research Associate

  1. The candidate must hold a degree in chemistry, physics, chemical or mechanical engineering, or related subject.
  2. The candidate must essentially have excellent mathematical and programming skills.
  3. The candidate must essentially have an experience with combustion and population balance models.
  4. The candidate must essentially have an excellent publication record in at least 1 of the concerned research areas.
  5. Excellent communication skills including oral and written .
