PhD position: Energy Technology – Thermal Process Chemistry 279 views

The Umeå University is recruiting a PhD student in Energy Technology with specialization in Thermal Process Chemistry for a project focused on fundamental studies of calcination and carbonation reactions under conditions relevant for new and innovative processes for sustainable production of cement clinker and quicklime, with the overall goal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the processes.

About the Project:
  • The overall goal with the research, to which the current position relates, is to find new process engineering solutions that enable carbon capture from the cement and quicklime industries.
  • The plan for this doctoral project includes developing new knowledge related to calcination and carbonation in atmospheres of varying temperature and carbon dioxide concentration; knowledge that is necessary as technology development is likely to include new heat sources and higher levels of carbon dioxide in the process gases.
  • The project is part of the activities within the Centre for Sustainable Production of Cement and Quicklime at Umeå University.
  • The position will open on September 1st 2020 (exact start date can be negotiated).


  • Applicant should have a Master of Science degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Energy Technology with specialization on thermochemical energy conversion, geology, material science, mineral technology or equivalent qualifications.
  • Applicant is required to have completed at least 120 ECTS credits in the fields of chemistry, chemical engineering, energy technology, geology, material science, mineral technology or other subjects directly relevant to postgraduate studies.
  • Applicants who in some other system, either within Sweden or abroad, have acquired largely equivalent skills are also eligible.
  • Applicant must have a strong interest in development of directly useful knowledge within the subject of the project.
  • The project includes handling of chemicals and experiments at high temperatures, which means that carefulness and high safety awareness are important.
  • Very good knowledge of the English language, both in speech and in writing, is required.


Apply online and the application should include the following:

  • A cover letter with a brief description of qualifications, research interests and motivation for applying, and contact details (max. 2 pages)
  • Curriculum vitae.
  • Copies of relevant degree diploma(s) and certificates.
  • A list of university courses with grades.
  • A copy of master thesis and publications (if any).
  • Contact information of two reference persons.
