PhD project Position: Chemical and Biochemical Engineering
PhD project Position: Modeling of Electrolyte Systems using the Non-Primitive Approach at the DTU Chemical Eng, Technical University of Denmark (DTU) (Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering – Center for Energy Resources Engineering).
Deadline: 31 December 2020
The duration of the position is three years.
The purpose of this project is to develop a non-primitive electrolyte equation of state based on an association theory (CPA or PC-SAFT) as basis for the “physical” interactions, coupled with suitable dipolar and electrostatic terms. The accurate representation of the solvents and interactions with ions is of crucial importance as well as an enhanced study of dielectric effects.
Responsibilities & tasks
The project is carried out as a part of the ERC Advanced Grant “New Paradigm in Electrolyte Thermodynamics” and is expected to involve travels and interactions with other researchers employed under the same project.
- 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.Assessment
The assessment of the applicants will be made by Professor Georgios M. Kontogeorgis and associate professor Xiaodong Liang.
