The Department of Chemical Engineering at University College London (UCL) is inviting applications for a PhD studentship in Environmentally Safe Operation of Pipelines via the Use of Surface-Active Compounds (Ref:1823410). The position is available in the Molecular and Engineering Thermodynamics group. The post-holder will collaborate with a leading company operating in the energy sector, as well as with prominent research groups within UCL, in North America, and elsewhere.
About the project:
- Understanding of classical thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, molecular simulations are desired, but not essential, as it will be developed during the project. The post-holder will have the opportunity of sharing results and ideas with several industrial partners.
- The post is fully funded (stipend and fees) for 4.0 years and is available as of February 2020.
- Candidate will have completed a first-class degree at the MEng or MSc level in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Sciences, Physics or related disciplines.
- Candidate must be a dedicated student, preferably with advanced understanding of thermodynamics, transport phenomena, and research methods.
- Willingness to perform independently, yet within a collaborative environment, within a world-class competitive and highly demanding environment is a must.
- Demonstrable prior knowledge of research methods and molecular simulations approaches are desirable, but not necessary requirements.
- Funds are available to cover EU/UK fees.
- Overseas students will be considered but might be required to cover the difference between Overseas and EU/UK fees.
