Technical University of Denmark

Centre for Vitality Assets Engineering (CERE) at DTU Chemistry seeks a postdoc in reference to the continuing analysis initiatives associated to geological CO2 and H2 storage. CERE is a cross-departmental centre ( ), and the CERE group at DTU Chemistry is targeted on high-pressure section behaviour and different important points associated to CCS (CO2 seize and storage), hydrogen storage, and different sustainable utilization of subsurface sources. The analysis actions at CERE, DTU Chemistry primarily contain experimental measurement and modelling of section equilibrium and thermophysical properties at excessive strain and growth of environment friendly section equilibrium calculation algorithms for compositional simulations.

Tasks and {qualifications}
The key accountability of the postdoc is to hold out high-pressure experimental research primarily associated to geological CO2 storage and H2 storage, together with the research of chalk reactivity below CO2 sequestration, the high-pressure properties of the H2-containing mixtures, and the measurement of different basic CO2-brine properties. The postdoc must collaborate with different colleagues in related modelling and information interpretation. The postdoc may even be concerned in supervision of scholars and sure instructing obligations within the division.

As a proper qualification, you will need to maintain a PhD diploma (or equal) in related areas corresponding to chemical engineering, chemistry, physics, and petroleum engineering. It’s best to have expertise with high-pressure experiment. Expertise with high-pressure equilibrium measurement and high-pressure tools design is a bonus.
