Επωνυμία εργοδοτικού φορέα:
Two research positions are available with the Laboratory of Process Systems Design and Implementation (LPSDI) of the Chemical Process Engineering Research Institute (CPERI) of Centre for Research and Technology – Hellas (CERTH) in a European Commission funded research project. CERTH is a leading research organization under the auspices of Greek Ministry of Education. CPERI was founded in 1985 in Thessaloniki, Greece and in 2000 CPERI became a founding member of CERTH. CPERI.CERTH is the leading research institute at a national level according to the latest five year evaluation by an internationally scientific committee assigned by the General Secretariat of Research and Technology (July 2005) with 150 employees and an annual budget of 8.3 million Euros (2009 data).
CPERI.CERTH has been actively involved in research projects with 105 ongoing research projects. LPSDI is consisted of a strong group in process modelling, design and optimization of complex reaction/separation (three phase reactive distillation, polymerization reactors, fluidized catalytic cracking units) and energy conversion (hybrid system with renewable energy sources and hydrogen production) processes and a strong group in small-and pilot-plant units design, construction and implementation.
Βασικό αντικείμενο απασχόλησης:
The research involves the development of new technology towards breakthrough innovation in solvent based post-combustion CO2 capture for enhanced energy efficiency, improved cost effectiveness and increased process sustainability. Advances in the identification of highly performing solvents and solvent blends in CO2 absorption and the development of optimal process configurations enable cost reductions of at least 20-30% per ton of CO2 captured. Computer aided molecular design tools supported by accurate and adequately validated thermodynamic models enable the exhaustive investigation of the performance of multiple solvents and solvent blends in post-combustion CO2 absorption processes. The solvent blends are systematically assessed and rank-ordered against their performance towards the satisfaction of relevant process, economic, operability and sustainability criteria.
The candidate should hold a degree in chemical, mechanical, systems or energy engineering preferably with post-graduate level studies (Master level) in any of the following fields of expertise: Process design, process optimization, systems engineering, or process modelling.
Possible industrial experience will be considered favourably. The research leads to a PhD in collaboration with the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. An excellent knowledge of English (written and oral) is required. Probable starting date is November 1st. A studentship of about 10,000 Euros/annum will be awarded.
Candidates should send a full CV with names and addresses (including an email) of at least two referees closely related to their studies or previous work experience to Prof. P. Seferlis (firstname.lastname@example.org) before October 25th.
