Our member the University of Mons has published a Post-Doc opportunity focusing on the optimisation of the post-combustion CO2 capture process by absorption-regeneration through dynamic simulations and experimental investigations.

The project focusing on Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) application in the lime production sector is addressing the most mature carbon capture technology, namely the post-combustion absorption-regeneration using amine(s)-based solvents.


  • Education: Candidates must hold a PhD degree in Chemical engineering/Chemistry/Engineering Sciences with a strong interest in chemistry, energy, process engineering and optimisation. Any previous experience related to CCU, especially by absorption, would be an asset.
  • Languages: A good knowledge of English is required, both oral and written; Knowledge of French would be an asset.
  • Other skills: Interest and experience with simulation/modelling tools (such as Aspen Plus/Hysys, gPROMS) are essential; previous experience with dynamic simulations would be an asset. Any other experience related to absorption/regeneration tests and amine(s)-based solvents would be also an asset.

The Post-Doc is expected to start on the 1st of February 2023 at the latest for a duration of 18 months.

The application deadline is November 30 at 11 pm (CET).
