Are you an accomplished researcher seeking to make a meaningful contribution to the reduction of global CO₂ emissions? Our member VITO is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher with expertise in optimising cyclic gas adsorption-based processes through computational modeling.
- Contribute to climate change mitigation by developing a more efficient technology for capturing CO₂ emissions from industrial flue gases.
- Optimise temperature-vacuum swing adsorption process cycles.
- Support the development of new structured sorbents through computational simulation and experimental sorption testing at lab- and pilot-scale.
- Collaborate on (inter)national research projects with industrial and academic partners.
- Deliver high-quality scientific results in accordance with project timelines.
- Publish research findings in high-impact scientific publications and present results at relevant conferences.
- PhD degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Bioscience Engineering, or related fields.
- Profound knowledge of chemical engineering fundamentals, including fluid flow, heat & mass transfer, and kinetics, as well as gas adsorption phenomena.
- Demonstrated expertise in process modeling and simulation tools for cyclic gas adsorption processes (e.g., ASPEN, Matlab, gPROMS, Python).
VITO is offering:
- Competitive salary package with allowances, insurances, and a modular vacation package.
- A collaborative work environment with a team of renowned experts in their respective fields.
- Opportunities for ongoing professional development and training to stay at the forefront of your expertise.
- Be part of an organisation with a global reputation for cutting-edge technological research and scientific consultancy.
If you are driven by the imperative to mitigate climate change and possess the requisite skills and knowledge, apply here.
Application deadline: 31st of September 2023.
