Develop Experimental Tools for Sustainable Fuels in Engines at DTU Chemical Engineering


BEMÆRK: Ansøgningsfristen er overskredet

We offer you an opportunity to join DTU Chemical Engineering in the development of experimental and modelling tools to facilitate use of sustainable fuels in engines. The project will be conducted in a collaboration with manufacturers of maritime engines and leading research groups. You will be based in the CHEC research group at DTU Chemical Engineering in a dynamic international research environment. The research in CHEC is mainly based on reaction engineering and transport processes. They involve heterogeneous catalysis and thermal processes related to clean and efficient production of chemicals and (bio)fuels, heat, power, and energy intensive materials such as cement and minerals.

Responsibilities and qualifications

  • Your overall focus will be to strengthen the department’s competences within experimental characterization and modeling of the oxidation of dual-fuel mixtures, including those of diesel fuels with ammonia or methanol. 
  • You will develop a methodology to handle multicomponent liquid fuels in flow reactor experiments and interpret results in terms of detailed reaction mechanisms. 
  • You are expected to work closely with industry partners in adapting the chemical models for use in CFD calculations. 
  • The position will involve co-supervision of BSc and MSc students. You will work with nearby colleagues, and with both academic and industrial partners in Denmark as well as abroad. 

You must have a two-year master's degree in chemical engineering (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree.

Approval and Enrolment 
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see DTU's rules for the PhD education

The assessment will be conducted by Professor Peter Glarborg and Senior Researcher Hamid Hashemi.

Application procedure 
Your complete online application must be submitted no later than 7 June 2024 (23:59 Danish time) . Applications must be submitted as one PDF file containing all materials to be given consideration. To apply, please open the link "Apply now", fill out the online application form, and attach all your materials in English in one PDF file . The file must include:

  • A letter motivating the application (cover letter)
  • Curriculum vitae 
  • Grade transcripts and BSc/MSc diploma (in English) including official description of grading scale

You may apply prior to ob­tai­ning your master's degree but cannot begin before having received it. 

Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, race, disability, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.

The PhD project will be conducted at the CHEC Research Centre at DTU Chemical Engineering. CHEC is internationally recognized with respect to research in combustion, emission control, gasification, modelling, advanced measurements in boilers, and catalysis.
