A PhD position, starting August 1 2021 or as soon as possible after that, is available in the area of electrolyte thermodynamics. The duration of the position is three years.
Responsibilities and qualifications
The appointment will be at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering (Center for Energy Resources Engineering). The project is carried out as a part of the ERC Advanced Grant (“New Paradigm in Electrolyte Thermodynamics”) and is expected to involve travels and interactions with other researchers employed under the same project. The project aims at reconciling various modeling approaches for modeling electrolyte thermodynamics. The project is carried out under partial supervision from Dr. Bjørn Maribo-Mogensen from Hafnium Labs, a startup specializing in physical property prediction, located in Copenhagen.
You must have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.
