Chalmers University is offering a one-year research position in a project related to develop CO2 capture technologies for a broad range of industry. The project is highly interdisciplinar and consists of a collaboration between the Departments of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Departments of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and Technology Management and Economics.

Project description
In this project, we will develop a multi-pathway platform for CO2 capture and storage based on the tunable carbonate (CO32-) chemistry. This platform will utilize the residual streams at industrial sites, instead of a suboptimal "one-size-fits-all" solution. The developed processes operate at ambient conditions and are both resource- and energy-efficient. Full conversion will be reached through a combination of iterative reactor design and computational fluid dynamics simulations. The postdoc will be the main responsible to apply existing reactive CFD models to improve the design of current CO2 capture systems. Computational results will be compared with experimental data availabe at the division of Chemical Engineering.

Information about the division and the department
The position will be open at the Fluid Dynamics division of Mechanics and Maritime Science department. The research at the Division covers turbulent flow (both compressible and incompressible), multiphase flows, aero-acoustics and turbomachines. Our tools include both computations and experiments. The research covers a wide range of topics. In some research projects the smallest turbulent scales are studied whereas in others the function of a complete gas turbine is analyzed and modelled. The Division of Fluid Dynamics is part of Chalmers Sustainable Transport Initiative, Chalmers eScience Initiative and Chalmers Energy Initiative.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility is to perform your own research within the division of Fluid Dynamics. The employee is expected to develop own ideas and communicate scientific results orally and in written form.

Required Minimum Qualifications:

• PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Engineering Physics (or equivalent), with a focus on Computational Fluid Dynamics. The application must be supported by journal publication confirming the applicant has experience and knowledge in this field.

• A demonstrated ability to perform CFD simulations and analyze the numerical data

• Strong communication skills in both written and spoken English.

• Independence and self-motivation. Ability to meet deadlines and has a strong commitment to work in a research group, openly sharing results, challenges, and difficulties with the team to ensure the success of the project.

Contract terms
This special fixed-term position (Säva) in CFD simulations for CO2 capture is for the duration of one year.
