The ERC project’s overall target is to arrive at a fundamental understanding of electrolyte thermodynamics and thus enable the engineering of a new generation of useful, physically sound models for electrolyte solutions. These models should be general and applicable to a very wide range of conditions so that they can be potentially used for a wide range of applications
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

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Wednesday 03 Mar 21 Apply for this job Apply no later than 1 May 2021 Apply for the job at DTU Chemical Eng. by completing the following form. Apply online One or more PhD positions, starting September 1 st 2021 or as soon as possible after that, are available in the area of electrolyte thermodynamics. The duration of the position is three years. The present project or projects are part of the on-going ERC Advanced Grant project “ New Paradigm in Electrolyte Thermodynamics ”. Electrolyte solutions are present almost anywhere and find numerous applications in physical sciences including chemistry, geology, material science, medicine, biochemistry and physiology as well as in many engineering fields especially chemical & biochemical, electrical and petroleum engineering. In all these applications the thermodynamics plays a crucial role over wide ranges of temperature, pressure and composition. There is a wide range of thermodynamics models for electrolyte solutions but there are numerous questions and the state-of-the-art is confusing. The ERC project’s overall target is to arrive at a fundamental understanding of electrolyte thermodynamics and thus enable the engineering of a new generation of useful, physically sound models for electrolyte solutions. These models should be general and applicable to a very wide range of conditions so that they can be potentially used for a wide range of applications. Responsibilities and qualifications In the present PhD project, the target is to enhance the understanding of electrolyte thermodynamics based on novel approaches which can be inspired by the PhD student’s own ideas. The project should complement, enhance and could develop further on the existing sub-projects, as outlined in the ERC web-site. A short but ambitious project plan should be submitted together with the application. 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. 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. 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 the DTU PhD Guide . Assessment The assessment of the applicants will be made by Professor Georgios M. Kontogeorgis and Associate Professor Xiaodong Liang. We offer DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility. Salary and appointment terms The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The period of employment is 3 years. You can read more about career paths at DTU here .
