PDRA in Modelling and Optimisation of Versatile Adsorption Processes for the Capture of Carbon Dioxide from Industrial Sources (University of Edinburgh)

Vacancy Ref: 038354
Closing date: 24 January 2017

A three-year, fixed term postdoctoral appointment is available in the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh to work on the FlexICCS EPSRC-funded collaborative project. The project will develop advanced simulation tools for rapid pressure swing (RPSA) and rotary thermal swing (RWA) adsorption processes that will be coupled to optimisation methods to develop novel solutions for carbon capture applications from industrial emissions.

The successful candidate will be responsible for all aspects of the project associated with the simulation and optimisation of the adsorption processes for industrial CCS. This includes the development of a multi-objective optimisation framework for the design of modular and versatile separation units than can be used for carbon capture applications from various industrial sources. The project includes several industrial partners who will provide data for the specific case studies. The post is full time and is expected to start in March 2017.
