Imperial College London - Chemical Engineering

Location: London
Salary: £41,593 - £49,210 per annum
Hours: Full Time

Job Summary

The Department of Chemical Engineering is seeking a highly motivated researcher to work as Research Associate in the Molecular Systems Engineering (MSE) Group under the sponsorship of ExxonMobil Research.

The aim of the project is to develop a molecular model to study the flow and separation of mixtures through nanoporous media. The project is fully computational in nature and will involve close interaction with the sponsors.

Duties and responsibilities:

  • To develop, code and run molecular dynamics simulations models to describe the flow of fluid mixtures through nanoporous structures
  • To calculate the transport and thermophysical properties of mixtures, considering variations in the structural configurations of the pores.
  • To provide input to the design and to identify key features for experimental setups to test, develop and validate separation processes and flow patterns in shale oil reservoirs. 

Duties and responsibilities

  • Design of molecular simulation models to describe the flow of fluids through nanoporous membranes.
  • To perform and analyse the non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations leading to the study of the variables involved in the separation of organic mixtures with nanoporous media. 

Essential requirements

  • We are seeking a professional who is confident in the use of common computer languages and with demonstrable experience in the area of atomistic and coarse-grained simulation of fluids.
  • Hold a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Physics, Materials, or a closely related discipline with a specialisation in molecular modelling of fluids, or equivalent research, industrial or commercial experience
  • Practical experience within a research environment and / or publication in relevant and refereed journals

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £36,694 – £39,888 per annum.
