The Department of Chemical Engineering is seeking a Research Associate to join an industrially-funded project to carry out research in the area of process systems engineering. You will develop advanced process modeling and model-based optimization strategies applied to membrane contactors (MBC). The project builds upon an existing collaboration on model-based design of the MBC system with the industrial partner. The research will support the development of new flue gas decarbonisation designs and real-time operational strategies, with a view to generating additional design insights which take account of operability. It will also pave the way for the implementation of digital twins of future MBC systems. The post holder will implement and fully document software tools for the above tasks and conduct case studies in collaboration with the industrial partner.
The position is part of the wider PETRONAS Centre for Engineering of Multiphase Systems (PETCEMS). The post holder will work under the supervision of Profs. Benoit Chachuat and Nilay Shah and Dr Antonio del Rio Chanona at the Sargent Centre for Process Systems Engineering.
Candidates should have a PhD (or equivalent) in chemical engineering or another relevant topic.
*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £38,194 – £41,388 per annum.
You can start immediately. The contract will run for 24 months in the first instance, with the possibility of a further extension thereafter. The post is based in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London (South Kensington Campus).
Informal enquiries about the post can be made to: Prof Benoit Chachuat (email@example.com), Prof Nilay Shah (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr del Rio Chanona (email@example.com).
