Closure DateMonday, April 01, 2019
Description:
Clausthal University of Technology, Institute of Chemical and Electrochemical
Process Engineering (ICVT) offers an open position for the duration of two years:

Research Assistant (PhD candidate), m/f/d – salary grade E13 TV-L, 100%

Fixed-bed reactors (FBR) are a widely used reactor device in the chemical and
process industry. FBRs are typically filled with ceramic pellets, which play a
significant role for the reactor performance. In order to overcome the
limitations of ceramic pellets, novel pellets made from open-cell metal foams
will be developed with the help of CFD simulations, which will also speed up the
development process.

The goal of this BMWi funded ZIM project is the development of optimal
metal-foam pellet shapes used as catalysts in FBRs. The project partner from
industry will develop materials and conduct experiments. At ICVT, the research
assistant will investigate the influence of different pellet shapes towards the
reactor performance by means of CFD simulations. The focus of the project is the
extension of existing detailed CFD simulations of FBRs. In addition, the
research assistant will develop workflows for the synthetic bed generation with
an open-source software and optimization strategies for pellet shapes.

Your profile:
•successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in
Chemical or Process Engineering, mechanical engineering, or comparable courses
of studies
•Very good written and oral language skills in English and German
•Sound background in fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer
•Analytical, structured, and independent work ethic
•Experience with CFD software (STAR-CCM+, Ansys, OpenFOAM) and programming
(Python, JAVA, Matlab, etc.) are required.

To ensure equal opportunities between women and men, applications by women with
the required qualifications are explicitly desired. Qualified individuals with
disabilities will be favored. Applications from all over the world are welcome.
