TitleExperimental and CFD simulation of ESP and ESPCP - O/W emulsion
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerUniversity of Los Andes - Chemical engineering department
LocationColombia, Cundinamarca, Bogotá
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateMonday, March 18, 2019
Description:
The Department of Chemical Engineering at University of Los Andes (Bogota, Colombia), is 
recruiting a PhD student for a project on experimental and CFD simulation of electro submersible 
Pump (ESP) and Electrical Submersible Progressing Cavity Pump (ESPCP) working with O/W 
emulsions. 

We are currently looking for a highly motivated researcher to join us in an exciting project. The aim is 
to study and contrast the operation and performance of these two pumps considering two-phase 
liquid-liquid flow and O/W direct emulsion, through experimental and coupled CFD-PBM 
approaches. 

Major responsibilities
As a PhD student you will be part of a research environment while you expand your knowledge of 
the field and write your thesis. You are expected to be a team player with strong interest in industrial 
applications, but also to work autonomously, to develop your own ideas and communicate results to 
the scientific community. The graduate programme will thus comprise 3 years of study and research.

Position summary
Full time employment at the Department of Chemical Engineering. Starting date: 1 July 2019.

Qualifications
•	Spanish language proficiency is mandatory.
•	A master's degree on Chemical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering is a must.
•	Applicants must have a strong background in CFD modelling using commercial software (i.e. 
STAR-CCM+)
•	Expertise on pumps in the lab is an advantage.
•	Knowledge on Population Balance Modelling (PBM) is a plus.
•	Familiar with non-Newtonian behaviour; such fluids exhibit a nonlinear response to imposed 
strain rate and to strain. Typical examples include emulsions.
•	The developed methods are implemented in software that will be used by industry and very 
good programming skills (e.g., Java, Matlab) are therefore required.
•	In your application you should include all relevant work such as bachelor's or master's thesis 
and articles (provide an English summary if necessary) that you have authored or co-authored. 
Evidence of mathematical problem-solving skills is significant, besides course grades.
