PhD Position on Process Design and Optimization Tools for Gas Phase Synthesis of Nanoparticles

The Energy and Particle Technology Laboratory (EPTL) at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada is recruiting a 
PhD student for a position on multiscale modeling of gas phase synthesis of nanoparticles in reactive flows. 
The main focus is to expand the current understanding of nanoparticle formation and evolution and apply it to 
develop state-of-the-art computational tools aimed at predicting nanoparticle characteristics such as 
morphology, particle size distribution (PSD), and chemical composition under different process conditions 
from various feedstocks.

Candidate qualifications

Candidates must have completed at least two years of MASc studies in mechanical, aerospace oe chemical 
engineering. The candidate is expected to have strong skills in the following areas:

•	Proficient grasp on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and numerical analysis methods. Experience in 
OpenFOAM is a plus.
•	Advanced coding skills preferably in Python or C++ with solid understanding of Object-Oriented 
Programming (OOP) and experience in working with large code bases. A well-mentioned GitHub repository is 
a plus.
•	Familiarity with chemical kinetics and particle dynamics
•	Dedication, self-motivation, and independent research with a strong work ethic and collaborative skills 
•	Proficiency in both written and spoken English and excellent communication and interpersonal skills. 

Energy and Particle Technology Laboratory (

EPTL conducts research on nanoparticle engineering with applications in energy storage, advanced material 
synthesis, emission sensing and quantification of their impact on the environment. We develop process 
design tools for scalable gas phase synthesis of nanoparticles with tailored functional properties and study 
how particle characteristics including their size distribution, morphology and chemical composition are linked 
to their properties of interest such as optical, sensing and energy storage characteristics.

How to Apply

Applications should include a CV and a cover letter clearly outlining how past research and experience 
provide the essential qualifications to undertake the project. Additionally, contact info for three references 
should be available upon request. Please Direct Application to: Professor Reza Kholghy (Director of EPTL):
