TitlePhD Candidate Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling
CategoryJob in Academia
EmployerNTNU Norwegian University and Science and Technology
LocationNorway, Trondheim
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateWednesday, May 01, 2024
A PhD research fellow position within New Emission Surveillance solutions for 
the Aluminium industry (NESA) is available. The PhD candidate will be part of 
our team at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at NTNU, and 
work on the NESA research project financed by The Research Council of Norway.

The NESA project is a part of the Norwegian aluminium industry’s work towards 
zero emissions and increased sustainability. To meet the increasingly stringent 
requirements for environmental monitoring and control, and to further reduce 
emissions, the industry needs systems for online emissions monitoring with 
predictive capabilities. Better emission models and measurements are needed to 
achieve this. The overall goal of the project is to develop and demonstrate 
methods for robust online measurements, modelling and prediction of heavy metal 
emissions associated with dust – from source to environment. The PhD candidate 
will collaborate closely with industrial partners Hydro Aluminium and Alcoa 
Norway, as well as Cybernetica, Nemko Norlab, SINTEF and SINTEF Helgeland to 
realize the goal of the project. The PhD candidate will be affiliated with the 
research group for Resources, Energy and Environment at the Department of 
Materials Science and Engineering.

The PhD candidate will focus on mathematical modelling of emissions from 
industrial sites, aiming to predict the evolution of the emissions faster than 
real-time. This will involve the use of reduced order models, in order to 
characterize the emission source, and tools for atmospheric dispersion 
modelling, validated by experimental measurements obtained through the project.  
For a position as a PhD Candidate, the goal is a completed doctoral education up 
to an obtained doctoral degree.

Your immediate leader/supervisor will be Prof. Kristian Etienne Einarsrud.
