NUIG 115-20 Postdoctoral Researcher, Multiscale modelling of photocatalytic reactors,School of Chemistry,NUI Galway

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a full-time, fixed term position as a Postdoctoral Researcher within the School of Chemistry at the National University of Ireland, Galway.

The position is funded by the H2020 programme (Grant Agreement 862453) and is available from 1st September for a period of 18 months.

 

 

The Project:

FlowPhotoChem aims to develop and model an integrated modular system based on continuous-flow heterogeneous photo(electro)catalytic reactors to produce relevant chemicals such as ethylene in the chemical sector, precursor to ""green plastics"" and many other high-value chemicals using abundant resources such as water, carbon dioxide and light. We aim at delivering cost-efficient small-scale systems for intermittent operation to respond to the needs of rural, isolated territories, and distributed manufacturing. Novel multifunctional photo(electro)catalytic materials integrated into practical and scalable reactors are required in Europe to maintain the technological leadership in chemical manufacturing, while ensuring the deployment of sustainable processes which meet circular economy and green industry for a low-carbon future. FlowPhotoChem will use the expertise of the partners to design, model, construct and validate an integrated modular system with improved energy efficiency and negative CO2 emissions, since concentrated CO2 will be valorised to high-value chemicals. The integrated system will be studied from a life cycle analysis perspective to quantify such effects, and to include a techno-economic study to quantify the cost of the technology and compare with comparable renewable solutions for the production of the same/similar chemicals.

 

Job Description:

The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Prof. Henry Curran to develop a multi-physics (and potentially multi-scale) model to describe and predict the performance of gas-phase photocatalytic reactors, in particular for the photocatalytic CO2 hydrogenation in a flow photoreactor. The model will rely on input parameters derived both from experiments and multi-scale/atomistic simulations. The developed model will help to design the flow reactor to optimise space-time yields of the targeted compounds.

 

Duties:

  • Support the PI on liaising and reporting to the Project Coordinator which includes preparation of periodic scientific reports.

  • Keep appropriate records as directed and in line with Funder/University policy.

    Designing of computational multi-physic models based on demonstrator reactors to be developed within the frame of the project.

    Liaise with other project partners to combine multi-physics models with experimental data and atomistic simulations.

  • Mentor and assist, as appropriate and as directed, the research graduate students in the group.

  • Contribute to the research project’s dissemination in whatever form - report, papers, chapters, book.

 

Qualifications/Skills required:

The ideal candidate should hold a PhD in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Chemical or Mechanical Engineering, have a strong background in computational chemistry/materials science and are expected to have performed original scientific research within multi-physics, mesoscopic and/or reactor level simulations of photocatalytic/photoelectrocatalytic reactors. Candidates should have excellent communication and organizational skills; be highly motivated and passionate about renewable energy/fuels; and have strong documentation, oral and interpersonal skills. The position requires communication with the different partners of the consortium, thus excellent communication skills are mandatory.

 

Essential Requirements:

  • PhD in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Chemical or Mechanical Engineering

  • Evidence of experience in computational multi-physics modelling in the area of chemical engineering

  • Demonstrable experience in both independent and collaborative research

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills (English language)

  • Evidence of scientific publication and dissemination of results at conferences

 

Desirable Requirements:

  • Experience in working in a team

  • Evidence of innovative thinking, able to work both independently and in cross-disciplinary teams

  • Appropriate supervisory or teaching experience may be an advantage
