Postdoctoral Position – 2019 in Netherlands, Delft University of Technology
Designation/Position- Postdoctoral Position – 2019 in Netherlands
Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), Netherlands invites application for Postdoctoral Position – 2019 in Netherlands from eligible and interested candidates
About- The Faculty of Applied Sciences is the largest faculty of TU Delft, with around 550 scientists, a support staff of 250 and 1,800 students. The faculty conducts fundamental, application-oriented research and offers scientific education at the bachelor, master and doctoral levels. The faculty is active in the fields of Life and Health Science & Technology, Nanoscience, Chemical Engineering, Radiation Science & Technology, and Applied Physics. Postdoctoral Position – 2019 in Netherlands, Delft University of Technology
The position is in the Department of Biotechnology, which engages in internationally-leading education programs, and which offers a stimulating environment in the biosciences, combining fundamental research, engineering, and design, all directed towards biotechnological process innovations. The Department covers the areas of biocatalysis, bioprocess engineering, cell systems engineering, environmental biotechnology, industrial microbiology, and biotechnology and society. The Department shares a state-of-the-art building, which the Bionanoscience and Chemical Engineering departments. Working in such close proximity facilitates inter-departmental collaborations on multidisciplinary projects.
Research/Job Area- Physics or (bio)chemical engineering
Project Title- Multiphase Computational Fluid Dynamics
Location- Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), Netherlands
- an MSc in (bio)chemical engineering, or an equivalent program
- a PhD related to physics or (bio)chemical engineering
- profound expertise in multiphase solid liquid fluidization modeling
- proficiency in English
- affinity with research at the interface of academia and industry
The Bioprocess Engineering research group aims to develop novel concepts for compact, clean and efficient biotechnological manufacturing processes, starting from the fundamental and quantitative knowledge of biomolecular mechanisms, and integrating advanced technological, theoretical and experimental methods. Three directions can be distinguished: high-throughput measurement and modelling of biomolecular properties
(1), equipment development
(2), and bioprocess integration
(3), which are applied to biopharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, bio-based chemicals, and bio-energy.
For the NWO EBA2.0 project, a Post-Doctoral researcher is sought with a background in physics or (bio) chemical engineering with a focus on multiphase computational fluid dynamics (CFD). In this project advanced multiphase solid liquid CFD calculations are used to design and optimize operation of next generation Expanded Bed Adsorption (EBA) equipment. We are therefore looking for a colleague with interest in design, analysis and scalability of solid liquid expanded beds for the capture of industrially relevant bio products. He/she will further develop our multiphase CFD code and strengthen our CFD based design of Expanded Bed Adsorption.
Contract – 2 years
Salary – 3255 – 4274 euros monthly (full-time basis)
