At the Faculty of Engineering and Science, Department of Biotechnology, Chemistry and Environmental Engineering a PhD stipend is available within the general study programme “Biotechnology, Chemistry and Environmental Engineering”. The stipend is open for appointment from November 1, 2010 or as soon as possible hereafter.
The research will focus on gas dispersion and advection in porous materials as induced by external pressure fluctuations biofilters such as wind turbulence or passage of weather systems. Main tasks will include: (1) Identifying relationships between gas dispersion coefficient and media grain and pore size. (2) Assessment of the relationships between gas dispersion coefficient and pressure fluctuation characteristics. (3) Development and testing of dispersion measurement methods for use both in the laboratory and in the field.
Applicants should hold a Master degree or equivalent at the time of appointment and should have extensive knowledge of gas and water transport in porous media. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience with measurement of gas and liquid dispersion in porous media. The candidate should be fluent in English both written and oral.
