Dear Colleagues 


A position for a post-doctoral scientist is available at the Centre for
Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH-Greece), Chemical Process and Energy
Resources Institute (CPERI) to carry out research in the field of modeling
and design of solvent-based absorption/desorption CO2 capture processes. The
position is part of a research program funded by the European Commission
with multiple academic and industrial partners across Europe.


A successful candidate will be required to: 

.         Develop and use advanced, mathematical process modeling methods
for separation and reactive separation systems. 

.         Use optimization methods for the design of chemical process

.         Participate in experimental runs in pilot plant unit.

.         Validate the developed models using experimental results obtained
from the pilot plant unit.

.         Work independently but also collaborate with other scientists and
engineers both internally and externally.

.         Contribute to scientific community through publications.

.         Keep abreast of relevant scientific literature/new

.         Prepare clear and thorough reports in English.

Basic Qualifications        

Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering or related field with research emphasis in
advanced process modeling and design.

Additional Skills/Preferences    

.         Strong knowledge of mathematical programming of chemical processes
in basic programming languages (e.g. C, Fortran etc.) or software like

.         Good understanding of thermodynamics for process engineering.

.         Experience with experimental study of process systems will be
considered a plus. 

.         Excellent oral and written communication skills.

.         Must be able to work productively in an interdisciplinary team

.         Demonstration of scientific and people leadership skills.

Period of employment

The position is available for a 3-year term, offering a competitive salary.
The deadline for applications is on September 15th. The successful applicant
is expected to start within October 2016.
