Postdoctoral Position at the MIT Energy Initiative

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Energy Initiative (MITEI) is 
seeking a postdoctoral researcher for the simulation of energy conversion 
processes.  This process-simulation-intensive research position will be 
responsible for model development, software interfacing and complex 
process configuration and analysis.  The model development research is 
focused on IGCC and Polygeneration using Aspen Plus for conversion of 
carbonaceous materials to electricity, liquid fuels and chemicals.  The 
software interfacing work will combine stochastic modeling methods using 
Bayesian uncertainty analysis tools with deterministic flowsheet modeling 
(Aspen Plus) and cost estimation modeling (ICARUS).  In this research 
program, multiple configurations of IGCC and Polygeneration flowsheets 
will be built and analyzed.  The postdoctoral research will work with 
Professors and PhD candidates across 5 research teams.  This is an 
excellent opportunity for a postdoctoral candidate looking for an 
exceptional multi-disciplinary experience.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and at least two 
years of experience using Aspen Plus.
