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 systems.

·         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 technologies/capabilities.

·         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 gPROMS and ASPEN.

·         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 environment

·         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.
