    The candidate has a Master degree in chemical or thermal process engineering or similar, with documented laboratory experience with flow reactor systems and has previously worked with thermochemical processes.


    Preferably, the candidate holds industrial experience. Excellent proficiency in the English language is required, as well as good communication skills, both oral and written.


    The EU Strategy for Low-Emission Mobility explicitly calls for the speed-up of deployment of low-emission alternative energy for transport. In fact, more than 25 % of the World energy consumption is by the transportation sector. This stipulates the development of advanced fuels derived both from biogenic resources, bio-fuels, and electricity based, electrofuels. The scope of this project is to make technical advancements within the cross-field of these interrelated fields.

    Research areas can be within modeling and optimization, and experimental validation of green fuel technologies including P2X, advanced biofuels, and carbon capture.
