PhD in Engineering Materials – focus on synthesis and structuring of microporous adsorbents for biogas upgrading and gas storage

Ref 3520-2019

Division of Materials Science at Luleå University of Technology invites highly motivated candidates with an interest to carry out research in Engineering Materials with a focus on high temperature structural materials to apply for a PhD position. The research subject “Engineering Materials” within the Division of Materials Science at LTU has on-going research programs spanning over broad research areas of metallic and ceramic materials (High temperature intermetallics, aerospace materials, high strength steels, porous ceramics and energy harvesting materials). The division is part of the Department of Engineering Sciences and Mathematics. The Department has several other research topics relevant to materials research (e.g. material mechanics, machine elements and solid mechanics). In basic training, essentially two international training programs focusing on materials science are important for the department, the engineering program EEIGM and master’s program AMASE. There are many students who do project work and theses related to Engineering Materials research. The research area of “Engineering Materials” consists of five senior researchers, two technicians and seven graduate students.

Subject description
Engineering materials includes the field of material composition, structure, properties and production of materials – mainly metallic and ceramic – as well as application aspects.

Project description
Materials engineering covers the composition, structure, properties and processing of materials, primarily metals and ceramic materials, hybrids and their applications. The subject Engineering Materials at Division of Materials Science is leading the project “Nanobiogas” project funded by The Swedish Research Council (VR). The vision of NANOBIOGAS is to span a transformational approach towards a wide-spread and sustainable use of bio-methane in energy systems by the synthesis and nanostructurization of novel adsorbents and assembly of functional porous materials with conductive/thermoelectric materials for storage of bio-methane for transportation technologies. The project will facilitate the use of biogas/gaseous fuels that can be stored and used for transport or injected into the gas net, thereby increasing the flexibility of future renewable energy systems. The project proposes an innovative concept in which new adsorbents are synthesized and tailored at various length scales ranging from local atomic arrangement to microsturcture level and nanostructured into nanofibers (1D), laminates (2D) and monoliths (3D) for upgrading and storage of biogas. The project requires specialized knowledge of design and synthesis of microporous adsorbents, tailoring of adsorptive properties, gas separation and storage of gases in porous materials.

Duties
Working as a doctoral student is a great opportunity to self-define daily tasks and how they will be implemented. You will act and train yourself as a project manager combined with your own education and development. Plus, you will have the opportunity to grow as a teacher.

Qualifications
In order to be eligible for the position you must have an MSc in Chemistry, Materials Science, physics, engineering or related degree. Previous experience in one or more of the following areas: Zeolite synthesis, Metal organic framework synthesis, Gas separation, Structured adsorbents is desirable.

For further information about a specific subject see; General curricula for the Board of the faculty of science and technology
