We shape the future through innovative education and groundbreaking research. Drawing on our location in the Arctic region, we create global societal benefit.

The subject of Energy Engineering at the Division of Energy Science belongs to the Department of Engineering Sciences and Mathematics. At the subject of Energy Engineering we work closely with companies/industries in both research and student projects. The research conducted has high international standards, and we collaborate with researchers around the world.

The Division of Energy Science at Luleå University of Technology has an open PhD position in the subject of Energy Engineering. Your research studies will focus on developing a new technology based on immobilized ionic liquids.

SUBJECT DESCRIPTION
Energy engineering includes the development of technologies and processes for a sustainable energy supply. The research focuses on bioenergy technologies and energy efficient use in industry and society.

DUTIES
As a PhD student, you will work for a doctoral degree as the final goal, according to the goals specified in the Higher Education Ordinance. In parallel with your thesis work, you will also develop your general skills by taking courses as part of research education.

The PhD project is part of a four-year research project, together with the partner of RISE-ETC and industrial partners, supported by the Swedish Energy Agency. The overall aim of the project is to develop a new technology for CO2 separation based on IL-immobilization with confinement to improve both CO2 absorption capacity and rate. The work covers design, synthesis, characterization and performance testing. This project is a cooperation with Nanjing Tech University (NTU), in China, and part of the work may be carried out at NTU in China if necessary.

Within the PhD research project, we will 1) design and screen ionic liquids based on the developed theoretical model and software COSMO-RS, and then synthesize promising ionic liquids followed by experimental characterization, 2) identify substrates based on literature survey, with subsequent experimental immobilization of ionic liquids and characterization, 3) conduct performance testing for the immobilized ionic liquids at both normal and relatively high pressures combined with co-solvent addition, and the mechanistic study will be conducted within the cooperation with NTU, 4) “Proof-of-concept” via testing with real flue gas from a biomass CHP boiler during the final part of the project.

Full-time fixed-term employment for four years (up to maximum five years) located in Luleå, Sweden.

We shape the future through innovative education and groundbreaking research. Drawing on our location in the Arctic region, we create global societal benefit.

We are looking for a doctoral student to work in the architecture research group at Luleå University of Technology in Luleå. The doctoral position is unique and will lead to a much sought-after competence and will give you as a researcher the opportunity to work in a creative research environment both at Luleå University of Technology and in the organizations and companies with which we cooperate.

You will be part of a research group that works with architecture technology and conservation, urban design and planning, and landscape and transport planning (see www.ltu.se/architecture). You will acquire knowledge and skills and be part of a creative research environment, working in cooperation with industry partners.

SUBJECT DESCRIPTION
Architecture comprises building design, urban and traffic planning, where aesthetics is joined with functional, technical, practical and economic dimensions in relation to people, sustainability, landscape, and the built environment.

PROJECT DESCRITPTION
Sweden’s national targets to achieve 100% renewable electricity production by 2040 and be carbon neutral by 2045 pose several challenges to both urban and rural areas that have historic and cultural values. The installation of new energy technologies (e.g., PV) in these contexts for the building and urban adaptation to climate change could be controversial if their heritage values are to be preserved. This project aims to develop, test, and assess an approach by which local communities living and/or working in the context of historic urban and rural landscapes are motivated to take active part in the climate and energy transformations of their buildings and urban environments.

DUTIESThe work will be carried out in the Architecture group of Luleå University of technology in Luleå. The research field is multi-disciplinary and of both a scientific and an applied nature including fields such as architecture, urban planning, and transport. The PhD student will work with participatory design methods, building-integrated energy thinking, heritage value assessment methods, and energy system engineering in real case studies. All the scientific work will be presented in English in articles in scientific journals.
