Postdoctoral fellowship in hydrothermal carbonization of sewage sludge

This is NTNU

At NTNU, creating knowledge for a better world is the vision that unites our 7 400 employees and 42 000 students.

We are looking for dedicated employees to join us.

You will find more information about working at NTNU and the application process here.

About the position

A two-year Postdoctoral position is available at the Department of Energy and Process Engineering, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). This position is a part of a collaborative project “Negative CO2 emission gas power plant” involving Gdańsk University of Technology (GUT), Polish Academy of Sciences (IMP PAN, Gdańsk), Wrocław University of Science and Technology, NTNU, Sintef Energy Research (Trondheim) and three other partners in Poland, funded by the POLNOR CCS programme.  The aim of the project is to obtain negative CO2 emission power production from sewage sludge by using an innovative power cycle coupled with CCS. Hydrothermal carbonization followed by plasma gasification is employed to produce gaseous fuel from wet sewage sludge, followed by oxy-combustion in the gas turbine. Water will be added for cooling processes in the combustion chamber. Subsequently water will be condensed, and CO2 will be compressed and pumped to underground storage. As sewage sludge is considered as biomass, the plant will be CO2 negative.

The specific task of the position will be hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) of sewage sludge for optimization of the mechanical dewatering. High moisture content, as well as sticky nature of sewage sludge, is problematic as drying of this material is energy intensive. HTC of sewage sludge will make it hydrophobic, thus enhancing the mechanical dewatering and subsequent drying, making it more energy efficient along the whole supply chain.

The position’s day-to-day supervision is by Professor Quang Khanh Tran, NTNU.

Duties of the position

The main duty of this position is determination of the optimum HTC parameters from energy efficiency point of view, with special consideration of minimizing the energy cost of subsequent drying by maximization of the mechanical dewatering capacity.

Required selection criteria

A postdoctoral fellowship is a qualification position in which the main objective is qualification academic research work. Completion of a Norwegian doctoral degree in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, or physical chemistry or a corresponding foreign doctoral degree recognized as equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree is required.

If, for any reason, you have taken a career break or have had an atypical career and wish to disclose this in your application, the selection committee will take this into account, recognizing that the quantity of your research may be reduced as a result.

The appointment is to be made in accordance with the regulations in force concerning State Employees and Civil Servants and national guidelines for appointment as PhD, post doctor and research assistant.

Other qualifications:

  • Experience in experimental study and process simulation of hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) of sewage sludge or biomass.
  • Excellent English skills, spoken and written
  • Good academic writing and presentation skills.
  • In addition, expertise in CFD modelling for non-Newtonian fluid is desirable.

Personal characteristics

  • Highly dedicated and committed.
  • Well organized and disciplined
  • Good teamwork and communication skills

In the evaluation of which candidate is best qualified, emphasis will be placed on education, experience and personal suitability, in terms of the qualification requirements specified in the advertisement.

Postdoctoral Fellow: developing strategic simulation tools for lithium-ion battery (LIB) recycling

This is NTNU

At NTNU, creating knowledge for a better world is the vision that unites our 7 400 employees and 42 000 students.

We are looking for dedicated employees to join us.

You will find more information about working at NTNU and the application process here.

About the position

We are seeking a Postdoc for developing a data infrastructure and simulation tools for identifying resource efficiency options and business opportunities related to lithium-ion battery (LIB) reuse and recycling.

The expected increase of electro-mobility and transition to renewable energy will lead to an exponential growth of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). This has significant impacts for global battery raw material cycles: While demand for these materials is expected to rise considerably resulting in concerns for the security of supply, potentials for reuse and recycling of LIBs will eventually also grow and create opportunities for increasing resource efficiency and mitigating supply risks.

Norway is both a large producer of battery raw materials and a first mover within the electromobility sphere. This opens up new opportunities for Norwegian companies to take business positions in the battery supply chain. In order to do so, they depend on a robust understanding of the battery supply chains, the relevant material cycles, and the factors influencing them. The BATMAN project, which is coordinated by the Eyde Cluster, aims at developing a strategic tool based on Material Flow Analysis (MFA) to enable companies to position themselves within the LIB value chain.

The BATMAN project uses a transdisciplinary approach and analyses LIB recycling from different complementary perspectives: Analysis of material cycles and development of the dynamic simulation tool and scenarios (PhD student and Postdoc at NTNU), analysis of trends in mobility and the vehicle fleet (TØI), in battery chemistry (IfE), in legal conditions (UiA), and identification of opportunities for new business models (UiA).

The project has an advisory board constituted of several global metal associations (Nickel Institute, Cobalt Institute, International Aluminium Institute). Their interest in the project is to better understand how different scenarios for LIBs penetration, reuse, and recycling may affect the global metal cycles. At the same time, NTNU is working with the Nickel Institute and Yale Unversity on the development of a strategic tool for monitoring and visualizing the global nickel cycle.

The Head of the Department of Energy and Process Engineering is Professor Terese Løvås. The position’s supervisor is Professor Daniel B. Müller.

Duties of the position

Duties include:

  • to develop a data infrastructure for Norwegian, European, and global LIB production, use, and end-of-life management
  • to map the global cycles of key battery materials
  • to develop dynamic simulation tools and scenarios for LIB reuse and recycling

All of the tasks are developed in close cooperation with a PhD student at NTNU involved in BATMAN, as well as the other partners.

Selection criteria

A postdoctoral research fellowship is a qualification position in which the main objective is qualification for work in academic positions.

Essential Qualifications:

  • You must have completed a Norwegian doctoral degree in natural science or engineering or corresponding foreign doctoral degree recognized as equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree.
  • strong modelling competency, if possible with background in MFA
  • strong competency and documented experience in programming (including Python and SQL)
  • excellent communication skills
  • high level of written and oral English language skills

Desirable Qualifications:

  • Norwegian language skills are an advantage
  • experience in working with industry
  • familiarity with the topic of batteries, reuse, and recycling


The appointment is to be made in accordance with the regulations in force concerning State Employees and Civil Servants and national guidelines for appointment as PhD, post doctor and research assistant.

If, for any reason, you have taken a career break or have had an atypical career and wish to disclose this in your application, the selection committee will take this into account, recognizing that the quantity of your research may be reduced as a result.

Personal characteristics

  • Strong analytical skills
  • Creativity
  • Critical thinking
  • Confidence in working independently
  • Ability and willingness to work in inter- and transdisciplinary teams
