The Insti­tu­tes of Pro­cess Engi­nee­ring and Envi­ron­men­tal Tech­no­logy and the Insti­tute of Fluid Mecha­nics offer tog­e­ther, sub­ject to the avai­la­bi­lity of resour­ces, five posi­ti­ons as
Rese­arch Asso­ciate/PhD Stu­dent (Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to RL Marie-Curie) star­ting Sep­tem­ber 1, 2021. The posi­ti­ons are limi­ted for 36 mon­ths. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz-WissZeitVG).

Work­ing field:

  • Over­all tasks for the joint team of PhD can­di­da­tes are the deve­lop­ment of models for flota­tion pro­ces­ses, imple­men­ta­tion of these models in com­pu­ter codes, and per­forming expe­ri­ments to vali­date the models.
  • Each PhD can­di­date will focus on one of the five spe­ci­fic topics:
1. Inter­ac­tion bet­ween par­ti­cles and bub­bles by means of attach­ment
2. Par­ti­cle-bub­ble col­li­sion in tur­bu­lent flow
3. Bub­ble coale­scence and bre­akup in the pre­sence of par­ti­cles and sur­fac­tants
4. Tur­bu­lence modu­la­tion due to par­ti­cles and bub­bles
5. Par­ti­cle fate model­ling on the basis of in-depth auto­ma­ted mine­ra­logy
For more infor­ma­tion on the 5 spe­ci­fic topics and the requested pro­file please con­sults:
  • Apart from rese­arch work, the can­di­da­tes are expec­ted to par­ti­ci­pate in trai­nings, to carry out pro­ject manage­ment tasks, to write a PhD the­sis and to write sci­en­ti­fic arti­cles as well as to be invol­ved in depart­mental and group activi­ties.
