Subject: 16.11.13 PhD/Postdoc position in Molecular Dynamics of facilitated transport in membranes for carbon capture at the University of Edinburgh
EU/UK nationals only.

Applications are invited for a 36 month early stage postgraduate 
research position in the Institute for Material and Processes within 
the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh.

For applicants with MSc or MEng Degree the post will lead to a 
PhD degree in Chemical Engineering; however applicants with a PhD 
degree in Chemical Engineering, Material Science, Physical Chemistry 
or a related area are also encouraged to apply.

Background: This position is a part of a larger scale research 
consortium with overall objective to address the cost, energy and 
process constraints which make the CO2 capture in 
pre and post-combustion processes currently not viable in real 
industrial applications. This will be achieved through the 
development of innovative materials, membranes and processes for 
CO2 capture.

This specific project will use molecular simulations to 
provide a better understanding of the facilitated transport 
mechanisms in polymer membranes. The information obtained at the 
molecular level will then be fed into the process modelling and 
optimization with a view to guide the development of novel membranes 
and materials. The project is expected to interact closely with the 
other researchers in the consortium, who will develop and test the 
new membranes in permeation experiments.
