PhD scholarship in novel methods for industrial process integration and electrification

The PhD scholarship at DTU Mechanical Engineering will be associated with the SuPrHeat project and focus on solving the challenges related to making industry's high-temperature demands part of the green transition of the energy system. 

DTU Mechanical Engineering has recently announced the opening of a Ph.D. position which is associated with the SuPrHeat project and focuses on process integration options for heating and cooling demands in combination with efficient electrification using high-temperature vapor compression heat pumps. 

The Ph.D. project will focus on industrial process integration by applying and developing methods for integration between the process demands and advanced heat pump cycles for high-temperature supply. The Ph.D. project will also contribute to a framework for providing a software solution for decision makers and system designers in the field of industrial heat pump systems. The work will be closely related to research in high-temperature heat pumps and demonstration of these in the production processes of the industrial partners in the SuPrHeat project.

The Ph.D. will be part of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) located in Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark. DTU Mechanical Engineering covers the fundamental engineering disciplines within Solid mechanics, Fluid mechanics, Coastal and Maritime Engineering, Energy systems and energy conversion, Materials and Surface Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Engineering design and Product development. The department has a scientific staff of about 135 persons, 100 PhD students and a technical/administrative support staff of about 80 persons.

Application deadline is 15.05.2021. Further details about the position may be found here.
