Research Assistant (m/f/d) with the perspective of a doctorate – „Moderating effects of alcohols on the interfacial tensions in multiphase systems consisting of carbon dioxide and organic solvents“

The Institute of Advanced Optical Technologies – Thermophysical Properties (AOT-TP) focuses on the development and application of experimental and theoretical methods for the determination of thermophysical properties of fluids in energy and process engineering. In the context of a research project in the field of thermophysical property research for process engineering (download a detailed description here) the institute AOT-TP is looking for a

Research Assistant (m/f/d) with the perspective of a doctorate - "Moderating effects of alcohols on the interfacial tensions in multiphase systems consisting of carbon dioxide and organic solvents"

The area of responsibility includes

  • Development of the surface light scattering (SLS) method for an accurate determination of interfacial tensions in multiphase systems
  • Application of SLS technique to selected fluids at pressures up to 20 MPa
  • Theoretical determination of interfacial tensions in multiphase systems via molecular dynamics (MD) simulations
  • Development of a prediction model for the representation of the moderating effects of alcohols on the interfacial tensions in mixtures with carbon dioxide (CO2) and organic solvents
  • Close collaboration with the other members of the institute
  • Co-organization of exercises, seminars, and practical courses as well as supervision of students in the context of theses

Necessary qualification

  • Above-average degree in the field of engineering or natural sciences
  • Enthusiasm for independent scientific work
  • Strong interests in thermophysical property research as well as experimental and theoretical work
  • High level of commitment, ability to work in a team, and reliability
  • Good to very good knowledge of English

Remarks

We offer a multidisciplinary and international working environment with excellent potential for scientific and personal development.
