A 3-year PhD scholarships in high customization computed tomography is available at the Technical University of Denmark. The project will be supervised by Yi Yang.

  1. The successful applicant will join the Chemistry branch of the Centre for Energy Resources Engineering (CERE-KEMI), as a part of the Physical and Biophysical Chemistry section at DTU Chemistry and will be working with a team of gifted interdisciplinary young researchers.
  2. The project is a collaboration between DTU Chemistry and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland.
  3. The overarching goal of the project is to design microfluidic experiments that can be combined with novel imaging techniques (e.g. synchrotron radiation-based computed tomography) to observe and understand chemically induced microstructure evolution in porous media on varied length scales.
  4. The PhD applicant will have freedom in identifying key scientific challenges and propose innovative solutions.
  5. The specific tasks through which the research goal will be achieved will be agreed based on timely discussions between the candidate and the supervisor and will match the candidate’s competencies and interests to the extent possible

Eligibility Criteria

  1. Applicant should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree in chemical engineering, environmental engineering or mechanical engineering.
  2. It is important that the candidate is self-initiated, be considerate in being a team player, while feels comfortable to work independently in case of need. Emphasis will be put on the candidate’s ability to identify key scientific questions and to propose practical solutions.
  3. Good communication proficiency in English is favoured but not mandatory.
  4. All in all, we look for an ambitious and resilient young researcher who has the potential to bring changes to the state of the art in direct imaging of fluid-mediated microstructures evolution.
