Postdoctoral Researcher, Multiscale Modelling Of Photocatalytic Reactors, School Chemistry, NUI

National University of Ireland,Galway€38,631 - €42,201 per year

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a full-time, fixed term position as a Postdoctoral Researcher within the School of Engineering at the National University of Ireland, Galway. The position is funded by the H2020 programme (Grant Agreement 862453) and is available from 1st December 2021 or as soon thereafter for a period of 18 months. The Project: FlowPhotoChem aims to develop and model an integrated modular system based on continuous-flow heterogeneous photo(electro)catalytic reactors to produce relevant chemicals such as ethylene in the chemical sector, precursor to ""green plastics"" and many other high-value chemicals using abundant renewable resources such as water, carbon dioxide and light. We aim to deliver cost-efficient small-scale systems for intermittent operation to respond to the needs of rural, isolated territories, and distributed manufacturing. Novel multifunctional photo(electro)catalytic materials integrated into practical and scalable reactors are required in Europe to maintain technological leadership in chemical manufacturing, while ensuring the deployment of sustainable and renewable processes in the circular economy and green industry for a low-carbon future. FlowPhotoChem will use the expertise of the partners to design, model, construct and validate an energy efficient integrated modular system with negative CO2 emissions, since concentrated CO2 will be valorised to high-value chemicals. The integrated system will be studied from a life cycle analysis perspective to quantify such effects, and to include a techno-economic study to quantify the cost of the technology and compare with comparable renewable solutions for the production of the same/similar chemicals. Job Description: The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Dr Rory Monaghan to develop a multi-physics (and potentially multi-scale) model to describe and predict the performance of gas-phase photocatalytic reactors, in particular for photocatalytic CO2 hydrogenation in a flow photoreactor. It will account for fluid dynamics, photochemical reaction, and heat transfer. The model will rely on input parameters derived both from experiments and multi-scale/atomistic simulations. The developed model will help to design the flow reactor to optimise space-time yields of the targeted compounds. Duties: Employment permit restrictions apply for this category of post Salary range : €38,631 - €42,201 per annum Start date : Position is available from December 2021.
