Objective of the position:

We are looking for Researchers to develop detailed dynamic simulation models for hydrogen-based processes as well as to analyse H2 and CO2 transport and storage options, including the implementation of digital twins for these technologies. This is a full-time 2-year contract with extension possibility based on project requirements.


Job Responsibilities:

  • Development of dynamic simulation models to analyse transport and storage of CO2
  • Implementation of digital twins
  • Engagement in development of other models in the project
  • Publication of methods and results in international scientific journals
  • Participation in grant calls and other funding opportunities


Job Requirements:

  • For Research Fellow: PhD in Chemical or Process Engineering, or a related field with at least 1 year of experience
  • For Research Associate: Master's in Chemical or Process Engineering, or a related field with at least 1 year of experience
  • Proven track record in mathematical modelling
  • Knowledge of chemical processes, state-of-the-art process simulation tools (Aspen Plus, HYSYS, UniSim Design, CHEMCAD etc.) and dynamic process simulations
  • Programming knowledge (preferably Python and MATLAB)
  • Ability to interact with other researchers and define a working structure
  • Good English writing and communication skills
  • Good interpersonal skills for working in an international research team with people of different backgrounds


What TUM CREATE offers you:

  • Competitive salary that commensurate with experience
