Engineering & Technology – UK Jobs

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Terahertz Sensing

Engineering & Technology - UK Jobs

College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, School of Engineering
Location: University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham UK
Due to limited funding, the maxium salary to be offered on this post is £37,467
Fixed Term contract for up to 6 months with possible extension to 15 months subject to funding extension.
Closing date: 29th July, 2022
Background:
The terahertz frequency range (100 GHz to 3 THz) is an emerging area for the electromagnetic spectrum for many chemical, biological and security sensing applications. One area where terahertz is predicted to have a significant impact is in biology, particularly biological liquids. However, the relatively long wavelength of terahertz radiation poses a barrier towards the characterisation of small quantities of biological liquids and new techniques are required to improve the sensitivity and reduce the sample size.
The aim of this EPSRC funded project led by Dr Stephen Hanham is to develop a lab-on-a-chip (LOC) device for biological liquid sensing by integrating terahertz sensors into microfluidic chips. These LOC devices will be capable of rapidly sensing free-flowing bio-liquids and are expected to lead to a 10x increase in sensing sensitivity, allowing single cells to be analysed.
Summary of Role:
Candidates are invited to apply for a postdoctoral researcher position in the Emerging Devices and Technologies Lab in the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Birmingham. The successful candidate will lead the research activities towards the realisation of a combined terahertz fluid sensor and microfluidic chip that pushes the limits of sensitivity for the measurement of a range of chemical and biological liquids. The project will involve designing terahertz resonators and performing electromagnetic simulations, high frequency microwave/terahertz characterisation and cleanroom fabrication. The project will benefit from collaborations with the Healthcare Technologies Institute at the University of Birmingham and the Department of Materials at Imperial College London.
Main Duties
The responsibilities may include some but not all of the responsibilities outlined below.
Lead the daily research activities related to the project
Analyse and interpret data and apply knowledge in a way which develops new intellectual understanding
Disseminate research findings for publication, research seminars etc
Supervise students on research related work and provide guidance to PhD students where appropriate to the discipline
Contribute to developing new models, techniques and methods
Undertake management/administration arising from research
Contribute to Departmental/School research-related activities and research-related administration
Person Specification:
First degree in electrical engineering, physics or equivalent qualification
Hold or close to completing a PhD degree relevant to the project area
Demonstrable experience working with microwave, mm-wave or terahertz technologies
Experience performing electromagnetic simulations in CST, HFSS or similar
Cleanroom fabrication experience highly desired
Ability to communicate complex information clearly
Ability to work independently

PhD studentship: Electro-catalysis of water splitting for green hydrogen production

Engineering & Technology - UK Jobs

Award Summary
100% of Home tuition fees plus an annual living allowance of £15,840.
Overview
Water Electrolysis is one of the promising routes to green hydrogen production and mid to long term storage of the intermittent renewable energy. Hydrogen and synthetic fuels are envisaged to play central roles in energy storage, renewable heat and the decarbonisation of transport as more countries pursue deep decarbonisation strategies. For the past seven years, more renewable power (260 GW) was added to the grid annually than fossil fuels and nuclear combined.
The successful candidate will join the Newcastle team and will work closely with an international team of PhD students and Postdoctoral researchers across ten world leading European institutions on the “Anion Exchange Membrane Electrolysis from Low-grade water sources” research programme.
Our vision is to harness and convert deep offshore wind and store it in the form of Hydrogen. However, there are several challenges including high materials and energy costs in purifying and desalinating sea water that restrict its use in water electrolysers for hydrogen production.
This PhD project will focus on developing new earth abundant electrocatalyst for water splitting. The PhD project is flexible and will involve significant experimental work.

PhD Studentship: Towards an Artificial Operator: Hybrid Reactor Modelling for Enhanced Process Control

Engineering & Technology - UK Jobs

Award Summary
100% of tuition fees at the Home rate, plus an annual stipend of £17,300 in year 1, increasing to £18,300 in year 4 and an industrial top-up towards consumables and travel.
Overview
The transition to net zero will push the chemical industry to smaller, more remote plants operating intermittently requiring a step change in process automation and control. An artificial operator will steer the plant control system through changes in feedstock availability and maximise catalyst lifetime, as human operators currently do. This PhD project will explore hybrid approaches to reactor modelling which will be necessary to achieve this step change.
Hybrid approaches seek to combine data-driven modelling, which are more readily incorporated into plant diagnostic and control systems, with the basic physical laws. Existing data-driven approaches are not constrained by conservation laws, so can predict impossible situations and are not robust on extrapolation. Existing fundamental models are complex and often ill-constrained, time consuming to develop, and cannot be transferred between processes. Hybrid models can be developed to a complexity appropriate to data available.
The project will also address important scientific challenges in intelligent industry 5.0, future energy and digitalisation of process industries.
