Open vacancy: PhD position in France

Ph.D. thesis position
Chemical-engineering thermodynamics

Title: Innovative modeling methods to describe fluid properties

This work is devoted to the improvement of two types of thermodynamic models (equations of state) applicable to pure species and mixtures following innovative and unexplored methodologies:

  1. Development of a SAFT-type model 1. and the optimal way to parameterize it with emphasis on the association term 2,

  2. A fully novel way to improve cubic equations of state – deriving from the Van der Waals theory – through the study of the temperature dependence of their attractive term.

This challenge is likely to highlight new horizons for thermodynamic modelling; it is ideal for students who are ready to commit themselves 100% and participate in an ambitious project.

Dates: Start date: between October 2023 and December 2023 (depending on candidate preference). The duration of the doctoral thesis is 3 years.

Place: Team ThermE (thermodynamics and energy),of the LRGP (Laboratory for Reactions and Chemical Engineering) –University of Lorraine, Nancy, France.

Ph.D. supervisors:

  • Jean-Noël Jaubert, full professor.

  • Romain Privat, associate professor.
