Position type: Full time
Reference number: EUR-289450
This post-doctoral position is expected to be developed in collaboration with researchers from the Project 43 of the CO2 Abatement Programme of the Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI) at the University of Sao Paulo (USP) -- summary of the program and projects can be found in the RCGI website at www.usp.br/rcgi
The main goal of this project is to stablish the most adequate experimental conditions and methodologies to determine (and then proceed with the determinations) of fundamental properties, such as solubility, phase behavior/phase equilibrium, viscosity, density, pH, of gaseous mixtures (CO2, CH4, Ethane, H2S, among others) and complex fluids (salt water, crude oil, and others) in several conditions of pressure, temperature and compositions, for applications of interest to the oil and gas industry, specially in connection with oil and gas exploration/extraction, CO2 valuation and CO2 capture and storage. The development of the research would lead to the stablishment of a database of such properties for the direct use in several other projects in the area.
The post-doctoral candidate should also colaborate with other projects of the Supercritical Fluids Lab, such as CO2 valoration/abatement, new materials for CO2 absorption, etc. He/she will also help in the implantation of the Supercritical Fluids Lab, supporting equipment instalation, the training of lab personnel, the development of experimental methodology and instrumentation adequated to this research.
The candidate must have a bachelor’s degree and a PhD in in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering (or similar area) and previous experience with scientific research in those areas (demonstrated by publications in international periodicals of relevance). Previous experience in post-doctoral stages in this area is desirable.
The selected undergraduate candidate will be given scholarship granted by FUSP - Fundação de Apoio a Universidade de São Paulo. More information and application at http://www.rcgi.poli.usp.br/opportunities (REF 18PDR056) or http://www.rcgi.poli.usp.br/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/18PDR056.pdf.
