UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD

 

DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERING SCIENCE

 

Research Assistant on modelling cavitation dynamics, reaction kinetics, and/or techno-economics for sonochemistry.

 

Salary: Grade 6 £32,332 - £38,205 per annum

 

We are seeking a full-time or part-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant or Research Assistant to join the Physical Acoustics Lab and Prof Rene Banares-Alcantara at the Department of Engineering Science at the Begbroke Science Park. The post is funded by the EPSRC and is fixed-term from October 1st 2023 to May 31st 2025.

 

The EPSRC funded us to explore the sonocatalytic cracking of ammonia to form hydrogen gas. Part of the grant is to model 1) cavitation dynamics, 2) reaction kinetics, and 3) techno-economic models of the sonochemistry process being developed in the research group. Thus, the applicants will be responsible for developing numerical models and interpreting their predictions.

 

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor James Kwan (email: james.kwan@eng.ox.ac.uk)
