We are seeking a Post-Doctoral Researcher to join the Lab of Professor Ranade on a 12 month fixed term contract funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The project involves a new way of removing sulphur from fuels. You will be involved in developing a novel, hydrodynamic cavitation based oxidative desulphurisation process. Hydrodynamic cavitation devices based on rotational flows will be used for this purpose. You will design systematic experiments of oxidative desulphurisation using these cavitation devices; first with model organic liquids such as dodecane and then with real fuels such as diesel. You will also be involved in developing computational models to simulate oxidative desulphurisation experiments. It is expected that the project will lead to a new, truly distributed way of removing sulphur from transportation fuels.

The successful candidate must have:
Degree in chemical engineering or related engineering subject.

  • Hold a PhD in Chemical Engineering or a related subject.
  • At least three years research experience of using hydrodynamic cavitation for advanced oxidation processes at postgraduate or postdoctoral level.
  • Demonstrable experience of developing computational models of advanced oxidation processes based on hydrodynamic cavitation
