Positions:

One PhD position and One post doc position in Anti-icing surfaces;

One post doc position in modelling and surface design for dropwise condensation)

The Department of Structural Engineering at the NTNU announces 01 vacant PhD and 01
vacant post doc position in the field of anti-icing surfaces. Both positions are for a period of
three (03) years.

Funding:

  1. Research Council of Norway’ FRINATEK program via the project titled Towards Design of Super-Low Ice Adhesion Surfaces (SLICE)
  2. Research Council of Norway’ PETROMAKS II program via the project Durable Arctic Icephobic Materials {AIM).

Position 1: One (01) vacant post doc position in the field of modelling and surface design for CO2 condensation. The position is for a two (02) years’ period and financed by the Research Council of Norway’ CLIMIT program via the project titled Superlyophobic surfaces for efficient separation and droplet condensation of CO2 (NanoDrop). The project is coordinated by SINTEF energy.

Position 2: The PhD position in anti-icing surfaces The primary objective of the SLICE project is to establish and evaluate design principles towards super-low ice adhesion surfaces, by developing models which couple the ice-solid interactions at atomistic scale to the interface crack initiation at macroscopic scale.

Position 3:The post doc position in anti-icing surfaces The primary objective of the AIM project is to develop and test bio-inspired robust icephobic materials, which can survive multiple harsh environmental cycles and impacts.

The post doc position in modelling and surface design for dropwise condensation. The ultimate goal of the project NanoDrop is to accelerate the process necessary for reaching full-scale CO2-capture by reducing cost and increasing energy-efficiency.
