Graduate studies in Environmental Science at the University of Guelph Ridgetown Campus
University of Guelph My research group is looking to recruit 3 graduate students for a range of projects focused on waste valorization and environmental sustainability of livestock and poultry production. Interested candidates with a background or interest in agriculture, renewable energy, sustainability, microbiology, or engineering are welcome to apply. For additional information about prospective projects and studying at the University of Guelph, please email Brandon Gilroyed at firstname.lastname@example.org
Opportunities for students
University of Guelph The Bio-Renewable Innovation Lab at the School of Engineering, University of Guelph is hiring PhD students with research experience in biomass/waste conversion and bioproduct development. There are currently 3 PhD positions available. The technology to convert wet waste into valuable hydrocarbon fuels, materials, and chemicals becomes promising, and this relies on unique advancements in fuel processing engineering and waste industry design. The research will undertake studies on the process and technology to convert biomass waste into a varying range of hydrocarbons to optimize the process. The research requires both modelling and experimental studies to analyze the flexibility of the waste-to-energy process and the fuel properties of hydrocarbons as well as chemicals. The selected candidates will be part of a multi-disciplinary team supporting a broad range of biomass conversion and biofuel, biochemical and biomaterials production activities.
Highly qualified candidates interested in joining the research group as a PhD student are welcome to send their resume and transcripts to Professor Animesh Dutta by email (email@example.com).
Candidates from Mechanical or Chemical Engineering discipline with strong background in chemistry, heat transfer, and modelling with previous publication(s) in Q1 journals are preferred. A minimum of A- Guelph Equivalent from their most recent study is required for the PhD positions. International applicants can check the International Credential Guidelines to verify that they meet the requirement.
We thank all interested applicants. However, only selected candidates will be contacted.
University of Trento The Biomass Lab – Green Process Engineering research group under the guidance of professor Luca Fiori is looking for PhD research students with research experience in biomass/waste conversion and bioproduct development. The approach to research will be primarily that typical of the chemical and process engineer, where experimentation in the lab will be performed in strict conjunction with process design, modeling, and optimization activities. The PhD positions are primarily intended for chemical, environmental, energy, and industrial engineers. The candidates are expected to have skills both in lab test execution and in software utilization (with commercial codes such as Aspen Plus and/or programming codes such as MATLAB), and should be effective in their working capability in a research group comprising researchers with different expertise profiles (e.g. experts in wastewater treatments and in the agronomy sector). Prospective talented PhD students are welcome to send their CV with list of publications to firstname.lastname@example.org Luca Fiori, PhD in Chemical Engineering, Associate Professor Green Process Engineering Energy and Green Technologies Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering & C3A - Center Agriculture Food Environment University of Trento Trento, Italy Web http://lucafiori.dicam.unitn.it/ http://www.dicam.unitn.it/en/94/biomasses Publications https://scholar.google.it/citations?user=0FxUZEIAAAAJ&hl=it&oi=ao

IMT Mines Albi, RAPSODEE Center PhD position available at IMT-Mines Albi (Albi, France) in collaboration with PROMES (Font-Romeu, France), supervised by Prof Ange Nzihou and Dr Gilles Flamant. Title: Graphenic-like materials from biomass and biowastes using thermal treatments Please see full description using the link below
PhD position on combustion of biosourced fuels
IMT Mines Albi In close collaboration with an industrial partner, the work aims at understanding the behavior and mechanisms related to the combustion of densified biomass under conditions close to those of an industrial site. The PhD will also focus on the optimization of current processes. The observed behavior will be compared to that of fossil fuels currently used, with the objective of assessing the potential impact of this fuel replacement in terms of Quality, Health, Safety & Environment (QHSE), which should allow to define the strategy for implementing this solution in the on-site. Expected profile: The candidate should hold a Master Degree in Chemical Engineering, Process, Environmental, or Materials Engineering, preferably specialized in combustion, energy (renewable), biomass and/or biorefinery. He/she will have to demonstrate curiosity and scientific rigor, perseverance, hindsight, a sense of listening and teamwork. A good skill in oral/writing English would be much appreciated.
