(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc – Digital Twins for Dynamic Coastal Dune Fronts for Safety and Ecosystem Development under Increased Climate Pressure

Innovative coastal protection strategies are needed in view of increasing pressures on coastal systems due to stronger climatic forcing and ecosystem decline. Increasing knowledge on the physical and ecological processes that govern dynamic coastal systems allows for innovations in coastal protection strategies. The development of dunes in front of dikes is such an innovation. Combined dune/dike constructions may benefit coastal protection, create coastal habitats, provide room for recreation and increase biodiversity amongst other benefits for society. Although the combination of hard (dike) and soft (sediments) methods comes with increased uncertainties, knowledge on processes may be used to mitigate uncertainties and inform decision making in the design and maintenance of such combined structures. For this we want to develop a digital twin that uses the rich evidence base (consisting of models, data, experiences etc.) on coastal processes, ecology, dunes and dikes to inform decisions related to the design and maintenance of combined/hybrdid structures. This work fits in the European “DuneFront” project that is cooridnated by Ghent University and involves a network of 17 international univeristies, research organisations, governments and companies. DuneFront aims to optimize dune-dike hybrid Nature-based Solutions as a new generation of sustainable, inclusive and aesthetic blue-grey coastal management infrastructure, that further mainstreams biodiversity into one of the most important socio-economic challenges along European coasts.

(10) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc Position on Process Dynamics and Control for Direct Air Capture

To stop global warming, it is vital to reduce carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to net zero within the coming decades. This involves not only preventing new emissions (mitigation), but also actively removing CO2 from the atmosphere. This Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) serves to neutralize emissions from hard-to-abate sectors, (e.g. aviation), and to restore atmospheric CO2 concentrations to pre-industrial levels. Direct Air Capture (DAC) is one of the key technologies in this field, providing safe, permanent, flexible, and scalable negative emissions. DAC involves contacting large quantities of air with sorbent materials to capture CO2, and subsequently using temperature and/or pressure adjustments to release it in a pure stream for storage or conversion. This regeneration step is energy-intensive, and therefore expensive. In this project, we seek explore control strategies that will allow a DAC plant to make efficient use intermittent supplies of renewable energy. In this project, you will build a mathematical model of a Direct Air Capture installation, with a focus on weather and energy availability dynamics. You will study the sensitivity of the system, and derrive simplified/black-box models based on its output data. Lastly, you will develop optimization-based predictive control strategies and assess their effectiveness for optimising DAC under variable conditions.

(11) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: PostDoc position: Temperature effects on microbial electrosynthesis from CO2

Power-to-Chemicals and Power-to-Fuels processes are the future of the chemical industry. The chemical industry is a major greenhouse gas emitter. To meet their GHG emission reduction target, the chemical industry must use alternative carbon sources (e.g. CO2) and electricity-based processes (Power-to-X). The perspective of a highly electrified chemical industry where renewable feedstocks and energy are the basic ingredients of chemicals is very appealing to many societal, industrial and governmental stakeholders. Microorganisms are able to grow on electrodes and utilize renewable electricity to convert CO2 to valuable chemicals. This Power-to-X process is called microbial electrosynthesis (MES), and is the focus of this postdoctoral project. This postdoc project is part of a larger project (2 PhD and 2 postdocs) and a consortium composed of eight international companies, which all together will investigate heat in CO2 electrolyzers (including MES). A major hurdle in upscaling CO2 electrolyzers is that a significant part of the heat that is generated adversely affects component stability, product throughput and selectivity. In this postdoc project, our state-of-the-art MES process will be used (converting CO2 to C2-C6 carboxylic acids and alcohols) and our distinctive approach will determine the temperature dependency of the biofilm’s functionality and stability as well as the temperature effects at the reactor scale. We will use the attained insights to develop a scalable process under industrially relevant conditions.

(12) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc CirculaREE

The European Union (EU) lists Rare-Earth Elements (REEs) as critical raw materials with highest rank in terms of supply risks. For this reason, enhancing the circularity of REEs – that is, the potential reuse, remanufacturing, or recycling of REEs – is a top priority. To increase the circularity potential of REEs, the products containing REEs – such as electric motors – should be (re)designed to optimize each stage of the product’s life cycle. Obviously, the (re)design affects manufacturing, service-life, and end-of-life processing routes, and, consequently, the circularity of REEs. However, this poses several integration challenges, as different stages of the product’s life cycle require highly specialized knowledge from different stakeholders. A prominent example is the extremely low recycling rate (< 1%) for REE from NdFeB permanent magnets, despite more than a decade of intensive scientific and engineering research efforts and urgency from the EU. To address this problem, we propose a research project that combines knowledge from industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, and materials science.

(19) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc Cyclic Load Behaviour of Complex Bonded Steel-Composite Joints

Reaching energy transition goals of 2030 and 2050 require multiple increases in production capacity and cost reduction of support structures for wind turbines offshore. With the increasing size of turbines and the deeper location of wind farms, the monopile foundations of offshore wind turbines increase in size, weight, and cost. Jackets can be attractive alternative because multi-membered circular hollow section (CHS) support structures are lighter than monopiles. However, the complex welds result in reduced fatigue resistance of structural joints of steel circular hollow sections thus higher costs and longer production route for jackets than for monopiles. In the project WrapNode-II, TU Delft leads research with industrial partners following up the results in WrapNode-I, enabling implementation of the innovative, bonded, wrapped composite joint in jackets for offshore wind turbines. We aim to characterise and further understand full-scale and multi-axial behaviour and influence of offshore environment on durability of the joints.

(21) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc positions in the Field of Wind Farm Control

Wind energy is crucial for realizing climate neutrality, energy independence, and energy security. With the increased penetration of renewables in the electricity grid, there is a strong need for control technology to determine the number of electrons to produce and their destination (e.g., grid, storage, hydrogen) for maximum value to the energy system. Whereas the technology available on the market exclusively maximizes the energy yield, the future lies with optimization for cost of valued energy, which considers energy security, storage, fluctuating electricity prices, turbine component wear, and turbine lifetime. With several partners in the EU we will develop open-source technology for resilient, and data-enabled offshore wind farm control and co-design. For multiple projects we are currently looking for several Postdocs.
