Example effects include use of fluid-structure interactions; use of surface modifications (topography, chemical); self-assembly; and highly-parallel micro-assembly processes. You will study innovative assembly processes and explore and understand the underpinning physics. You will develop analytical or numerical models to gain systematic understanding and carry out experiments to verify the models, and quantify performance limits. You will be involved in the design, realisation and operation of experimental setups. You will explore the integration of new assembly processes into industrially viable chip assembly and packaging flows.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position on Artificial Intelligence for Collaborative Climate Risk Management

Climate changes, such as sea level rise, soil subsidence, extreme rainfall, and drought, induce new challenges and risks for real estate and infrastructures, especially in low lying urbanized deltas, as in the Netherlands. While people’s homes, communities, and livelihoods are at stake, real estate climate risks also stand to destabilize markets and society at large. Climate risk management requires collaborative, integrated strategies that cut across public, private, and civic spheres to achieve societal impact.

Your goal, in this PhD project, is to develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques for supporting an Integrative Forum (IF), which facilitates two-way exchange and knowledge co-creation on climate risk management. The IF, on the one hand, provides a ‘soft space’ for debate and reflection between research teams, societal partners, and citizens at large. On the other hand, the dialogue in the IF provides an opportunity for innovative research on institutionalized logics, tactics, and procedures that hinder or enable effective cross-disciplinary collaboration.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position on Synthesis of Sustainable Polymer Matrices

Carbon fibre reinforced polymer composites have unprecedented mechanical performance at low weight and contribute to a sustainable aviation. In carbon fibre epoxy prepreg systems epoxy monomers (Bisphenol-based) are crosslinked via multifunctional curing agents resulting in thermal, dimensional mechanical stability enabling supreme load transfer of the carbon fibres. Current manufacturing relies on Bisphenol-derived toxic and petroleum-based epoxy matrices that are affiliated with carcinogenic side effects thus considered for restricted use in EU; therefore developing alternative materials with high sustainability is of great societal relevance. This PhD position will explore novel routes for upgrading biobased sustainable molecules into monomer and curing agents that will constitute high performance polymer matrices. Scalability of synthetic routes will be governed and library of materials will be formed. Total cost, energy input, raw material input and CO2 footprint of each reaction is of relevance. Following that; curing characteristics and mechanical-chemical characterizations will be performed.

PhD position summary/title: PhD on development of new disordered electrode materials for batteries

We will be investigating a new class of materials featuring atomic-scale disorder between mobile light metal ions (A e.g. Li+, Na+) and transition metals (M; e.g. Co, Fe). This is a new concept, in stark contrast to conventional electrode materials in which A and M are perfectly segregated in alternating atomic layers. The disordered materials have already shown great promise for increased performance (higher capacity, higher rate capability, slower aging) that could translate directly to lighter, faster-charging, longer-lasting next-generation batteries, respectively. Beyond performance, the disordered concept allows for more flexibility on the choice of transition metal(s) used which directly affects the economic potential and societal impact in view of battery mass-production. Current state-of-the-art lithium-ion technology heavily relies on cobalt and nickel. These are both rather rare, costly-to-produce (and in the case of cobalt, ethically unacceptable, see e.g. link) metals which go directly against the principles of sustainability, environmental protection and the green energy transition. Disordered structures can accommodate cheap, benign, abundant transition metals such as iron and manganese, paving the way for sustainable mass-deployment of electrochemical energy storage for electric vehicles (electromobility) and renewable energy sources (grid scale). For a deeper dive into the concept and problematics around disordered electrodes, interested candidates are invited to watch a recent webinar of Prof. G. Ceder on the topic (link below).

PhD position summary/title: PhD researcher: Synthetic cells and sustainability: a philosophical assessment

The PhD project will be part of the BASYC (“Building a synthetic cell”) project, a Dutch national research programme funded through a Gravitation grant by OCW/NWO. BaSyC proposes to build a synthetic cell from the bottom-up, to elucidating the intricate working of cellular life. At the same time, this endeavour raises fascinating philosophical questions. This PhD project explores how BaSyC contribute future technologies that foster sustainability and societal equality. Based on the recommendations by the BaSyC future panel, resulting in the Position Paper “Society and Synthetic Cells”, the project will address three objectives:

1. Ensure that the synthetic cell contributes to the sustainability transition

The synthetic cell may contribute to the development of technologies which are sustainable and bio-compatible rather than disruptive, provided this type of research becomes part of a broader transition which involves cultural, political, and normative dimensions as well, i.e., a technology that is guided by respect for nature.

2. Organize societal participation in synthetic cell research

Establishing, regaining, and maintaining public trust in science requires genuine and sincere participation of civil society in scientific research in such a way that it may have important consequences for future developments in research and society. In order to ensure that synthetic cell technologies become sustainable rather than disruptive, an inclusive and participatory process of reflection is required, open to public intelligence, and sensitive to expectations and concerns.

3. Set up a platform for the interaction between researchers and societal stakeholders

Organize a platform for formal and informal communication in which researchers and societal stakeholders may participate from the beginning of the research process. Meetings with societal stakeholders should be organized on relevant issues at different moments of the project and should be designed as interstices: in-between spaces in which different meanings, interests and societal values come together and are explicated.

PhD position summary/title: PhD groundwater wells for heat storage: Methods for drilling and completion

The EU aims to have a net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) economy by 2050. At present, heating and cooling represent around 50% of the final energy use in Europe and are mainly supplied by fossil fuel derived energy. Because sustainable heat is mainly available in summer and demand is in winter, large scale seasonal heat storage is a key strategy to decarbonize heating in order to achieve EU ambitions. TU Delft leads a large European project that will showcase and develop full-scale application of heat storage (up to 90°C) in geothermal reservoirs using three different technologies: Aquifer, Borehole and Mine Thermal Energy Storage (ATES, BTES, MTES), at 6 different sites in Europe which together represent a relevant range of geological conditions across Europe. In this PhD project you will develop and test methods for drilling and completion of ATES wells with a focus on high temperature (>60-100°C) levels. You will contribute to a demonstration site, where technology will be investigated at field scale.

PhD position summary/title: PhD in Fractured Geothermal Reservoirs

In the global north, over 40% of the total energy consumption is used for heating and cooling of buildings. Geothermal energy has the potential to significantly decarbonise energy supplies not only for heating and cooling but also for electricity generation, and therefore make a major contribution to the transition to a sustainable and just low-carbon energy future.

Naturally occurring fractures often provide the primary permeability for fluid flow and heat transport in many geothermal reservoirs. However, predicting heat flow through fracture networks to assess the viability of a potential geothermal development is challenging due to the inherent uncertainties in the fracture network and its properties. To date, no systematic studies have aimed to establish the properties that fundamentally control the characteristics of heat flow in naturally fractured geothermal reservoirs. For example, it is unclear how the combination of hydraulic connectivity within the fracture network and the size of the less permeable matrix blocks impact heat flow, i.e., under which conditions heat flow in a fractured geothermal reservoir can be characterised by effective properties that approximate a single porosity system and when heat flow needs to be characterised by more complex approaches.
