PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in for calculating the biodiversity impacts of global, non-food biomass trade
The PhD project is a part of the BAMBOO project with partners in the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Peru and Tanzania. The project aims to improve the tools to assess the impacts of international trade of non-food biomass on biodiversity, to help policymakers, retailers and other stakeholders to assess and mitigate their impacts. We plan to develop models to quantify biodiversity impacts using four indicators: species richness, mean species abundance, functional diversity and ecosystem services and we will use a combination of existing models and newly developed ones. To improve the representation of trade, we will create a new, hybrid multiregional input-output (MRIO) model based on the monetary MRIO EXIOBASE and the biomass-specific FABIO models linked to the impact assessment databases LC-IMPACT and GLOBIO.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in designing hydrogen resistant metallic materials by additive manufacturing
Hydrogen is considered as a clean energy carrier for the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. However, the application of hydrogen energy can be decelerated due to the inevitable embrittling effect when hydrogen interacts with metal. Additive manufacturing (AM) has shown its uniqueness in producing complex multifunctional components for existing applications. It has also been proposed as a promising approach to develop metallic materials that can tolerate hydrogen damage, not only in the hydrogen value chain, but also for subsea service in the oil and gas sector. Nevertheless, little is known about hydrogen embrittlement resistance of AM materials. In this project, you are expected to employ the state-of-the-art testing techniques developed at MTP, to study both the AM and conventional metallic materials, for instance high-strength steels and nickel alloys, on:
