The candidate will participate in the project VULKANO funded by the European Union under the H2020 Program (Grant Agreement number 723803). The project aims to improve the eco-efficiency and competitiveness of industrial furnaces, addressing and optimising the process design and its energy and environmental performance considering the whole production process (upstream/downstream processes) in the ceramic, steel and aluminium sectors.
In the framework of VULKANO project, CIRCE is looking for an R&D Engineer or Researcher to develop the concept design of energy recovery systems using Phase Change Materials (PCM) at high temperature. Moreover, he/she will support the integration of these systems into a new decision support tool that will be implemented in a holistic in-house modular software aiming to enhance the sustainability and competitiveness of the related industries. Therefore, knowledge regarding the sectors involved in the project, as well as in their related processes and equipment will be required.
Furthermore, the candidate is expected to have experience in the operation of industrial furnaces, as well as in the preparation an execution of research projects funded in public calls. Finally, experience in modelling and simulation of industrial processes is desirable.
We offer a permanent position for you to join a high-tech internationally recognized Research Centre in which your talent, passion and expertise will be fostered. Our flexible and modern working environment offers you a range of possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. This is your opportunity to contribute to the technology that will enable a sustainable society for tomorrow, taking part of a young team, with high development potential in a highly collaborative working environment.
