OFFER DESCRIPTION

Czech Technical University in Prague now offers a new fellowship program, the CTU Global Postdoc Fellowship. This new and attractive two-year fellowship-program offers excellent researchers who have recently completed their PhD the chance to continue their research career at CTU. Fellows receive a two year fellowship and become members of a team led by a mentor.

The research topic focuses on integration of a Power-to-hydrogen storage system with a CCU technology that captures CO2 from either fossil or renewable/alternative fuels and converts to methane or methanol. Electricity input is from a renewable energy source (PV, wind). The work shall include numerical modelling as well as experimental and development work to investigate the integration of the technology chain in the laboratory pilot scale and to validate the numerical models.
