PhD researcher in Adsorption

The adsorption team of the Department of Chemical Engineering (Prof. J. Denayer) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel aims at the development of better and sustainable separation processes. In the present project, adsorption equilibria and transport properties will be determined experimentally. A model for gas-liquid-solid adsorption equilibria will be developed.Research activities in these PhD projects include characterization of the adsorption properties of the materials via a range of experimental methods (gravimetry, volumetry, calorimetry, porosimetry,…) available in the research group; modeling of the adsorptive separation process.

Admission requirements

Preferably, the candidate owns a degree in Chemical Engineering, Bio-engineering or (Physical) Chemistry. Experience is a plus.
