The ideal candidate will have experience in one, or more, of the following areas:
- Process engineering and process modelling
- Building large-scale optimization models of the energy system
- Conducting big data analysis and developing large databases
Applications are welcome from all areas of engineering, especially chemical engineering, and are encouraged from under-represented groups including, but not limited to: women; First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples; persons with disabilities; visible minorities; and persons of any sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
A background in ASPEN, Modelica, Modelon, or Python programming is considered a strong asset. The PhD start date is negotiable, ideally commencing in Fall 2021 or Winter/Spring 2022.
