Encadrant: Vasco Guerra
Date de début: Septembre / Octobre 2023
Durée: 12-18 months
Salaire / Gratification par mois (€): 1741€

Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral Research position within the N-PRiME group of IPFN, Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal, in the framework of project PARADiSE.

PARADiSE consists of a thorough theoretical, modelling and experimental investigation of plasma decomposition of CO2. The work will be done in close collaboration with several foreign laboratories, that will conduct a series of measurement campaigns tailored to the needs of the project.

By its end the investigation will unveil the mechanisms underlying plasma CO2 dissociation, identify the optimal conditions for a plasma reactor to operate and produce a proof-of-concept prototype, paving the PlasmA RoAD to Solar fuEls (PARADiSE).

The post is offered on a full-time, for 1 year, with a possibility for extension up to 18 months. The start of the position is September/October 2023, but can be flexible. There will be excellent flexibility within the post to investigate various aspects of CO2 plasma conversion.

The person should have a PhD in plasma physics, engineering physics, materials engineering, or similar fields. It is desirable that the person has experience in plasma modelling, or a demonstrated aptitude for learning new fields of research. Additionally, a strong track record of high-quality journal publications is an advantage.
