Master’s Thesis position with option to PhD position on waste heat-driven adsorption/desorption compressor process

We are looking for talent candidate for a master’s thesis position for developing and analyzing a new type of waste heat driven adsorption/desorption compressor process. More specifically, the objective of this work is to maximize the heat transfer properties of the adsorption/desorption material. Work will be a combination of experimental and modeling work. There is also option (desired) to continue to Doctoral studies on this same topic. The work will be carried out at the Energy Conversion research group at Department of Mechanical Engineering.

To be able to carry out the work successfully, you need to have good skills in thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer. Competences on numerical modeling and possibly in CFD are also needed. Finnish language skills are needed since the project is done in close collaboration with Finnish companies and actors. Funding comes from the Business Finland and industrial consortium.
