Expected start date and duration of employment
This is a 1-year position from October 1st or as soon possible.

Job description
You will become part of a dedicated project team, operating and developing our research facilities, with special emphasis on the newly installed eSMR (electrified steam methane reformer) plant for production of renewable methanol from biogas and electricity.

More specifically, you will be involved in daily operation of our pilot plant, including modification of utilities and equipment, operation of the plant, preparing and executing experiments as well as analyzing experimental data from the plant.

Further, you will be involved in preparation of the next project stage, establishment of a methanol synthesis loop. You may also take part in executing and reporting experimental research activities on some of our other Power-to-X pilot plants.

The position relates to projects funded by the Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program, conducted in close collaboration with Haldor Topsoe A/S and other industrial partners.

Your profile
Applicants should hold a Master’s Degree in chemical engineering, process engineering or similar.

Further, we expect the following qualifications:

  • Solid knowledge within chemical processes and process technology
  • Good skills in analysis, interpretation and communication of experimental results
