The CRECK Modeling Lab is looking for candidates for a PhD position for a research project in collaboration with Pietro Fiorentini S.p.a. (http://www.fiorentini.com) on the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) analysis of bubble column bioreactors equipped with mechanical agitators aimed at optimizing the production of bio-methane from renewable hydrogen.
The PhD grant lasts 3 years and provides a monthly scholarship of about € 1400.
