Junior Scientist Innovator
CLS Services is a leading professional recruitment agency, specialised in the recruitment and career coaching of people with a background in chemistry & life sciences. For our client, TNO Sustainable Process & Energy Systems, we are searching for a Junior Scientist Innovator.
The energy sector and the (chemical) industry are in a transition towards the use of new feedstock, the use of renewable energy, process and energy efficiency, introduction of circularity and, of course, carbon capture and re-use. The group Sustainable Process & Energy Systems works on these transitional topics.
Our core technical expertise is Gas- Treatment and Conversion, Separation technologies, Bio-based Building Block synthesis and Energy Conversion & Storage. We work for- and with (renewable) energy and chemistry companies and in a network of international knowledge partners.
Some typical projects/programs we are working on:
• Hydrogen as a carbon-free fuel and feedstock: www.sintef.no/projectweb/elegancy/
• Carbon capture and carbon (re)use technology development and piloting: www.alignccus.eu
• New energy storage solutions (heat and electricity) in the build environment www.scores-project.eu
• Electrification of the industry: www.voltachem.com
• Biomass valorization: biogas as a fuel and feedstock, biomass conversion to aromatics: www.biorizon.eu
With an increasing work stock, we are looking for an engineer to extend the team that is mainly working on carbon capture and utilization and other gas processing technologies. Together with TNO clients and partners you will discuss about the issues that need to be investigated and develop ideas to solve those issues as part of the projects. The work can range from modelling, designing experimental setups for lab testing, process measurement data and perform techo-economical evaluations.
Your task will be to work out ideas to solutions by making models, design experimental setups, coordinate the experimental work with our lab staff, analyse results and take care of the follow up and reporting. You will be in the core of the project team and report to the project manager and senior scientist.
Some of our projects are with (inter)-national consortia and we expect you to actively participate in meetings, presenting results and to represent the work of TNO in those projects. Furthermore, you will support the acquisition of new projects by participating in writing project proposals and support the business development from the technical side.
Who we're looking for
We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate (MSc. or PhD) with a background in process of mechanical engineering. You have experience with CO2 utilisation routes, techno-ecoomical evaluations and experience with modeling in ASPEN and Matlab. As a person you are pro active and you are able to interact with project management and business support as well as with the team in the lab and with clients. You are organized, structured and comfortable with presenting the work at meetings and events.
