We primarily welcome applicants with past postdoctoral experience to be hired at scientist level; however, younger applicants with an interesting profile may also be considered for hiring at post-doctoral level. We are seeking a curious, creative, critical individual committed to scientific excellence and high ethical standard. The candidate has a background in physics, mechanical or civil engineering, or related fields, and blends theoretical knowledge, programming skills and physical intuition. The ideal candidate has worked in fields such as porous media science, fluid and continuum mechanics (including interfacial processes), thermodynamics, scientific computing, building physics, energy storage and conversion, physics and chemistry of membranes. She/he has acquired experience in dealing with complex physicochemical processes and in modeling phenomena over multiple scales (e.g. molecular scales, pore scale, continuum scale, building and regional scales). Experience in developing, acquiring and managing research projects is also desirable for candidates to be hired at scientist level. Possible research areas of interest include (but are not limited to): multiscale and multiphysics modeling of complex processes (including coupled heat and mass transfer, reactive transport, ad-/desorption); supermaterials (materials with enhanced physicochemical properties, including nano-porous materials and nanostructures); active building envelopes with tunable properties; energy production, conversion and storage; novel computational models for building physics; membrane and bioreactors; computational fluid dynamics.
