Mitigation of CO2 emissions by hydrogen reduction and electricity-based melting processes are two main ways globally to improve sustainability of metal production chains. To obtain these goals, new information is needed for development of reduction and melting processes.
Process Metallurgy Research Unit open following doctoral researcher position:
Doctoral researcher, process metallurgy
The Process Metallurgy Research Unit of the University of Oulu's Faculty of Technology is looking for a doctoral researcherto study burners used in the steel industry using process and spectroscopy data. The research includes both the investigation of current combustion gases and the gradual transition towards a hydrogen-based combustion process. It would be good for the applicant to have an educational background in process metallurgy, physics, or chemistry. Experience with statistical methods and especially statistical analysis of time series data is considered an advantage.
Process Metallurgy Unit has very close co-operation with metallurgical industry as well as research institutes and universities in Finland and Europe as form of joint projects and researcher exchange. The improvements in material and energy efficiencies of metallurgical processes are key topics aiming towards minimized specific emissions. More information on the activities of the unit are available at
Welcome to develop the most sustainable metal production processes in one of the world’s top research groups in this field!
Position for a doctoral student is aiming to as soon as possible for example starting at 01.11.2022.
The deadline for applications is 15.10.2022.
