TitlePostdoc for Thermochemical/Phase-change Energy Storage Systems
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerIndian Institute of Technology Delhi
LocationIndia, Delhi, New Delhi
InternationalNo, only national applications will be considered
Closure DateSunday, March 31, 2024
Project Description: Long-range electric vehicles such as electric buses consume 
a significant part of the battery's storage capacity for cabin air-conditioning. 
In extreme 
climates, the requirement of energy for cabin heating increases drastically and 
the performance of the battery also deteriorates. As a result, the overall range 
of the vehicle is 
reduced and the battery needs frequent charging. To overcome this limitation, we 
are developing a thermochemical heat pump with energy storage for high-
efficiency cabin heating 
and decoupling the onboard battery from the vehicle's HVAC system. The project 
will involve thermodynamic simulations, screening of materials, modeling 
detailed heat and mass 
transfer processes, and designing, fabricating, and experimentally evaluating 
the performance of a lab-scale prototype. 
Candidate Qualifications:  The candidate must have a Ph.D. in mechanical 
engineering completed within the last two years or completed their defense and 
submitted the final PhD 
thesis. The candidate must have an excellent academic record (CGPA greater than 
8.5/10) at all levels of education. Preference will be given to candidates with 
prior experience 
in HVAC and refrigeration, and thermal systems/heat transfer engineering. It is 
essential that the candidate demonstrates a good understanding of the design 
process for 
thermofluid systems (heat exchangers, components, and systems) using software 
such as MATLAB/COMSOL/ANSYS/FLUENT and is familiar with writing their own codes 
for solving 
numerical problems in thermofluids engineering. It is desirable that the 
candidate has some prior experience or exposure to fabrication, selection and 
installation, and operation of laboratory equipment typically used in thermal 
engineering labs (chillers, heaters, fluid flow loops (air and water), 
instrumentation for 
temperature, pressure, and flow rate, etc.). The candidate must have excellent 
written and verbal communication skills demonstrated through publications in 
reputed journals.
