Closing the material loops of mineral wool at the end of its lifecycle by introducing novel technology and value chain to CDW sorting, analysis, pre-treatment, processing, novel products development, market introduction and commercialization is the main goal of the European H2020 project Wool2Loop (mineral wool waste back to loop with advanced sorting, pre-treatment and alkali activation). We seek a postdoc as a part of Wool2Loop the main aim of this postdoc project is to investigate the long term performance and durability of alkali-activated mineral wool materials. In the research program, fundamental understanding of the degradation mechanisms and the microstructure development of alkali-activated mineral wools under different exposure conditions is needed. Experiments on decay mechanism and long-term performance of alkali-activated mineral wools will be carried out. This research will close collaborate with other partners with Wool2Loop.
We are looking for a motivated colleague with a professional academic and independent working attitude. The candidate is expected to have a doctorate in Civil Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering or Chemical Engineering. You are experienced in experimental research on construction materials; preferably on alkali activated materials.
- You are fluent in English (written and spoken) and have good communication skills
- You have demonstrable experience with independent scientific writing and have good social skills
- You are result oriented and you are a creative and structured thinker
