Industrial PhD in Advanced modelling of hygro-thermal transport phenomena in building envelopes

Chalmers University of Technology

Délka trvání: 4 roky
Pozice: PhD student
Země: Gothenburg, Sweden
Platnost do: 31.12.2016

The PhD candidate will work closely with the research team in developing the simulation tool for hygro-thermal transport phenomena in building envelopes. The main responsibility for the candidate will be to allow the simulation tool to account for moisture transfer mechanisms that will have an impact on the hygrothermal performance of the building enclosure.

The candidate will develop benchmarks based on real case problems that will be validated against field and laboratory measurements and serve as a guiding feature for future users of the simulation tool.

The employment is composed of a maximum full-time four-year doctoral programme and a maximum one year of work / department duties, including teaching. The employment is thus limited to a total of five years. The employment is tied to successful progress of doctoral studies, evaluated after one and three years.
