Research Engineer/Project Manager Position at Georgia Tech, USA

One research engineer/project manager position is available starting from February 2013 in the Atomistic Simulation & Energy (A.S.E.) research group at Georgia Tech. The primary function for this position is to lead the construction and testing of two lab scale prototype high temperature liquid metal loops for a concentrated solar application. One liquid metal loop will be tested in a solar simulator, while the second test loop will involve thermochemical reactors designed for water splitting/hydrogen production. The idea (see Fig. 1 on page 2) is to capture highly concentrated sunlight (> 5 MW/m2) at high temperature > 1300°C in the sensible heat of a liquid metal heat transfer fluid (i.e. tin). The sensible heat can be later used for direct power generation or thermochemical fuel production (water splitting) as a new route to clean, renewable and dispatchable utility scale electricity generation.
