A PhD funded by the MSC European training network ERICA (GA n° 764691) is available at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL).

The purpose of the PhD (Project 10) is the Modelling of hydrate microstructure at the particle size / agglomerate level (microns). The objective is to enhance the state-of-the-art micro-scale model of hydrates, µIC, to enable modelling of drying shrinkage in the µIC platform using calculations of local stress. Introductions include: (i) information on hydrate properties at a resolution below particle size 1; (ii) the reversible and irreversible changes in sub-particle size properties resultant from sorption cycles.
