Description of the offer :

A PhD fellowship on experimental characterization and numerical modeling of magnetocaloric materials is now available at the Department of Energy Conversion and Storage, Technical University of Denmark. This PhD position at DTU Energy will constitute the major part of a unique research project where we want to perform state-of-the-art in-situ experimental measurements of the most advanced magnetocaloric materials available and compare these to state-of-the-art numerical modelling tools also developed in the project. Currently, there is a significant discrepancy between measured properties and predictions by fundamental models; the measured properties are seen to be significantly weakened compared to those predicted by basic theory.

In the project, advanced experiments available at DTU and at least two international partners (Imperial College London and Ames Laboratory, USA) will be conducted and subsequently compared with a state-of-the-art numerical modelling tool that embraces all the ongoing physics in these materials under dynamic conditions.
