About the University
Guangdong Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (GTIIT) is a public 
technological institute and non-profit research university in Shantou, Guangdong 
province, China. GTIIT is the first Sino-foreign cooperative university with an 
independent legal personality to introduce high-quality higher education 
resources from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. Technion is a 
prestigious public research university based in Haifa-Israel, well-known for 
research innovations. Since 2004, Technion has celebrated three Nobel Prize 
laureates and is consistently ranked as a top-100 university. The vision of 
GTIIT is to become a world-class international university, conducting cutting-
edge research in science and technology.

The Mechanical Engineering Program (group of Pavlos Dimitriou) is looking for 
 PhD candidates to conduct research projects in alternative fuels (hydrogen, 
ammonia) combustion and energy recovery solutions for power generation and 
marine applications.

Contract duration: 3 + 1 years for PhD.

Project Details
Current global efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions have urged the need for 
essential steps towards independence from fossil fuels. China has pledged to 
achieve a carbon-neutrality by 2060, and in this effort, the students will look 
at alternative solutions for power generation and marine applications. The 
research activities will include alternative fuels such as hydrogen, ammonia, 
biofuels and synthetic fuels combustion to power compression- and spark-ignited 
internal combustion engines. The work will consist of experimental testing on 
brand new engine testbeds and simulation analysis of combustion fundamentals and 
air path systems.
