Check out Omar’s video on how he secured his internship and please read the job advert.

Why work for us?

In a small company, you learn a great deal and directly see the impact of your work.

Lucas, for example,  joined us in summer 2019 as a summer student. He did excellent research and studied hydrodynamics of gas-liquid flows and studied heat transfer. We managed to publish his work in the top peer-reviewed journal – the Chemical Engineering Journal. Moreover, Lucas did more – he participated in the development of our SABRe system.

As a result of a few months of work he learned a lot and got 1 patent application in his name and 1 top publication.

Get in touch if you want to participate.
