The NSERC chair on industrial energy efficiency has been established in summer 2014 at Université de Sherbrooke, in the mechanical engineering department. The research program is financially supported by NSERC, Hydro-Québec, CanmetENERGY and Rio Tinto Alcan. The main objective is to improve the energy efficiency of three components widely encoutered in refrigeration systems: single- and two-phase supersonic ejectors, heat exchangers using ice slurries and plate/porous regenerators used in magnetic refrigeration. The overall budget is around 2.4 millions CAD for the period 2014-19.

Open Positions

We are always looking for motivated candidates both at the Master or PhD levels. High financial supports and pleasant working conditions are offered. If you want to work in the field of energy efficiency, or more generally in research projects dealing with fluid mechanics and heat transfer, please contact Sébastien Poncet at any time. Send a detailed CV and your last academic transcript. There are also opportunities for visiting students and/or internships.
