Program Features

Professional Experience

Young Professionals are expected to make significant contributions toward their unit’s work program while they gain a broad overview of the WBG’s policies and work. As part of their two-year program and in line with their units’ business needs and Young Professionals’ interests, they are expected to undertake a business driven “stretch/exposure assignment” where they will gain valuable on-the-job experience.

Field Work

Young Professionals in the Operations stream are likely to join colleagues on field business trips, also called ‘missions,’ in developing countries. These missions present invaluable opportunities for Young Professionals to experience firsthand the challenges of global development, understand key aspects of our work, and get exposed to WBG’s clients and their problems.

Training

A comprehensive development curriculum has been designed to ensure that YPs develop a WBG mindset, quickly gain the foundational learning needed to understand and contribute to the WBG, and build the competencies required at an officer’s level: collaboration, leadership, integrative thinking, and innovation skills, while strengthening a culture of continuous learning.

The curriculum includes a blend of learning activities in a WBG cohort, small groups or individually, ranging from on-boarding activities, e-learning, cohort discussions with WBG leaders, leadership training, to career development conversations, and networking opportunities.

Coaching and Mentoring

YP Buddy: Before they join, Young Professionals are assigned a YP buddy from the previous year’s group, based on their professional interests and cultural background. YP buddies help new recruits to better settle in the new organization and location, as well as to understand the expectations and challenges of the program.
Technical Buddy: In their hiring units and within the YP’s first week, an experienced colleague is assigned as a “go-to person” to answer technical questions in their fields.
WBG Mentor: In their second year, once they have settled into their jobs, Young Professionals are offered a mentor—a technical senior colleague—with whom they can discuss career options, “stretch/exposure” assignment opportunities, and gain insight into the organizational culture.
Peer-Coaching Groups: At several points during the year, Young Professionals meet in small subsets of their cohort to exchange—in a safe, intimate, and virtual format—some of the challenges they are facing and receive coaching from their peers, sometimes accompanied by an executive coach or an HR professional.
Youth Program Team: The Youth Program Team is dedicated to recruiting and helping integrate Young Professionals into the WBG. It coordinates activities designed to support YPs, including mentoring and guidance, helping formulate career strategies, and others. The Youth Program Team is a one-stop shop for Young Professionals looking for support and guidance.

Compensation and Benefits

Salary: As an entry-level professional in the WBG, Young Professionals are offered an internationally competitive salary, based on their education and professional experience.
Health, Life, Accident, and Other Insurance Programs: Young Professionals and their families (including declared domestic partners) may choose from three comprehensive medical/dental benefit plans. The WBG also provides basic life and accident insurance to all staff at no cost, and staff can elect optional life and accident insurance plans. The WBG provides disability and workers’ compensation coverage to staff at no cost.
Pension Plan: The WBG sponsors a comprehensive pension plan for eligible staff. Upon separation from the WBG, either a lump sum or a pension will become payable to the staff based on eligibility.
Relocation Benefits: These benefits are only applicable to staff who are not residents of the greater Washington-Baltimore metropolitan area at the time of appointment.
Relocation Travel: The World Bank will bear the cost of one-way transportation of staff and immediate dependent family from the staff member’s residence.
Relocation Shipment: You may choose to have the World Bank handle your shipping arrangements or you may elect the Optional Shipment Grant.
Relocation Grant: A one-time grant is included in the first paycheck to cover the cost of relocation.
Mobility Premium: A financial benefit is provided for a fixed period to cover expenses associated with being an expatriate staff member, based on family size and nationality. This benefit is not available for U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents who are based in Washington, DC.
Tax Allowance: U.S. staff receive an additional quarterly payment to cover the federal, state, and local income tax liabilities on their World Bank Group income. Expatriates and U.S. permanent residents do not incur U.S. income tax liability and are thus not eligible for this benefit.
Financial Assistance: The World Bank Group offers several financial assistance programs, including a two-year interest-free settling-in loan to those who relocate upon appointment.

Application Essay for the 2018 Selection Process

“Ending extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting shared prosperity in a sustainable manner are the driving missions for the World Bank Group. While the goals are simple to grasp, the efforts it will take to meet them are not. Just as there are many interconnected and overlapping causes behind extreme poverty, the solutions required are just as complex and unique to each country’s individual circumstances.  The fundamentals, however, remain true: countries must grow their economies inclusively, so that everyone benefits; they must invest in their people; and they must ensure that those who have left poverty do not fall back into it.

Yet, the world today is much different than it was even just a few years ago. The global community is facing challenges that are diverse in nature—economic, humanitarian, environmental—but that share key features. First, they threaten the hard-won development gains of recent decades; and second, they will not be contained within any one country’s borders. Millions of people have been forcibly displaced by conflict and live in ever-more fragile areas; the risks of pandemics can devastate the health of individuals, but also undermine countries’ economies; and the threats of climate change are becoming ever more apparent.

Everyone will be affected. Yet the poorest and most vulnerable will be affected most. To address these challenges, the World Bank Group is working to become a more agile partner in addressing the world’s most pressing problems. It aims to leverage and apply its unique capabilities to provide the innovative financing and creative solutions that support countries in dealing with these challenges at the local, regional, and global levels. As the world works to confront these challenges,

the World Bank Group will continue to play an essential role in supporting global development and working to safeguard the progress toward the 2030 sustainable development agenda.” (Extract from the 2016 WBG Annual Report)

Job description

Postdoctoral researcher: Integrated model guided process optimization of steam cracking furnaces (IMPROOF)

Aim
Evaluate theoretically and experimentally the potential benefit of applying high emissivity coatings, oxy-fuel combustion and 3D reactor designs in steam cracking furnaces.

Justification
Steam cracking is one of the most energy intensive processes in the chemical industry. Although steam cracking technology is considered to be mature, the complexity of the process and the harsh operating conditions allow the implementation of technology developments towards substantial heat transfer enhancement. One of the main objectives of IMPROOF is to increase the energy efficiency of the radiation section of a steam cracking furnace, minimizing exergy losses. A key element to realize this is the use of high emissivity coatings manufactured and studied under real furnace conditions in the project. On the other hand NOx emissions can be reduced by the possible use of oxy-fuel combustion. Finally, the efficiency and selectivity can be improved by applying

Program
Although the benefit of the application of high emissivity coatings is clear they are still rarely applied for steam cracking furnaces. Therefore IMPROOF will assess the results of the application of high emissivity materials on improved refractory materials on TRL5 and TRL6 level. These furnace redesigns of components and process tubes combined with CFD modelling will be a further multiplier for the potential benefit of IMPROOF. IMPROOF seeks to further demonstrate that also existing furnaces can be retrofitted to increase their performance. At the same IMPROOF will result in optimized resource and energy efficiencies, and also less pollutant emissions. A risk is that, as a result of improvements in the radiant section by coating various components with high emissivity products, the amount of heat released to the convective section will be reduced. This will necessitate a re-evaluation of the operation of the convective section which will prompt the evaluation of high emissivity products to improve heat absorption in this area as well.

Nowadays, there is an increased interest towards the development of oxy-fuel combustion, i.e. the process of burning a fuel using pure oxygen instead of air as the primary oxidant. One of the advantages of oxy-fuel combustion is the production of a highly concentrated stream of CO2, ready for capture and storage (CCS). Beside CCS, oxy-fuel combustion has other advantages, such as the possibility to significantly reduce the size of the combustor unit compared to that used in the corresponding air-fired combustion. Another essential question that will be addressed by IMPROOF is if the use of renewable fuels such as bio-gas or bio-oils is actually beneficial to be considered in steam cracking furnaces. Detailed kinetic models and CFD will be used to provide answers to all these questions.

Profile of the candidate

Applicants must possess a PhD in Chemical Engineering or related subject and a TOEFL certificate with a minimum score of 95(iBT) or equivalent. Relevant experience in the area of reactor engineering, kinetics, and/or computational chemistry is strongly recommended. Candidates must have a strong mathematical background and be willing to focus on obtaining quantitative rather than qualitative results.

How to apply

Any additional information can be obtained by contacting. Any application should enclose a C.V., a one page justification of your interest and the e-mail addresses of at least two references.

Job description

Prediction of Turbulent Reactive Flows by means of Numerical Simulations (PRETREF)

Aim
The goal of this PhD is coupling detailed kinetic models for free radical and surface processes with Computational Fluids Dynamics (CFD) accounting properly for turbulence.

Justification
The 20th century has proven to be a fruitful century in modeling chemical reactors using simplified reactor models and simplified kinetic models. Hence, there’s a good reason to believe that many of those systems are actually far from optimal. Indeed, the supercomputer capabilities in the 21th century make that on a computational level new innovations are possible that 5 years ago one could not even dream of. The current state of the art in CFD makes use almost exclusively of traditional Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS). The main limitation of RANS modeling is that RANS variables do not depend on time and only averaged flow fields are obtained of which the accuracy can be debated. It must be clear that an instantaneous and averaged turbulent flow field have not much in common. Also intuitively it seems obvious that certain phenomena can simply not be averaged like ignition, quenching, flow instabilities, acoustic waves and thermoacoustics. Note that implementation of detailed chemistry in CFD is at present almost not done, not even when simple turbulence models are used.

Program
Coupling detailed kinetic models with OpenFOAM accounting properly for turbulence. The approach will be validated using a unique set of newly acquired experimental data on the flow field in well-defined reactor geometries using 2D/3D Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and liquid crystal thermography. Implementation of kinetic models with more than 50 species In OpenFOAM using LES. Therefore a dynamic kinetic model reduction method will be developed for the OpenFoam platform in order to drastically decrease the required CPU time. This will be combinend with the classical tools for obtaining reduced chemistry, i.e.: quasi steady state approximation, rate of production and sensitivity analysis. Evaluate the developed OpenFOAM LES code for low NOx burners, pyrolysis and selected surface reactions.

Profile of the candidate

Applicants must possess a MSc in Chemical Engineering or related subject and a TOEFL certificate with a minimum score of 95(iBT) or equivalent. Relevant experience in the area of reactor engineering, kinetics, and/or computational chemistry is strongly recommended. Candidates must have a strong mathematical background and be willing to focus on obtaining quantitative rather than qualitative results.
