This PhD fellowship is available at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and its main objective is set to investigate nanoparticles and organic micropollutants during soil passage (riverbank filtration). The high number of pharmaceuticals and the wide variety of biodegradation and speciation processes characteristic to these compounds require understanding how these compounds behave during natural water treatment such as riverbank filtration.
The successful candidate has training and interest in one or more of the following area: water and wastewater treatment, groundwater remediation, groundwater modeling.
-The candidate will have a high motivation for research and solid written and oral communication skills.
-The applicants will enjoy working in and contributing to an international and cross-disciplinary research team.
-English is the operational language of the department.
-At the date of appointment, candidates must have obtained a M.Sc. in Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Environmental
Science, Chemistry or related discipline, evidence of research
Application deadline is 1 September 2012.
