NOWELTIES – Joint PhD Laboratory for New Materials and Inventive Water Treatment Technologies. Harnessing resources effectively through innovation is a Marie Sklodowska Curie Action European Joint Doctorate (EJD) project (programme Innovative Training Networks (ITN) of Horizon 2020). Its primary objective is to organize a platform that will provide cutting edge training opportunities for the education of tomorrow`s water treatment experts.
The core activity is the research programme (composed of 14 individual research projects) aimed at development of inventive water treatment technologies (advanced biological treatments, innovative oxidation processes, hybrid systems) that allow catering for the varied treatment demands for a plethora of interconnected streams arising from recycling loops. These technologies will be able to control contamination by organic micropollutants (OMPs) and improve recovery of water across a diversity of scales enabling a smart combination of decentralized and centralised approaches. Besides a holistic training in the field of wastewater treatment dealing with state-of-the-art technologies, experimental techniques and knowledge management methodologies, NOWELTIES will provide a unique training approach to learning complex complementary skills leading to independent and critical thinking which seeks for originality and innovation.
Therefore, we are looking for 14 post-graduate researchers (Early Stage Researchers – ESR), specialized in Chemistry, Chemical, Environmental, Hydrogeological or Materials Engineering, Biotechnology, Physics or similar.
Candidates should have a strong interest in (waste)water treatment and interdisciplinary research including bioprocesses for wastewater treatment, nanotechnology, and fate of organic and inorganic contaminants in engineered treatment systems.
The position is offered for 3 years.
