Job description

The Particle and Interfacial Technology Group is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join our fast-growing team. Our group is focused on physico-chemical water treatment, with a particular interest in membrane technologies. We focus on three main pillars: industrial applications, applications for third world countries and fundamental membrane research. For the first pillar, we are looking for a post-doc candidate to coordinate the IMPROVED-project, an Interreg project focused on improved ultrapure water treatment for the chemical process industry. By building three mobile research-units, the link between ultrapure process water quality and phenomena such as corrosion is investigated, as a function of the types of water treatment processes, and the potential addition of conditioning chemicals. Specific focus is on the fate of organic matter, as well as (organic) conditioning chemicals during boiler conditions. The building of the water treatment units is under way and on-site testing will start soon.

Profile of the candidate

  • We are looking for an enthusiastic, team-oriented and highly motivated scientist with the following profile:
  • A PhD in the field related to the above mentioned topic: (physico-chemical) water treatment, membrane applications, industrial applications
  • Experience in (industrial) water treatment is essential
  • Experience in working with industrial partners is a plus – Being fluent in English is a must, knowledge of Dutch is a plus
