Novel Membrane Materials & Systems for Micropollutant Removal
Post Doctoral Researcher
Institut für Funktionelle Grenzflächen
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andrea Iris Schäfer
The IFG-Membrane Technology Department was established in March 2014 and has access to state-of-the art research facilities within the National Research Centre of the Helmholtz Association. As a postdoc you will be responsible to establish a research group within one of the three main interest areas of the department (i) new membrane materials, (ii) membrane retention and fouling mechanisms, and (iii) membrane systems development – applied to water treatment.
This entails the planning and execution of research projects, set-up of required membrane filtration systems and development of relevant analytical methods. In addition, cooperation with internal and external partners, data acquisition and analysis, publication in peer reviewed high impact journals as well as student supervision are part of the responsibilities. Contribution to teaching within the Faculty of Chemical and Process Engineering will be possible. Research funding is sought from national and international funding bodies.
The position is not bound to a particular project and hence provides excellent possibilities for the career development of a researcher.
|Qualifications:||PhD in Chemical/Process/Environmental Engineering/Applied Science or equivalent
You have completed a PhD and demonstrated independent research skills through publication in peer reviewed international journals and have experience with the preparation of research funding proposals. Experience with water treatment processes, membrane technologies, polymer materials, analytical chemistry, micropollutant detection and environmental issues will be a good foundation to the position, although candidates with a stronger foundation in membrane material synthesis or micropollutant specific analytical chemistry skills lacking applications experience will equally be considered.
