5 PhD (EID) positions available for EU project TreatREC

TreatREC - Interdisciplinary concepts for municipal wastewater treatment and resource recovery.Tackling future challenges is a Marie Sklodowska Curie Action European Industrial Doctorate (EID) project (programme Innovative Training Networks (ITN) of Horizon 2020). The project is a joint collaboration between academia and industry with a clear aim of producing a group of early stage researchers capable of conducting high quality research, but also able to address industrial and societal needs and implement wastewater-related directives in practice. The five researchers will conduct their scientific projects in an environment that combines industrial excellence in the development, design, construction and management of wastewater treatment systems, with complementary academic excellence in a) hypothesis-driven research involving the improvement/upgrading of state-of-the art technologies and the deepening the understanding of fate and removal of microcontaminants in wastewater treatment systems and in b) applied research involving the development of decision support systems which allow for the encapsulation of knowledge for further use in decision-making processes.

We are looking for 5 post-graduate researchers (Early Stage Researchers - ESR), specialized in Chemistry, Chemical, Environmental, Civil Engineering and similar.

The position is offered for 3 years for the following individual research projects:

  • ESR1. Tackling emerging compounds in WWTP?s
    Host institution: Aquafin NV, Research & Development, Aartselaar, Belgium
  • ESR2. Transformation of microcontaminants in wastewater treatment
    Host institution: Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA), Girona, Spain
  • ESR 3. Optimal configuration of nitrogen and phosphorous recovery schemes within WWTPs
    Host institution: University of Girona, LEQUIA, Girona, Spain
  • ESR 4. The resilience of wastewater treatment to multiple stress conditions
    Host institution: ATKINS, Bristol, UK
  • ESR 5. Assessment of environmental and socio-economical implications of urban wastewater systems upgrading
    Host institution: Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA), Girona, Spain
All hired researchers will compulsory enrol Doctoral Programme in Water Science and technology at the University of Girona, Spain, and undertake mobility in order to
implement the Individual Research Project as well as to participate in a sustained training programme. Follow the link for more information on the Doctoral Programme.
  • Remuneration according to MSCA ITN rules

Eligibility criteria

  • Nationals from any country may apply
  • Mobility: at the time of the recruitment, the researcher must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.), in the country of the chosen host institution (recruiting beneficiary) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the date of the recruitment.
  • Research category of Early Stage Researcher (ESR): researchers who, at the time of the recruitment, have not yet been awarded a doctorate degree and are in the first 4 (full-time equivalent) of their research careers, including the research training period that would entitle them to a doctorate.

General evaluation criteria

  • Educational background relevant for the chosen position (individual research project)
  • For holders of an official university degree from the countries within the European Higher Education Area (EHEA): A minimum of 300 ECTS credits completed in official university studies are required, of which at least 60 must be at a master?s degree level. For holders of a university degree obtained in another country, an equivalent degree that qualifies the holder to begin doctoral studies in the country in which it was issued (a certificated from the University may be required).
  • Previous research experience, relevant to the chosen position.
  • Language skills (English compulsory).
  • Networking and communication skills (to be evaluated in the interview).

How to apply

Applicants should send full application consisting of:
  • A statement letter addressing his/her research interests in relationship with the selected individual research project.
    Applicants may indicate two individual research projects in order of preference (1st and 2nd choice)
  • University transcripts (grades)
  • Curriculum Vitae (Europass format recommended)
  • 2 recommendation letters

to the TreatREC coordinator Dr. Mira Petrovic ( before 15th of January, 2015
