Applications are invited for 15 PhD positions (“Early Stage Researchers”) to be funded by the Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network “INNOVEOX – Training of a new generation of researchers in Innovative Electrochemical Oxidation processes for the removal and analysis of micro-pollutants in water streams” within the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission. INNOVEOX is a consortium of high-profile universities, research institutions and companies located in Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, France and Greece.
InnovEOX wishes to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background. Recruitment targets ESR backgrounds in:
- Chemical Engineering
- Environmental Engineering
- Bio-Science Engineering
- Electrotechnical Engineering
- (Analytical) Chemistry
The applicants need to hold a university degree that qualifies them for doctoral studies at their recruiting organization. Solid written and oral communication skills in English are prerequisites of any successful application (typically IELTS min. 7, TOEFL internet-based min. 90 or similar level as proven by other tests). Every applicant can apply for up to three ESR positions (first, second, third choice).
The 15 PhD positions in the EU Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Project InnovEOX:
ESR1: Secondary oxidation by electrochemically produced sulphate radicals
ESR2: Manipulation of plasma species generation in an AOP
ESR3: Enhancing mass transport in a plasma based AOP via liquid spray reactor design
ESR4: Reactor and process design for industrial implementation of eAOP
ESR5: Catalyst evaluation for enhancing anode selectivity in a photo-electrochemical system
ESR6: Hybrid photoelectrochemical processes
ESR7: Electrochemical modification of catalytic activity for water treatment
ESR8: In-situ production of H2O2 at the cathode surface via catalytic coating
ESR9: Evaluation of sample prep methods for the monitoring of eAOP degradation products
ESR10: Multidimensional LC separations with MS as a generic method to study the degradation of environmentally relevant micropollutants
ESR11: Development of high temperature vacuum GC-EI-MS and of capillary SFC-EI-MS
ESR12: Combination of retentive and spectroscopic data in artificial intelligence based strategies for functional group flagging in AOP products
ESR13: Toxicity assessment of degradation products using zebrafish
ESR14: Combined electrochemical oxidation and biological wastewater treatment
ESR15: Life-cycle assessment and cost analysis of emerging eAOP technologies
Benefits and salary
The successful candidates will receive an attractive salary in accordance with the MSCA regulations for Early Stage Researchers. The exact (net) salary will be confirmed upon appointment and is dependent on local tax regulations and on the country correction factor (to allow for the difference in cost of living in different EU Member States). The salary includes a living allowance, a mobility allowance and a family allowance (if married). The guaranteed PhD funding is for 36 months(i.e. EC funding, additional funding is possible, depending on the local Supervisor, and in accordance with the regular PhD time in the country of origin). In addition to their individual scientific projects, all fellows will benefit from further continuing education, which includes internships and secondments, a variety of training modules as well as transferable skills courses and active participation in workshops and conferences.
Deadline for on-line application: 06-10-2019.
