Innovative treatment techniques for PFASs in stormwater, groundwater, wastewater and landfill leachates
Description:
This PhD position is one out of 15 positions offered within the ITN PERFORCE3, which is a Europe-wide multi-partner doctoral training programme in the field of PFASs.

The specific objectives of this PhD position are to 1) evaluate innovative treatment techniques for the decomposition and removal of PFASs in stormwater, groundwater, wastewater and landfill leachate, (2) compare the novel treatment techniques with currently applied treatment techniques, and 3) apply the developed treatment technique for the removal of PFASs at waste water treatment plants and landfills.

In addition to short visits to partners and beneficiaries of the consortium, the position includes secondments at GE Healthcare in Uppsala, Sweden, and Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Qualifications:
The successful applicant must

* possess a MSc degree or civil engineering exam in environmental chemistry, analytical chemistry, environmental sciences, environmental engineering or a related field
* have excellent English language and communication skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing)
* have high motivation to pursue a PhD, independence and ability to collaborate and engage in a training network
Experience of analytical laboratory work with organic micropollutants (e.g. PFASs) using advanced mass spectrometry are valuable merits.

Please note that strict eligibility criteria apply to this position as Marie Skodowska-Curie Actions encourage researcher mobility.

* At the time of appointment, applicants must be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers. Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when the applicant obtained the first degree entitling him/her to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in Sweden.
* At the time of appointment, applicants must not hold a doctoral degree or equivalent.
* Applicants can be of any nationality. However, applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Sweden for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the appointment. Short stays, such as holidays are not taken into account.

Applications are welcome from citizens of any nationality (subject to eligibility criteria above and relevant immigration formalities). Recruitment within the ITN PERFORCE3 aims to fulfil the equal opportunity objectives of the Marie Curie programme and hence applications are welcomed from applicants regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic origin, and from individuals wishing to resume research careers after a break.
