Job Description

Looking for candidates with experience in the field of water purification with nanotechnology. The main objective of the project(s) will be on developing an optimized design for active nanomaterials based on magnetite-loaded graphene and the associated delivery medium such as membranes, pellets, foams, etc. for highly efficient As removal in the groundwater. The applicant will explore the efficient adsorbents for As removal, investigate the reaction mechanisms, and characterize their physicochemical properties, stability, reactivity, etc. In addition, the candidate is expected to help implement setting up a pilot-plant to demonstrate the technology.

  • Characterization of surface and structure of nanomaterials (XPS, FT-IR, XRD, TEM, etc.): in
    particular, an advanced experienced AFM and Raman
  • Analyses of solution/suspensions (e.g., AFS (atomic fluorescence spectrometer), mass spectroscopy,
