This studentship will provide a bursary of £17,000. (tax free) plus fees* for one year.
This project will look at a highly advanced adsorption and flotation process that will enable delivery of high quality drinking water. Applicants should have a first or upper second class UK honours degree or equivalent in a related discipline, such as Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Environmental Engineering/Science or Chemical Engineering. The ideal candidate would have some understanding of water treatment and the current treatment challenges in the UK for drinking water purification (eg pesticides). The candidate should be self-motivated, have good communication skills for regular interaction with other stakeholders, with a strong interest for industrial research.
The project will be based at Cranfield in our laboratory facilities but you will be required to collect water from live drinking water treatment work sites, so the ability to drive would be an advantage. We will liaise regularly with the client in face-to-face meetings.
Fully funded by an Industrial sponsor. Fees only paid at the home/EU rate.
