Ph.D Studentship and Research Fellow Opportunities.

Biological Treatment of Industrial Effluents Using Novel Biofilm-Membranes

One Senior Research Fellow position and one full-time Ph.D. scholarship are available to work on a project funded by The Leverhulme Trust at Canterbury Christ Church University. This is an exciting multi-disciplinary project that aims to develop a proof-of-concept, sustainable and environment-friendly process for treating industrial effluents using novel biofilms as membranes. This work will also pioneer a new view of biofilms as potentially useful, biodegradable and renewable materials.
