SANITAS Vacancies


Marie Curie Fellowship for an ‘Early Stage Researcher’ position at ICRA – to study the biodegradation of micropollutants 

Deadline for application: February 6th 2014

SANITAS – (Marie Curie Initial Training Network) – invites applications for a full-time research position at the Catalan Institute for Water Research, Girona, Spain. The selected researcher is expected to undertake mobility in order to implement an Individual Research Project (IRP) and to participate in a sustained training programme.

Title of the IRP: Biodegradation of micropollutants.

Contract duration: 17 months

Starting date: 1st March 2014 (approx.)

Brief description of the project: The research objective is to investigate biodegradation and removal mechanisms of target micropollutants by different approaches. Despite the uncertainties on the effects of micropollutants into the environment (i.e. pharmaceuticals) and the lack of knowledge regarding their degradation and overall removal, increasingly stringent discharge limits are expected. Mechanisms and operational parameters influencing biodegradation and removal mechanisms of target micropollutants are lacking and need to be optimized.
