OPEN POSITION: Research Associate - Development of Advanced Oxidation Processes for wastewater treatments print email
Thursday, 13 March 2014 18:39

MATGAS, a research centre devoted to CO2 and sustainability (, offers a postdoctoral research contract in the framework of a Catalonian Government funded project. The work will be performed in the context of the project “Development and integration of biological and chemical oxidation treatments for a sustainable reduction of micro-pollutants in waste water (BioQuim_rescue)”, funded by the Technology Innovation Cores (Nuclis) Programme of the Catalonian Government.

The main objective of the BioQuim_rescue project is to study and to develop different chemical processes of advanced oxidation (AOP) in combination with biological treatments that allow the removal of recalcitrant micro-contaminants from water, in a sustainable way both economically and environmentally. The work to be developed at MATGAS in collaboration with the BioQuim_rescue partners involves the evaluation and performance of advanced oxidation processes for removing recalcitrant pollutants from wastewaters together with biological treatments. The postdoctoral candidate will be working in a multidisciplinary research centre, with access to last generation equipments, in an innovative and challenging atmosphere.
