Our people are our most valuable resource and everyone has a role to play in shaping the future of our university, developing our learners, and transforming the businesses we work with. Learn more about Cranfield and our unique impact here: Working life at Cranfield.

Our shared, stated values help to define who we are and underpin everything we do: Ambition; Impact; Respect; and Community. To find out more please visit our website:

Within our Wastewater team, you will work closely with colleagues to further understand the fate and transport of micropollutants in wastewater treatments.

You will have a PhD (obtained or near completion) in physical, biological and or chemical sciences or engineering. You will have expertise in wastewater treatment technologies and in validation of analytical protocols involving chromatography and mass spectrometry.

If you have ambition to build your own reputation through research, an impressive publication record and a great student teaching approach, then we would like to hear from you.

At Cranfield we value Diversity and Inclusion, and aim to create and maintain a culture in which everyone can work and study together harmoniously with dignity and respect and realise their full potential.  To further demonstrate our commitment to progressing gender diversity in STEM, we are members of WES & Working Families, and sponsors of International Women in Engineering Day.

Our equal opportunities and diversity monitoring has shown that that women and minority ethnic groups are currently underrepresented within the university and so we actively encourage applications from eligible candidates from these groups.

We actively consider flexible working options such as part-time, compressed or flexible hours and/or an element of homeworking, and commit to exploring the possibilities for each role.  To find out more, please visit
