Role Description

We are seeking an ambitious and accomplished researcher to contribute towards our growing portfolio of work in Point-of-Use water treatment. Here at Cranfield, we offer you the opportunity and resources to develop your career in an exclusively postgraduate university that is a global leader for education and transformational research in technology and management.

Joining our expanding water treatment team and working in a cross-disciplinary research environment, you will be responsible for delivering research and expert advice as part of the development of a novel Point-of-Use treatment technology. You will also be closely involved in the expansion of Cranfield’s water treatment facilities and research capacities as part of the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC).

The post offers a superb opportunity for a scientist or technologist in this rapidly growing area to broaden and deepen their skills by working across a range of disciplines and sectors. Your contributions will influence thinking, practice, and policy amongst a variety of stakeholder groups with opportunities to contribute to our ongoing work in both high and low income settings.

You will have a PhD (obtained or close to completion) in an appropriate subject such as biological, chemical, or environmental science or engineering. You will have extensive research experience in analysis or development of novel drinking water treatment technologies, laboratory work and experimental design; preferably combined with expertise in the design and testing of pilot scale treatment technologies. A developing portfolio of outputs in the form of high quality journal papers, conference presentations, and outreach activities will be expected. You will be a confident and articulate communicator with a broad understanding of and interest in science and technology.

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

For an informal discussion, please contact Professor Peter Jarvis,  Professor of Water Science & Technology on (T); +44 (0)1234 758318 or (E); p.jarvis@cranfield.ac.uk
