Applications are invited for a temporary post of a UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 within Chemical & Bioprocess Engineering.

This postdoctoral position will play an important role in a new European Research Council (ERC) funded project, entitled "Analysis of Biofilm-Solid Interactions Underpinning Wastewater Treatment". This is a five year research programme and is based in the UCD School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering. A key aim of this project is to develop new mechanistic insight in the interaction between biofilms and particulate organic matter. We will go significantly beyond current state by using an experimental platform that exploits recent developments in advanced imaging, nanosensors & particle-tracking to probe the fundamentals of these mechanisms.

The post-doc will join a dynamic multi-disciplinary research team located in modern facilities with access to state-of-the art technologies. This is a research focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator. The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.

Salary: 42,033 - 48,427 per annum

Appointment on the above range will be dependent upon qualifications and experience.

Closing date: 17:00hrs (local Irish time) on 21st April 2023.
