  • Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

This interdisciplinary project in collaboration with Scottish Water, our industrial partner, aims to provide a safe and reliable technology for the treatment of drinking water as well as for the effective treatment of natural organic matter and other organic substances. To achieve this, light emitting diodes (LEDs) will be combined with a new generation of catalytic materials and photocatalytic oxidation will be applied.

Scientific input and financial support from Scottish Water during the whole duration of the studentship will safeguard the feasibility and effectiveness of the new technology.

The student will be also offered a three-month paid placement in Scottish Water, one of the largest water companies in the UK.

Entry Requirements:
Background in engineering or chemistry or experience in water/wastewater treatment technologies.

Minimum entry qualification - an Honours degree at 2:1 or above (or International equivalent) in a relevant science or engineering discipline, possibly supported by an MSc Degree. Further information on English language requirements for EU/Overseas applicants.
