About the Project
A PhD project at the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Water Infrastructure and Resilience (WIRe)
This exciting fully funded PhD, with an enhanced stipend of £19,000 per annum, will deliver innovative science to meet future water resource challenges, ensuring that we can continue to produce high quality drinking water. Focusing on water treatment, this research project will help develop strategies that will increase the resilience of drinking water supplies in the UK against a back-drop of population growth and climate change impacts.
Students will benefit from being part of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Water Infrastructure and Resilience (WIRe), a world leading collaboration between three UK universities. The WIRe programme includes a bespoke training programme in technical and personal skills development, and provides opportunities for overseas travel and access to world leading experimental facilities (PhDs under this scheme are for a duration of four years full time). More details of the CDT WIRe.
We are an inclusive and diverse doctoral centre and welcome applications from all highly motivated individuals, regardless of background, identity or disability.
Applicants should have a minimum equivalent to a UK upper second class degree (2.1) and preferably an MSc in a relevant subject such as chemistry or chemical engineering. The ideal candidate should have some understanding of water chemistry and water treatment. The candidate should be self-motivated, have good communication skills for regular interaction with other stakeholders, with an interest in applied scientific research. Prior experience in the water sector would be advantageous but is not essential.
