We are looking for a potential candidate to work on a research excellence project on the application of innovative membrane-based processes as an alternative to traditional reverse osmosis (RO) for seawater desalination and brine treatment. The goal is to achieve with these a minimal environmental impact, waste generation and energy consumption.
The candidate will work with membrane crystallization (MCr) as well as other desalination techniques such as membrane distillation (MD), osmotically assisted RO (OARO) and low salt rejection RO (LSRRO). The student project will have a theoretical part in which the candidate will review the State-of-the-art for each of the desalination techniques proposed. Afterwards, the candidate will work experimentally with the aforementioned techniques. Parameters such as permeate flux, permeability, transmembrane pressure/temperature gradient, recovery, salt rejection, energy consumption, among others, will be evaluated to compare the selected membrane techniques.


Level of studies:
Master (EQF 7)
Minimun work experience:
1 year experience
Working language(s):
Spanish, Castilian/Español

This job offer requires a valid work permit / visa.

Other job requirements:

Chemical engineering, environmental engineering, or related field.

Knowledge on membrane technology and water treatment is an advantage but not mandatory.
