We are seeking candidates to join our research efforts on the use of ionic liquids to tackle pervasive environmental problems and create a more sustainable manufacturing future. This position will focus on one of the biggest challenges facing society – the provision of clean water for our growing population. Our research efforts have established ionic liquids as viable media for processing waste materials in a circular economy. Here we seek the use of immobilised ionic liquids to absorb heavy metal contaminants from waste water streams. We seek both batch and continuous process options using immobilised hydrophobic ionic liquids. The Research Associate in Ionic Liquids for Wastewater Treatment will synthesise novel hydrophobic ionic liquids, immobilise them on solid inorganic supports and build a continuous apparatus for trace element removal from contaminated water streams.
Duties and responsibilities
You will take initiative in the design of your research programme, and direct a team of researchers from the PhD and Masters level in the pursuit of a viable process option. You will be able to synthesise ionic liquids, analyse their immobilised state on inorganic supports and perform trace element analysis on liquid streams to monitor extraction success.
*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £36,691 - £39,888 per annum.
The post is available from the 1st of February 2022 and is fixed for 24 months. The post is based in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London (South Kensington Campus).
