We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a team with Dr Elizabeth Heidrich, Dr Toby Wood, Dr Richard Law and Dr Chris O'Malley on the EPSRC-funded project "METzero - Bringing the water sector towards Net-Zero using Microbial Electrochemical Technologies (METs)", within the School of Engineering
We are looking for an enthusiastic and skilled technician to join in a new project to conduct rigorous experiments on pilot scale microbial electrolysis cells on site at a wastewater treatment plant, with supporting research also carried out in our laboratories.
The aim of the project is to conduct research into the operation and design on these units in order to optimise their performance for wastewater treatment and energy recovery. We are extremely keen to hear from people with a can-do attitude, who are able to adapt and offer creative support and ideas to this new research project.
You will ideally have good wet laboratory skills. Being familiar with wastewater analysis or running biological reactors would be excellent. You should be able to work in an organised, systematic and safe way both on site and in a laboratory. As much work will be carried out on site and not at the university, a driving licence is essential.
You will evidence your knowledge and practice of Health & Safety legislation. You should have evidence of good team working skills, as well as being able to work independently.
You should hold a Bachelor's degree or equivalent level qualification engineering or a related subjects. Alternatively, candidates may possess significant vocational experience, demonstrating their development through progressively more demanding, relevant roles.
The role will be full time for 2 years, with the possibility of extending
