This is an exciting opportunity for a Research Fellow in Sustainability Assessment of Novel Textile Recycling Techniques to join the School of Applied Sciences at University of Huddersfield.

Joining our research group, you will work on the recently funded and interdisciplinary EPSRC project on the development of a textile waste refinery to produce recycled plastic, cellulose and dyes.

Your main task will be to perform the sustainability assessment (economic, environmental, and social) of the newly proposed solution. You will need to develop a scaled-up model of the proposed integrated waste refining process, perform a techno-economic assessment to assess its viability, and implement an environmental and social Life Cycle Assessment. Based on the findings, you will have to develop a strategic plan for the uptake and optimal utilisation of the proposed solutions, aiming to empower the commercialisation and wide implementation of an integrated textile waste refining strategy.

You will hold a Doctoral qualification in Chemical Engineering or a relevant discipline and a track record of research outputs around environmental Life Cycle Assessment and Technoeconomic Assessment of novel processes. You should be also familiar with social Life Cycle Assessment.
