We have an exciting opportunity for a Research Associate to join our world leading drinking water distribution research group, within the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering.  We are looking for someone with a passion for research into drinking water quality, who has and wants to apply their skills to develop the next generation of modelling tools to help protect and maintain the supply of safe drinking water. The role will focus on developing water distribution network modelling approaches to describe and quantify the microbial risks associated with the interaction of disinfection residuals and biofilms.

You will work in a well-connected team with a world-leading reputation. The university hosts the UK's largest urban water research grouping, bringing together people with different expertise to advance engineering and scientific knowledge across all aspects of water engineering. You will use your research skills to become an essential member of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and UK Water Industry Research (UKWIR) funded ‘To Chlorinate, or Not To Chlorinate’ (www.tochlorinate.ac.uk) project team, working with other researchers within the University of Sheffield, other universities and industry partners.

We are looking for a responsible, creative and innovative engineer/mathematician/computer scientist to join our focused and driven research team. The position will entail a range of model development, validation, verification and application. The role will include planning the modelling research, model development, analysing and interpreting results, and presenting findings. This role provides an exciting opportunity to develop your skills in multidisciplinary research which integrates both engineering, microbiology and modelling.

Educated to PhD level within the subject area of water systems modelling, ideally with water quality expertise, you will bring essential specialist knowledge and expertise to model development and integration, within a complex multidisciplinary research team. The aim of this research is to deliver knowledge and tools to determine pathogen risks from biofilms drinking water distribution systems, and inform disinfection residual strategies. If you are passionate about a career in water quality research, then we would love to hear from you.
