Research Fellow in Plasma-Catalysis Control of Dioxins

University of Leeds School of Chemical and Process Engineering

United Kingdom

Research Fellow in Plasma-Catalysis Control of Dioxins

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in advanced analytical skills for the determination of organic micropollutants coupled with experimental engineering techniques in high temperature waste processing. Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research intensive Universities?

This EPSRC funded project involves the development and operation of a non-thermal plasma-catalyst reactor to investigate the control of dioxins and furans from flue gases simulating the conditions of a municipal solid waste incinerator. The majority of the work involves the detailed chemical analysis of dioxins and furans using (i) advanced solvent extraction, (ii) liquid chromatography fractionation and (iii) triple quadrupole GC-MS-MS.

Holding a PhD (or close to completion) in analytical chemistry, applied chemistry, chemical engineering or related area, you will have a strong background in catalyst development and catalyst characterisation techniques.
