Additional comments

The Laboratory of Chemical and Environmental Engineering (LEQUIA) is a research group of the University of Girona (UdG) devoted to the development of eco-innovative environmental solutions. Founded in 1993, LEQUIA is well-known for its experience within the water field. We have a multidisciplinary team of 37 people, with chemists, biologists, biotechnologists, environmental scientists, engineers, computer scientists and political scientists. Current research lines are: i) innovative bio-processes for treatment, resource recovery and synthesis of compounds, ii) advanced physical-chemical processes for treatment and/or reuse of liquid and gaseous streams, and iii) planning, control and evaluation of complex environmental systems.

Offer Requirements



  • To hold a PhD in industrial, chemical, environmental engineering or equivalent degrees.
  • To have specialised knowledge in modelling and AI techniques, preferable applied in the urban water cycle and, concretely, in water treatment processes (e.g. wastewater treatment, water reclamation, drinking water treatment).
  • To have the ability to use softwares for statistics (e.g. Matlab) and programming languages (e.g. Phyton).
