The National Institute of Advanced Analytical Sciences and Technologies (INCTAA) is offering a post-doctoral fellowship in the research line related to advanced techniques for water and wastewater treatment. More specifically the application of advanced oxidation processes, adsorption processes, and membranes in the removal of compounds of emerging concern from aqueous samples. The project will be conducted at the School of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Urban Planning of the University of Campinas (Brazil) under the supervision of Prof. Ph.D. José Roberto Guimarães. It aims the combination of several advanced treatment processes to produce reuse water, at bench level, and in a pilot station, using compounds of emerging concern as model molecules.

The candidates must have recently completed their Ph.D. in Chemistry or related areas and have proven experience in advanced techniques applied to water treatment, reactor assembly, and liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). The candidate must have good written and oral communication in English. The candidate must have recent publications in specialized journals of quality and high impact. The selected candidate must have immediate availability to reside in Campinas.

How to Apply

The following documents should be attached to the e-mail:

1) Curriculum vitae containing academic training, publications, and information about the scientific experience that fit the project (maximum of 4 pages);
2) Letter from the candidate justifying the interest in the vacancy (maximum of 200 words);
3) Two letters of recommendation.

This opportunity is open to candidates of any nationalities. The selected candidate will receive a Post-Doctoral fellowship from the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) in the amount of R$ 7,373.10 monthly and a research contingency fund, equivalent to 15% of the annual value of the fellowship which should be spent in items directly related to the research activity.
