Associate Professor in Material Design By Electrospinning for Water Technologies

Technical University of Denmark, Denmark is inviting applicants to apply for a professor position in water resources. Candidates are welcome before July 03, 2019.

The Water Technology Section is one of the five sections comprising the Department: Land, Air & Water Resources, Residual Resource Engineering, Urban Water Systems, Environmental Fate and Effect of Chemicals, and Water Technology. The Water Technology Section focuses on processes and technology for treating a range of water types by biological, chemical, physical and electrochemical approaches. The scales are ranging from molecular, over laboratory and pilot scale to full-scale and include experimentation, monitoring and modelling.

Electrospinning offers a powerful and effective strategy for designing and manufacturing metamaterials with rich chemical versatility, high throughput, low production costs and tailored physical properties, including large surface-to-volume ratios, high open porosity and architectural biomimicry. In particular, incorporating nanoscale additives such as enzyme, catalysts, adsorbents and biomolecules into electrospun nanofibers has become one of the most attention-getting research topics and industrial applications in the fields of environmental engineering, biotechnology and energy. The purpose of the position is to open up a new Electrospinning competence filed in the Water Technology Section. The Associate Professor must have substantial experience in material design by electrospinning in the fields of water and energy technologies and will lead the efforts in expanding the electrospinning competence into new research fields and securing external funding.

Associate Professor will be responsible to build up the electrospinning facilities, supervise a research group with master/PhD students and young researchers, apply external research funding and build strong collaboration across DTU departments as well as with other international partners in both academic institutions and industry. Specifically we expect you to: In the assessment of the candidates, consideration will be given to
