Interdisciplinary PhD Project in the Development of Selective Sorbents for Phosphate Recovery from Polluted Water

A three-year PhD position within environmental science is available at the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy, University of Southern Denmark under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) European Innovative Training Network (ITN) RecaP (Capture, Recycling and Societal Management of Phosphorus in the Environment) within the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission (Agreement No 956454).

Project background
Recovery of phosphate, a limited resource and pollutant, from a complex water matrix is challenging. Phosphate selective sorbents is an emerging technology, where phosphate is captured by high-affinity filter materials, which are subsequently regenerated, and the phosphate recovered for further processing resulting in chemically well-defined fertilizer. The objective of this PhD project is to test and improve the performance of sorbents based on layered double hydroxides (LDH) in a range of phosphate polluted waters and asses their performance both on the laboratory and pilot scale. This will be achieved by combining analytical chemistry with advanced characterization techniques including NMR spectroscopy, EXAFS, and powder X-ray diffraction.

We are looking for a candidate with a strong interest in the application of advanced analytical chemistry to address environmental challenges. The candidate will hold a master in, e.g., chemistry, materials science, environmental science, chemical engineering or geochemistry. The candidate is expected to have documented experience with analytical chemistry, materials characterization and/or materials synthesis. Previous experience with acquisition, interpretation, and modelling of X-ray diffraction, NMR, EXAFS, Mössbauer and/or synchrotron data is considered an asset.

The candidate must be independent and fluent in English, both oral and written, as well as be able to work in an interdisciplinary, international environment. Documented experience with internationalization from e.g. international exchange studies is considered an asset.

Deadline: 31 May 2021.
