The Early Stage Researcher (ESR) will work on the Work Package “Dynamic interfacial tension and surfactant stabilisation during membrane emulsification: how to avoid drop coalescence and membrane wetting”. The objective of his or her PhD project is to contribute towards the understanding, modelling and prediction of membrane emulsification processes by focusing on the interaction of complex liquid systems with the porous membrane used to create the emulsion, and interfacial tension variations due to the growing emulsion droplet being formed at the membrane surface.
The position is available from January (or later if required), 2014. Applications are invited from candidates with a Master degree in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physical Chemistry, Physics or related field and having a strong ability for numerical as well as experimental work.
Please send your application including CV, motivation/covering letter and transcript of academic records to Professor Richard Holdich (R.G.Holdich@Lboro.ac.uk) and use ‘CoWet Application’ as the subject header for the message. The policy of equal opportunities will be followed during the recruitment.
The master title at the time of recruitment should be not older than four years.
At the time of recruitment the researcher should not have resided or carried out his or her main activity in The UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.
