PhD student Selective electrodialysis for food industry


We are looking for a PhD student who will work on the development of a selective electrodialysis system.
The student should have affinity with (electro)chemistry, process technology, physical chemistry and mathematics. The student is motivated to build a theoretical model, and to perform experimental research to validate the model. Furthermore, the student is interested to investigate potential applications for the technology, and to build a pilot-scale system.
The PhD student should have an interest in applied research, and should have a genuine interest to cooperate with industry, an independent and entrepreneurial attitude, and a drive to be instrumental to the implementation of his/her findings in industry and/or society.


Description:
In many industries, there is an increasing interest to close the water cycle and to re-use (waste)water. Closing the water cycle, however, can result in the accumulation of ions, such as sodium, which limits the possibilities for re-use. In order to increase the potential for water re-use, there is an increasing need for the development of desalination technologies that selectively remove specific ions from solution. Electrodialysis is a matured desalination technology which separates charged ions from solution by using an electrical potential difference in combination with ion selective membranes.
In this PhD project, we aim to develop an overall selective electrodialysis process, not by applying ion-selective membranes, but by tuning the ion-transport by influencing the concentration and (electro)chemical potential difference. To that end, we will first develop a theoretical framework describing multi-ion (and water) transport through ion-exchange membranes. The model will be used to identify optimal process conditions, and based on our findings, we aim to design the electrodialysis cell. Furthermore, we will develop and evaluate a pilot-scale setup to apply this novel process for re-use of water in agriculture and industry.


We ask
For this position we request the candidate should have a master degree in environmental engineering or chemical engineering, or in an equivalent program, and should have interest in electrochemical engineering and mathematically modelling.


We offer
We offer you a temporary position for a period of 1.5 years with extension of 2.5 years after successful evaluation. Gross salary per month € 2266,-. in the first year rising up to € 2897,-. per month in the fourth year.
We not only offer a competitive salary but also good (study) leave and a pension of the ABP Pension Fund.

Investigations in biological systems by using miniaturized electrochemical sensors


The Electrochemical Sensors and Electroanalytical Methods Laboratory at the Institute of Chemistry, University of São Paulo (USP) - Brazil, is seeking to hire one post-doctoral researcher to work on a project entitled “Investigations in biological systems by using miniaturized electrochemical sensors”. The scholarship will be granted by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the research is linked to the Thematic Project “Integrated miniaturized chemical sensors: novel fabrication platforms for biological, health and environmental applications” (Process # 2018/08782-1), whose coordinator is Prof. Mauro Bertotti (http://www.iq.usp.br/lseme/?lang=en).

The selected candidate will perform research on the development of microelectrodes and microelectrodes arrays for further use in biological systems, particularly in the monitoring of neurotransmitters release, as well as in the study of metabolic processes. Experiments will be performed using devices mounted in different configurations, depending on the size of the cells and the desired information about the cellular system. In order to improve the sensitivity and selectively of the fabricated sensors response, strategies based on the modification of the electrode surface will be employed, if necessary. The project will be carried out in collaboration with researchers from the Department of Biochemistry, hence we envisage a multidisciplinary approach with emphasis on excellence and highest scientific standards.
USP is the largest Brazilian public university (90.000 enrolled students) and is highly recognized by its fundamental role in advancing research in the country (currently, USP is responsible for more than 20% of all scientific production in Brazil). USP is made up of several campuses and our laboratory is located in the campus of the city of São Paulo, which is the main port of entry to Brazil. FAPESP is an independent public foundation with the mission to foster research and the scientific and technological development of the State of São Paulo.

Candidates must present academic competitiveness at the international level confirmed by publications in indexed journals in the subjects of interest of the research project. Advanced training in Electroanalytical Chemistry, including the fabrication and use of microelectrodes, will be considered a very important differential. Experience with Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy is highly desirable. Candidates are expected to help to coach/co-supervise undergrad and grad students and lab technicians, when necessary.


Contract Period and Project Start 
The scholarship duration is 24 months and it can be extended for up 2 more years, depending on the evaluation of the work performed during the current period and the research plan for the extended period. The starting date for the successful candidate is flexible, but is expected to be before June 1st, 2019.
