NOWELTIES: Joint PhD Laboratory for New Materials and Inventive Water Treatment Technologies is inviting applications for 14 post-graduate researchers (Early Stage Researchers – ESR).   The project is funded by Marie Sklodowska Curie Action European Joint Doctorate (EJD) project (programme Innovative Training Networks (ITN) of Horizon 2020). Candidates should have a strong interest in (waste) water treatment and interdisciplinary research including bioprocesses for wastewater treatment, nanotechnology, and fate of organic and inorganic contaminants in engineered treatment systems.

Research areas:
  • Chemistry
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Hydrogeological Engineering
  • Materials Engineering
  • Biotechnology
  • Physics

Duration: 3 years

Starting date: September 1st, 2019


  • Candidates from all over the world may apply
  • Mobility: at the time of the recruitment, the researcher must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.), in the country of the chosen host institution (recruiting beneficiary) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the date of the recruitment.
  • Research category of Early Stage Researcher (ESR): researchers who, at the time of the recruitment, have not yet been awarded a doctorate degree and are in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers, including the research training period that would entitle them to a doctorate.

How to apply

Applicants to send full application to indicating ref. “NOWELTIES” in the subject of the email consisting of:

  • CV (Europass format recommended; Please specify your residence/work place in the last 3 years).
  • University transcripts (grades)
  • A statement letter addressing his/her research interests in relationship to the selected individual research project.
  • Applicants should indicate two individual research projects in order of preference (1st and 2nd choice)
  • 2 recommendation letters
