DTU Denmark Fully Funded PhD Engineering Fellowships for Postgraduate Doctoral Students

Fully Funded PhD Fellowship at the Department of Environmental Engineering

Course(s) Offered: Science, Engineering
Course Level: PhD fellowship
Provider: Denmark Technical University
Country to Study in: Denmark

Scholarship Description
This PhD fellowship is available at the Department of Environmental Engineering, and its main objective is set to Modelling the Fate and Optimizing the Removal of Selected Xenobiotic Organic Micro-Pollutants from Point and Network Water Sources. The selection and development of, for instance, antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the environment is one of the greatest concerns with regard to the use of antimicrobials – a potential threat to public health.

The outcome of this project contributes:
(i) to improve the assessment of the expected environmental impact,
(ii) assist the regional decision making process to optimize pollution control;
(iii) develop robust control strategies, including advanced chemical processes combined with biological systems.

The high number of pharmaceuticals and the wide variety of biodegradation and speciation processes characteristic to these compounds require the development of a modelling framework – an aim that this fellowship advocates.

The successful candidate has training and interest in one or more of the following area: environmental biotechnology and process modelling.

The candidate will have a high motivation for research and solid written and oral communication skills.

The applicants will enjoy working in and contributing to an international and cross-disciplinary research team.

English is the operational language of the department.

At the date of appointment, candidates must have obtained a M. Sc. in Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Environmental Science, Chemistry or related discipline, evidence of research experience, and significant exposure to one or more of the following fields: mathematical modelling; bioengineering; chemical engineering; wastewater treatment; organic chemistry.
