University of Twente
We invite applications for a postdoctoral research position to study and investigate commercially available membranes
for new applications for an industrial partner. The main goal is to understand the separation behavior of these membranes
especially in aggressive environments, but also to investigate and fundamentally understand some of the unique features
of this membrane related to its fabrication process. As you will closely work together with the industrial partner, good
communication and project management skills are key in this project.
You will be part of the European Membrane Institute Twente (EMI Twente) of the University of Twente, which is part of the
research cluster Membrane Science and Technology (www.membrane.nl). EMI Twente aims to bridge the gap between academia and
industry by translating academic know-how into ultimately new demonstrated products and processes for the industry. This
is typically done in the form of bilateral confidential research and development projects.
As a researcher of the EMI Twente you are expected to perform research of high quality, efficiently collaborate with
industrial partners, contributing to the success of the EMI Twente.
The successful candidate will be a motivated researcher with a PhD in chemical engineering, physics or chemistry
with affinity for membrane science and technology. Expertise and track record in membrane formation and/or membrane
transport behavior are preferred. We expect a creative person that shows self-initiative with a hands-on mentality
and independent team-oriented style of working. The candidate should have good communication skills backed with a
good command of the English language.
Information and application
For further information, you can contact Dr. Tymen Visser (firstname.lastname@example.org). Candidates are invited to upload
