Research Fellow (81441-018)

Full-time fixed term post available until 31st January 2021.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and dynamic researcher to work on “PATHWAYS and evolution of pollutants: Interactions between physical controlling effects, microbial community composition and pollutant biodegradation”.

The project will employ a range of novel fundamental research approaches, including laboratory and field tracer studies, data interpretation and simulations, to ascertain the physical and microbial pathways determining the fate of pollutants within a range of flow regimes.

This post is based at the University of Warwick (using our advanced experimental flumes in Engineering, and laboratory facilities in Life Sciences), but the successful candidate will be required to make regular trips to India sometimes for extended periods to participate in field work, workshops, etc.

You will be responsible for conducting the research as outlined above in collaboration with others. You will also be expected to support the group's PhD students in their analyses and provide a small amount of undergraduate and MSc teaching.
