The research group of Professor Irene M. C. Lo at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, would like to invite applications for PhD study in the research area of superparamagnetic nano-photocatalysts for wastewater treatment. The candidate should have a strong research background in (1) adsorption or photocatalytic process, (2) material design and synthesis of magnetic nano-adsorbents or nano-photocatalysts for pollutant removal from wastewater and (3) operating analytical equipment such as SEM, XRD, TEM, Raman, XPS, FTIR etc. The ideal PhD candidate is also expected to have proficient communication skills in both written and spoken English with IELTs score of 6.5 or above. Interested candidates should apply by sending curriculum vitae, UG & Master transcripts, IELTs result, research publications if any, and names of referees to Prof. Irene M.C. Lo (firstname.lastname@example.org). Financial support at a rate of HKD 15000 per month will be provided. Review of PhD applications will begin immediately and continue until 31 August 2016. The Fall term and Spring term start on 1st Sept 2016 and 1st Feb 2017, respectively.
