Job Description: 

Postdoctoral research fellow position in membrane fabrication and process engineering for water treatment or other water treatment technology

A postdoctoral research fellow position in the areas of membrane fabrication and process engineering or other water treatment technology are available in Sustainable Water Treatment Laboratory (SWAT) at Sungkyunkwan University. We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher (The person who holds Ph.D in Environmental Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Environmental Biotechnology or related fields is strongly recommended). The successful candidates must possess excellent communication skills (with spoken/written English) and be highly motivated and self-directed. Korean candidate will can be preferred due to our research project

The postdoctoral researcher will conduct research on membrane-based water treatment, membrane fabrication, membrane fouling, process engineering for clean water production and wastewater treatment, and oxidation or biological process. Ideal candidates should have a strong background in laboratory experiments with membrane process experience (e.g., membrane-based desalination and wastewater treatment based on mass & heat transport, fluid dynamics, process engineering), membrane fouling analysis (e.g., biofouling (microbiology technique), organic/inorganic/particle fouling), membrane fabrication (e.g., polymeric membrane, inorganic (ceramic and nano-composite) membrane). In addition, any candidates highly experienced in computational programming (e.g., Computational Fluid Dynamics, Matlab, and etc.) would be given preferential treatment.

The appointment will be extended up to 2 years based upon satisfactory performance. We will provide competitive salary/benefits depending on the candidate's qualification under the University guideline. The position is immediately available and will remain open until filled. Candidates can apply by sending a single PDF file, including 1) a cover letter describing research interests/strengths, 2) a CV, and 3) contact information of at least three references, to Prof. Jang Am (amajng@skku.edu).
