JOB PURPOSE / PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Research Area at ICRA: Technologies and evaluation (TiA)
Project: Impact of emerging pollutants on in hydroponic systems/nature-based solutions with a duration of 3 years (2020-2023).
The researcher will be integrated in a multidisciplinary research team working on NBS for water treatment.
The researcher will conduct experiments with greywater hydroponic systems in the context of circular economy in the laboratories of ICRA and/or in the DEMO site (Lloret de Mar).
The tasks of the project involve:
Literature studies on nature-based solutions, plant physiology, greywater, organic micropollutants and/or microplastics in water reuse/circular economy systems, in order to evaluate research gaps.
Running, control and monitoring of hydroponic pilot/bench scale systems for greywater treatment and nutrient recovery.
Pre-treatments of samples, collection and evaluation of results in terms of standard parameters and emerging pollutants in water and plants (possibly also chromatography-mass spectrometry quantification).
When needed, collaborate with other on-going projects in the group on NBS for sanitation.
Writing scientific reports and scientific papers.
As with all technicians, PhD students and postdoctoral fellows a small proportion of the time will be allocated to communal services such as joint laboratory maintenance, but also team-building activities.
