LUT Department of Separation Science seeks talented junior researchers.
The Department of Separation Science at LUT is the largest and most versatile academic research unit in Finland focusing on separation technologies. The department employs approximately 100 researchers studying e.g. adsorption, membrane separation, solid/liquid separation, dissolution, solvent extraction, advanced oxidation processes and chromatography. Application areas from mining and mineral processing to biorefining and wastewater treatment. The focus area includes solid/liquid, liquid/liquid and gas separation. The focus is on the development of advanced and sustainable processes to enable resource efficient raw material utilization and the minimization of created waste. The aim is to develop advanced processes, and both unit operations and hybrid processes are under examination and being developed. In addition, novel separation matrices are developed: for instance, membranes and adsorbents and ways to tailor separation matrices to enable improved selectivity. The department operates across three locations in Finland – Lappeenranta, Lahti and Mikkeli – with state-of-the-art laboratories and works in close collaboration with industry.
The potential applicant must have a higher university degree (M.Sc. or equivalent) in a relevant field (e.g. chemical engineering, chemistry, material science, or similar) and the ability and motivation to complete the doctoral studies within the normative duration of the studies for the degree (i.e. four years). The candidate will draft a postgraduate study and research plan guided by the supervisor of the doctoral work once the work starts.
The postgraduate study right will be granted once the candidate has demonstrated the capability to complete the doctoral work within the expected duration. For this, the candidate completes at least 10 ECTS credits of studies suitable for the doctoral degree (for example doctoral courses, literature studies) and shows evidence of publication activity (typically a submitted journal manuscript). For further information, see the guidelines of the Doctoral Programme in Engineering Science. The junior researcher must obtain the postgraduate study right for the doctoral degree within one year of the beginning of the employment relationship.
The employment starts with a one-year term, including a six-month trial period, and can be extended for another three years provided that the studies have progressed satisfactorily. The salary is determined based on the salary system of Finnish universities.
Please fill out the online application form and attach the following documents:
Only applications submitted through the university’s online application system will be considered. Suitable candidates are contacted as positions become available. Your application will remain valid for 12 months.
