The SA Water Centre for Water Management and Reuse has secured research funding to undertake research in developing novel alternative desalination processes and is seeking a Research Associate to work on this project. The Research Associate will conduct research in the area of nano-structured carbon materials as electrodes in the capacitive deionisation process under the supervision of the project Leader.
The University of South Australia (UniSA
) has a strong commitment to industry-focused research. The SA Water Centre for Water Management and Reuse (CWMR) is co-funded by SA Water and was established by UniSA
and SA Water in 2004 to provide an environment in which world class research is conducted.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in materials science/engineering, nanomaterials, chemistry
or related area and a research background in carbon based nanomaterials with knowledge of materials synthesis, preferable of graphene and mesoporous carbon materials, and characterisation with a focus of the surface physical and chemical properties using, ie: TEM, BET, AFM, XPS and XRD etc.
The successful candidate will also have demonstrated organisational and project management skills, the ability to work in a team within a sophisticated chemical/physical research laboratory environment, and a record of high quality peer reviewed publications and conference presentations commensurate with opportunity.
Applications close: 9.00am Monday 18 October 2010
