Three (3) junior researchers, Department of Green Chemistry

Lappeenranta University of Technology, LUT. LUT’s Trailblazer strategy is searching for answers to four key questions: Are we going to burn up everything? Is humanity condemned to suffer from the water it has polluted? Will waste be the grave of our future? Will we let Europe degenerate to the world’s back yard? No. We will lead the way with a trailblazer spirit. We have been ranked among the world’s top universities (Times Higher Education and QS rankings). We are compact by size, with intensely focused operations. Combining technology and business, we have served as an academic forerunner since 1969. Our international science community encompasses 6,500 students and experts.

LUT’s Department of Green Chemistry focuses on minimizing the hazards and maximizing the efficiency of any chemical choice. One approach is to find new solutions to prevent and decrease environmental pollution.

We are now seeking three (3) junior researchers.

The junior researchers will be working in research projects related to advanced water treatment and biogas production.

A junior researcher should have an MSc degree in a relevant field of chemical engineering, environmental engineering or chemistry, the ability to complete the doctoral studies in the target time, and a postgraduate study and research plan.

The employment relationship is fixed-term with a four-month trial period. The objective is to complete the doctoral degree within the target time of four years. The work starts with a two-year term, which can be extended for another two years provided that the studies have progressed satisfactorily. The junior researcher must obtain the postgraduate study right for the doctoral degree within one year of the beginning of the employment relationship.

The salary will be determined according to the university salary system for teaching and research personnel, job grades 1-4 (EUR 1826.50-2500.06/month). In addition, the salary will include an individual pay component based on performance and competence, amounting to a maximum of 46.3 % of the job-specific pay component.

The work will start as agreed with the employer. The positions are located in Mikkeli.

The junior researchers will be hired only if pending project funding applications are approved.
