Membrane Separations for the ‘Total Recovery of All Platinum Group Metals’ (TRAP)

Supervisors:  The project will be supervised by Dr Darrell Alec Patterson and Dr Janet Scott

This position is provided by the University of Bath as part of a major project) funded by Innovate UK to Dr Darrell Patterson and Dr Janet Scott (as the University of Bath partners) entitled “Total Recovery of All PGMs (TRAP)’.

The project focusses on Platinum Group Metals (PGMs), which are not produced in the UK, yet these valuable materials are key to catalysts used to prepare a range of bulk, fine and pharmaceutical chemicals. Recovery of PGMs from waste streams and recycling back into manufacturing processes is critical to keep these industries producing the quality of life enhancing chemicals required. PhosphonicS works with partners to use scavenger materials to recover a range of PGMs from waste streams, but more effective processes are required. Focussing on Rh, one of the most valuable ($1100 / troy oz), but difficult to recover, PGMs, we will develop an integrated solution using advanced nanofiltration membranes and biopolymer supported scavengers that will work in corrosive waste streams managed by Veolia.

This position is for a postdoctoral research associate to determine the optimal membranes and membrane conditions for TRAP. To do this, you will be part of a project team working with researchers from Chemical Engineering and Chemistry at the University of Bath, PhosphonicS and Veolia. A PDRA working in Chemistry (Janet Scott) will run parallel with this project.

As part of this position you will be employed by the University of Bath for the first 12 months of the project, with the understanding that you will then be employed as an equivalent position at lead partner PhosphonicS for the next 12 months to carry on and extend the work completed at Bath with them. Therefore this position is effectively for 24 months.

Candidates should have a first degree and PhD in chemical engineering, chemistry, or materials science/engineering and have a track record of high impact journal publications. They should have demonstrated excellent laboratory skills membrane characterisation and testing and should clearly understand aspects of membrane science and engineering relevant to the development of membrane fractionation cascades. The successful candidates will need to have exceptional team-working and communication skills, so as to interact effectively with other researchers to ensure a cohesive, focussed team drives this project forward.  

This post is full time (36.5 hours per week) and is being offered on a fixed term contract basis with an expected expiry date of 31 October 2016.  The ideal start date for this post would be 1 November 2015.

For more details contact Dr Darrell Alec Patterson (d.patterson@bath.ac.uk), http://www.bath.ac.uk/chem-eng/people/pattersonand go.bath.ac.uk/membranes.

A Research Associate position is available for a period of 6 months starting as soon as possible, but no later than 1st November 2015, to develop a demonstrator/prototype of a non-invasive glucose monitor. The technology is based on a novel concept jointly developed between the Departments of Physics (Dr. Adelina Ilie) and Pharmacy & Pharmacology (Prof. Richard Guy and Prof. Rex Tyrrell) and aimed at providing clinical grade glucose monitoring non-invasively to help prevent and control diabetes.

The project is supported by specific EPSRC/MRC funding to allow the technology to reach a point of commercial realization with a commercial partner. Its potential for impact is considerable given the context that the world-wide incidence of diabetes is predicted by the World Health Organization to rise from 171M in 2000 to 366M in 2030. Furthermore, it taps into the exciting and expanding field of personal health monitoring, which is expected to grow to $70B by 2024.

Candidates should ideally have experience in one or more of the following areas: bionanotechnology, biosensors (microfabrication and characterisation), electrochemistry, and microfabrication processes in a cleanroom environment. Experience with graphene or measurement automation techniques (LabView etc.) would be desirable, though not essential.

The Centre for the Analysis of Motion, Entertainment Research and Applications (CAMERA) is a new EPSRC funded research centre based at the Universiy of Bath (Departments of Computer Science and Health). CAMERA has over £10m of initial research commitment, including £5m from the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) and an expectation for growth and long-term sustainability beyond the current 5-year funding. The aim of CAMERA is to create research impact in the areas of Entertainment, Human Performance Enhancement (e.g. Sport and Training) and Assistive Technologies (e.g. Health). A central theme is the application of entertainment technologies (e.g. Motion Capture) to new areas in Sport, Training and Health with existing external partners.

CAMERA has several existing world-class partners across Entertainment, Sport and Health, including: The Imaginarium, The Foundy, The Ministry of Defence (MoD), British Maritime Technologies (BMT) and British Skeleton.

We are seeking a talented, enthusiastic and motivated Computer Vision researcher to develop highly accurate marker-less 2D and 3D motion capture and analysis algorithms. The post-holder will work closely with biomechanics and rehabilitation experts to evolve and develop these techniques for use with elite athletes (British Skeleton in the first instance) and patients recovering from limb injury (with the MoD). There is also the opportunity to overlap with other researchers in CAMERA to apply these techniques to motion analysis in video games and visual effects with The Imaginarium and The Foundry. There is also the further prospect to use these techniques in commercial opportunities that might arise. 

This role is offered on a fixed-term contract (full time).

Interviews will be held in early October - exact date to be confirmed.

For enquiries, please contact Dr. Darren Cosker (dpc@cs.bath.ac.uk)

How it works

A job is a regular activity performed in exchange for payment. A person usually begins a job by becoming an employee, volunteering, or starting a business.

The duration of a job may range from an hour (in the case of odd jobs) to a lifetime (in the case of some judges). The activity that requires a person’s mental or physical effort is work (as in “a day’s work”). If a person is trained for a certain type of job, they may have a profession. The series of jobs a person holds in their life is their career.
