Three PhD Positions Available at Lappeenranta University of Technology

Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) is an agile, international science university – a pioneer in combining technology and business ever since 1969. Our strategic focus areas are green energy and technology, sustainable value creation and our role as an international hub of Russian relations. LUT’s operation is solution-focused and characterized by ”open your mind” thinking: crossing boundaries open-mindedly, together. LUT´s Laboratory of Green Chemistry is focused on minimizing the hazard and maximizing the efficiency of any chemical choice. One approach is also to find new solutions to prevent and decrease environmental pollution.

The Laboratory is located in Mikkeli, Finland and Head of the Laboratory is Prof. Mika Sillanpää. In the past, the laboratory has specialized in water analysis and water, wastewater and soil purification techniques in following research areas:

• Adsorption

• Advanced oxidation processes (AOPs)

• Analytics and online monitoring

• Electrochemical technologies and electrokinetics

We now have three Doctoral Student positions available which are related to mine water treatment and management within the following specific topics. The overall aim of the project is to convert a liquid waste into a resource by using intelligent techniques and the result shall be mine water winning instead of mine water treatment. Those positions will be under the supervision of Prof. Mika Sillanpää and Dr. habil. Christian Wolkersdorfer who is Finnish Distinguished Professor for Mine Water Management and South African Research Chair for Acid Mine Drainage Treatment.
