Brief description of the institution:

The OPEUVa supports the researchers of the Valladolid University in the preparation, presentation, negotiation, management and justification of European projects, accompanying them in the whole process, from the generation of the project idea up to the ending of the same one.

Brief description of the Centre/Research Group (including URL if applicable):

The Environmental Technology group started its research activities in the early 80s focused on the anaerobic treatment of industrial wastewaters and biological nutrient removal. Other research lines such as biological gas treatment, microalgae based wastewater treatment and bioconversion of residual biomass to added-value bioproducts were initiated in the early 2000s. Since 1980, the group of Environmental Technology at UVa has conducted a sustained and intense labour in the development of cost-effective technologies for pollution bioconversion. Today, the main research lines of EnvTech Group are: 1- Biological treatment of off-gases and biogas upgrading, 2- Anaerobic treatment of solid waste and sludge, 3- Nutrients removal, 4- Microalgae-based wastewater treatment, 5- Emerging pollutants removal, and 6- Bioconversion of lignocellulosic materials into biofuels.  The research activity of the Environmental Technology group has been recognized and financed within the frame of public R&D projects from the Spanish Ministry for Science and Education and the EU (26 projects with a total budget of ≈5.026.943 € in the past 10 years). The research group has also collaborated with private companies aiming at reinforcing the mechanisms of knowledge transfer between University and Industry (62 projects with a total budget of ≈4.935.019 € in the past 10 years)

Project description:

The project aims at engineering novel cost-effective and environmentally friendly bioprocesses for the abatement of greenhouse gases using a waste-to-value biorefinery approach. This goal will be achieved with a multidisciplinary approach involving:

i) the development of high-mass transfer bioreactors

ii) the optimisation of process microbiology for the bioconversion of greenhouse gases to multiple high-added-value/commodity bioproducts

  • DESCRIPTION OF THE OFFER

A post-doctoral researcher on mathematical modelling with expertise in computational fluid dynamics is needed to support in the optimization of the hydrodynamic design of the bioreactors and in the integration of Process microbiology on the overall bioreactor description

PhD on mathematical modelling of environmental or chemical process

Knowledge on Computational Fluid Dynamics
