Technologies for Bulk Aromatics Production' (1.0 FTE)

Job description The Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development offers a 4-year PhD position on the sustainability assessment of three novel renewable carbon- based technology platforms for bulk aromatics production. This vacancy is part of the recently awarded project “Aromatic Renewables as an Opportunity for MATerials with Improved Circularity and Sustainability" (AROMATICS) which has been funded as part of the Dutch Missiegedreven Onderzoek, Ontwikkeling en Innovatie (MOOI) program.
