Updates on engineering and architecture jobs available around the world

Interview Date: Wednesday 01 May 2024

This is an exciting opportunity for highly motivated postdoctoral researchers with a keen interest in life cycle assessment (LCA) applied to translational research, to work at the core of a new knowledge exchange facility: the Innovation Centre for Applied and Sustainable Technologies (iCAST).   

Specifically, you will be engaged in delivering at any given time various Joint Industry Projects (JIPs) – short proof of principle and feasibility studies – and will focus on assessing the sustainability of industrial technologies and processes. 

JIPs will be developed and delivered in collaboration with iCAST industrial members and will mainly be in the following technical areas:

  • Renewable and Bio-based Feedstocks (for commodity and high value chemicals)
  • Circular Plastics and Sustainable Polymers (degradability, recycling, non-fossil feedstocks)
  • Sustainable Engineering Materials (composites, built environment)
  • Sustainable Manufacturing (green and sustainable chemistry, digitalisation, process intensification, distributed manufacturing).

About us:

The £17M Innovation Centre for Applied and Sustainable Technologies (iCAST) is a new, unique innovation facility hosted by the Centre for Sustainable and Circular Technologies (CSCT) at Bath. 

Its purpose is to kick-start a step-change in the UK industrial strategy for translating sustainable chemical technologies into clean growth. 

Its ambition is to be the go-to place for companies working on clean growth technologies to easily invest in R&D and to partner with critical mass academic strength to enable them to scaleup, deliver innovation commercially and deliver economic impact, build supply chains, jobs and green growth in the UK and overseas.
