The Laboratory of Environmental Chemistry at EPFL is interested in naturally occurring processes in surface water that can lead to the inactivation of viral pathogens. Some of the most effective water treatment methods (e.g., waste stabilization ponds) rely on such natural disinfection processes. Even though these treatment methods are extensively used, little is known about the factors that control virus inactivation.

We are currently looking for a PhD student to carry out a thesis in the area of virus-particle interactions and their effect on virus disinfection. In particular, we are interested in understanding how electrostatic forces or radicals produced from photo-active particles affect virus viability. For this project, we will use a combination of analytical and photochemical techniques, as well as molecular biological methods. Our long-term goal is to use the knowledge gained from our research to improve existing water treatment systems, and develop novel, more effective methods at a low cost.

Highly motivated candidates with a Masters degree in environmental sciences, chemistry, biology or a related field, and with a strong interest in water treatment are encouraged to apply. The group language is English, therefore a good command of both spoken and written English is essential.

Please send a letter of motivation, your CV, the name and contact information of two references and a 2-3 page summary of your Master thesis to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
