At Cranfield, we can offer you the opportunity and resources to rapidly develop your career.  Water is one of eight themes at Cranfield and Cranfield Water Science Institute (CWSI) has an international reputation for its transformational research and teaching in the science, engineering and management of water in the municipal, industrial and natural environments. We have been working in water for over 40 years. Our academic and research staff, including scientists, engineers, technologists, policy specialists and social scientists are engaged in delivering postgraduate teaching, research, consultancy and training in an international arena.

The university has a well established reputation in public health science and engineering through its leading edge research in water and wastewater treatment. This has principally focused on the microbiological quality of drinking water as water companies strive to achieve zero microbiological failures. Our activities in this area include the development of diagnostic tools to rapidly evaluate the microbial quality of drinking water, risk management processes for controlling water quality, novel disinfection strategies and the influence of water quality parameters on disinfection efficacy. The new appointment will be expected to extend and further develop our offer in microbiological analysis, water treatment, and public health, working across the fields of water and wastewater treatment in both high and low income country contexts.

You will provide research and teaching contributions to well-established drinking water and wastewater treatment teams within CWSI. You will be expected to rapidly embed yourself within CWSI's existing teaching and research activities, adapt to the Institute's ethos, make significant contributions to the MSc courses and generate significant research and teaching income through leading large grant bids and organising short courses.

You will have a PhD or EngD Degree in a field related to Public Health Microbiology (ideally as applied to drinking water and/or wastewater contexts), a growing track record of winning and delivering research projects sponsored by both the public and private sectors, a strong peer-reviewed publication track record, and experience of teaching and supervision at post-graduate level. Your experience should have provided you with a deep understanding of the public health challenges faced by the water sector.
