Senior Membrane technologist
Aqualung Carbon Capture
The role will be development and deployment oriented, with additional field and office work. The responsibilities revolve around membrane product development and upscaling, as well as continuous improvement to existing portfolio and integrating products into processes. The tasks will include experimental lab work, product manufacturing, quality control with field testing, and management of research collaborations, and will be responsive and improvisational in nature. As a senior membrane expert at Aqualung, you will be joining an experienced and dynamic team of engineers and scientists with expertise across membrane science, industrial plant engineering, and product development. The current focus is on delivering modular, pilot-scale carbon capture units as a steppingstone towards full-scale industrial decarbonization. The patented membrane system is at the heart of the process.
Research Manager
Aqualung Carbon Capture
As a Research Manager at Aqualung, you will be joining an experienced and dynamic team of scientists and engineers working in upscaling and commercialising our wide range of membrane products that are customized for each client. Aqualung is commercialising scalable and modular carbon capture solutions with the patented membrane technology at the heart of the process. For our pilot projects, Aqualung has developed various inhouse coating technologies to produce industrial scale membrane modules which are delivered at various specifications to different customers. We share our production facilities with NTNU in Trondheim which houses advanced membrane production and testing infrastructure. The R&D manager will be mainly steering activities in our research facilities focussing on solving challenges in our commercialisation pathways and improvisation of our products. Some fabrication and testing of membrane modules can also be expected. The manager must adhere to and improve HSE regulations and implement 5S quality standards in daily activities in his/her team.

PhD position on Modelling Micropollutant Removal using Charge-Mosaic Nanofiltration Membranes
University of Twente
Within Membrane Surface Science (MSuS) and Soft Matter, Fluidics and Interfaces (SFI), both part of the Department of Membrane Science & Technology (MST) of the University of Twente, the Netherlands (, we have a vacancy for a PhD student.

There is growing awareness and concern about the presence of so-called micro-pollutants (MPs) in our surface water and drinking water. MPs, very small organic molecules (100-1000 Dalton), stem from industrial, medicinal, and agricultural waste. They have the potential to cause long-term harm to humans and the environment, something especially true for MPs classified as Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals. Even at very low concentrations these MPs can have a significant negative effect on health and environment.

As part of the European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant (CoG) project “MOSAIC”, this PhD project will work on a challenging novel membrane approach to effectively remove MPs from surface and drinking water. Charge-mosaic membranes comprise a nanoscale pattern of positively and negatively charged patches. These membranes have unique separation properties, rejecting the organic micropollutants while allowing salts to pass. In this project a model will be developed to describe and predict the separation behavior of Mosaic based Nanofiltration membranes. A focus will be on connecting the size and relative occurrence of the positive and negative domains, to the retention behavior for salt solutions and MPs. Initially this will be done on the basis of the more simple Solution-Diffusion model and extended to more complex models based on ion and fluid transport phenomena and physical chemistry (Poisson-Nernst-Planck and Navier-Stokes).
