STUDENT PLACEMENT OPPORTUNITY
A position is open for a student placement with the PCTG. This is a “year in industry” placement for a chemistry or chemical engineering student at a UK university who is partway through his/her undergraduate course of study. The placement requires the student to support the work of the PCTG’s Committee, and provides an opportunity to collaborate with one or more of the companies associated with the PCTG, thereby gaining exposure to a range of technical activities in the chemical industry.
The main projects expected during the placement year are:
Developing ProcTank, a process chemistry and technology knowledge repository under construction by the PCTG.
Supporting and shadowing chemical process safety related projects with xSeriCon, a Hong Kong-based process safety consultancy.
Supporting xSeriCon in its project to develop a waste plastic reprocessing facility.
The selected candidate will work closely and remotely with PCTG committee members and xSeriCon staff. Work will be exclusively from home until COVID-19 is resolved, whereafter travel to support PCTG and xSeriCon projects is a possibility. A bursary and expenses will be provided.
