We are developing an electronic water quality monitoring device. The device has some sensors such as pH, Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP), Electrical Conductivity (EC) and Temperature. Using these measured parameters, we also want to estimate other water quality parameters such as Total Alkalinity (TA), Calcium Hardness (CH), Free Chlorine (FC), etc.
For this, we're looking for a water/aquatic chemistry expert who can perform the following tasks:
1. Provide expert consultancy on various water quality parameters and their measurement using sensors (error, drift, calibration, reliability, etc.)
2. Provide/derive/develop theoretical relationships/formulae for deriving the estimated parameters from the measured parameters
3. Validate the formulae experimentally over a wide set of water samples
The ideal candidate will have an advanced degree in Chemistry, preferably with a background/expertise in Aquatic Chemistry and hands-on experience performing water quality measurements. The candidate should be a self-starter and be able to work with minimal supervision. More details available to applicants to review upon request.
