I am interested in the above mentioned posting of Research Associate in Environmental Engineering and Microbial Ecology. I possess a Masters degree in Energy and Environment and over ten years of related industry working experience. I have also worked on the Global Water Pathogen Project in Uganda under National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) where I was part of the team alongside other international and local collaborating partners working on developing the Pathogen Flow Tool.
