Groundwater-surface water interactions

The RESTORE Research Group in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Western University is seeking a post-doctoral fellow and a PhD student to conduct research on assessing the contribution of groundwater in delivering phosphorus to agricultural streams. The post-doctoral fellow and PhD student will work on a large collaborative research project funded by the NSERC Strategic Project Grant Program that aims to evaluate the ecological response of agricultural streams to groundwater-derived phosphorus.

Graduate research assistant

Three graduate research assistant positions are available (starting from summer or fall of 2018) at Florida A&M University. Successful applicants will pursue research on land-use changes in response to climate change and related areas. Two positions are for United States citizens or permanent residents only. Graduate students can pursue M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in civil engineering (Ph.D.

Environmental Engineering

The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, also known as Virginia Tech, invites applications for four Graduate Research Associate positions in Environmental Engineering to pursue research in three directions described below. These graduate students will conduct research in the Sustainable Environment Research Laboratory of Dr. Zhiwu (Drew) Wang stationed at the Northern Virginia Campus within the Washington metropolitan area.  

Environmental Chemistry

Over the last several decades, concern has increased over the effects of chronic low-level exposure of aquatic wildlife to endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs). In aquatic systems, EDCs are potent at trace concentrations (e.g., <100 ng/L) and can enter an organism via multiple pathways. Following exposure, EDCs are typically nonlethal but can elicit a variety of adverse effects on the body (e.g., reduced immune function, reduced egg production, skewed sex ratios). Therefore, many EDC exposure can result in population-level declines resulting from decreased reproductive performance.

Environmental Engineering

We like to invite you for exciting opportunities for our Ph.D. program and research in the Department of Energy, Environmental and Chemical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. We have close to 100 Ph.D. students that form a vibrant cohort group. Our Ph.D. graduates are gainfully employed as faculty at other Universities, in leading positions in Industry and National Laboratories, Think Tanks and some create their own successful start-up companies.  We have set up a Ph.D.

Phosphorus recycling and recovery

Up to two graduate research assistant positions are available in the University of Oklahoma School of Civil Engineering and Environmental Science.  Successful applicants will pursue research on phosphorus recovery and recycling using agricultural wastes.  Because there are no conceivable substitutes for phosphorus in food production, and because phosphorus reserves are limited, recycling and recovery efforts are critical for this resource.  This project will investigate and identify environmentally sustainable processes for recovering phosphorus from animal wastewaters using materials deriv
