The position will likely commence from the Fall of 2015. Applicants are expected to have a strong background and interest in coupled infrastructure systems analysis.
The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering (CCEE) (www.ce.ncsu.edu/) at North Carolina State University (NCSU) received support from the National Science Foundation to establish an international virtual institute to study solid waste management (SWM) life-cycle modeling in collaboration with researchers at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
The John A. Reif, Jr. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is seeking applications for a highly motivated PhD student to conduct research in the areas of environmental nanotechnology, material chemistry, microalgae or photocatalysis. The position will commence either in the summer or Fall of 2015. Applicants are expected to have a strong background and interest in environmental and analytical chemistry and on the characterization of nanomaterials, algae, and organic matters.
UV Disinfection is well known to be effective for inactivation of microorganisms and protection of water quality for potable use. Recent advances in light emitting diode (LED) technology has allowed for the development of LED devices that emit in the germicidal UV wavelength range. The availability of deep UV LEDs has created the opportunity for design and development of next generation UV applications for disinfection.
The Environmental Engineering Program at the University of Connecticut is seeking a Ph.D. level research assistant for a project focused on functionalization of nanofibrous activated carbon materials for water treatment. The ideal candidate would have knowledge of environmental chemistry and synthetic chemistry with experience in material science characteriziation approaches (FTIR, SEM, XPS) and analytical chemistry (HPLC, ICP-MS). Candidates with degrees in Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering, or Chemistry (M.S. preferred) are highly desirable.
The Center for Water and the Environment at the University of New Mexico is seeking a highly qualified candidate for a research assistantship starting in Fall 2015; the candidate will complete a dual masters degree in Water Resources and Community and Regional Planning. The research assistantship will address the effects of educational strategies and treatment scenario costs on public acceptance of, and attitudes toward, planned potable water reuse.
Master of Applied Science (MASc) students are being sought for the Fall 2015 semester at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). The students will work on projects related to the techno-economic and environmental assessment of energy systems. A successful applicant will hold a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical, Mechanical or Environmental Engineering, or a related discipline. Familiarity with conventional and renewable energy systems, as well as life cycle assessment, would be an asset.
Recruiting 3-4 Graduate Research Assistants (MS or PhD) to work on an international interdisciplinary project on sustainable cities in India and China. This is a great opportunity for those with a background in engineering, environmental sciences, industrial ecology, or environmental studies.
The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at North Carolina State University is looking for two highly motivated PhD students to conduct research in the area of environmental biotechnology starting in either spring, summer, or fall 2015. The students will work with Dr. Douglas Call to develop waste-to-energy technologies, such as microbial fuel cells, and investigate microbial-based energy extraction from methane as part of a recently funded project.
Dr. Xu invites applications for a graduate research assistantship at master/PhD level in the department of civil and environmental engineering at Villanova University. Dr. Xu’s research interest builds upon the fundamental understanding of environmental interfacial chemistry, with the goal of applying them to both natural and engineered systems to address today’s environmental challenges. The specific project involves engineering adsorbents for emerging contaminants removal.
