Graduate

Environmental Engineering/Environmental Microbiology

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Michigan State University is seeking a Ph.D. student to work under the guidance of Dr. Alison Cupples beginning January 2014. The project will focus on the biodegradation of contaminants of emerging concern in agroecosystems. The ideal candidate will possess a M.S. in Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering, or related field.

Anaerobic Biorefinery

Dr. Khanal's Bioenergy and Environment Research lab at The University of Hawaii at Manoa has an immediate opening for two graduate students (Ph.D.) in the field of anaerobic biorefinery. The selected candidate will work on various aspects of anaerobic digestion research for bioenergy and other high-value co-products production including various platform chemicals. We prefer a candidate with research background in high solid digestion especially energy crops, bioreactor design and operation, process microbiology and system modeling. B.S./M.S.

Environmental Engineering

The Environmental Engineering Program at the University of Colorado Boulder is seeking 1-2 Ph.D students starting in Spring or Fall 2014. The students will work with Dr. Zhiyong Jason Ren on Microbial Water Desalination or Bioenergy and Bioresource Recovery Projects that are funded by federal agencies. Past research experience in membrane desalination processes, microbial fuel cells, or electrochemistry is preferred. 

Environmental Engineering (broad)

The Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering (CArE) department at the Missouri University of Science and Technology is pleased to announce two PhD positions and a competition for two PhD fellowships. PhD positions are available in the areas of 1) indoor air pollution with a focus on aerosol interactions with low-volatility organics and the influence on human exposure and, 2) phytoforensics with a focus on using vapor uptake in plants to improve vapor intrusion risk assessment in buildings.
