Environmental Engineering

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Utah is seeking Ph.D students to work under the guidance of Dr. Ramesh Goel beginning January 2014. The first project will focus on nutrient cycling in natural systems such as in streams and wetlands. The ideal candidate will possess a M.S. in Environmental Engineering, ecological Engineering, or related field. The second project will focus on bacteriophages in engineered system. This project involves phage and bacterial metagenomics, transcriptomics and the use of bioinformatics.  

Environmental Engineering

The Environmental Engineering Program at Auburn University is looking for highly motivated Ph.D. students and research scholars to carry out research projects in the following areas:

 

1)      Nanomaterials and nanotechnologies for environmental cleanup uses, and

2)      Physical chemical processes related to oil/PAHs weathering and photochemical degradation, and interactions between oil-dispersants and sediments

 

Environmental Engineering

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 Digestion and Process Control

Bioenergy and Environment Research Group at The University of Hawaii at Manoa has an immediate opening for a graduate student (M.S. or Ph.D.) in the field of anaerobic digestion. The selected student will work on process control of high solids digestion. We prefer a candidate with research background in high solid digestion especially tropical grass and other perennial crops, bioreactor design and operation, and process control. B.S. in engineering or a closely related engineering field is required. The candidate must have superior academic background.

Environmental Engineering

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno, is seeking two graduate students (Ph.D. candidates preferred) to work with Dr. Edward Kolodziej on NSF and USDA AFRI funded projects beginning in January 2014.  These projects focus on contaminant fate and transformations in lab scale and field scale systems, with a strong emphasis on identification and characterization of novel contaminants and reaction pathways.

Anaerobic Biorefinery

Tropical Biogas Research Program established by Dr. Samir K Khanal at The University of Hawaii at Manoa has an immediate opening for a graduate student (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 tropical grass and other perennial crops, bioreactor design and operation, process microbiology and system modeling. B.S./M.S.

Biological Nitrogen Transformation

Bioenergy and Environment Research Group (http://www2.hawaii.edu/~khanal/) in the Department of Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering at The University of Hawaii at Manoa has an immediate opening for a graduate student (Ph.D.) in the field of nitrogen transformation in aquaponic system funded through USDA’s AFRI Program.  The selected candidate will examine the distribution of nitrogen input in aquaponic systems under optimum conditions based on nitrogen mass balance study and nitrogen-stable isotope analyses.

Environmental Engineering and 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. Preference will be given to candidates with previous experience with LC-MS/MS and molecular methods.

Environmental Engineering / Environmental Microbiology

The research group of Dr. Patrick Lee at the School of Energy and Environment is currently recruiting a candidate interested in pursuing PhD study in the area of environmental microbiology, bioenergy, environmental engineering, bioinformatics or biotechnology to join our interdisciplinary research team. The candidate should hold a bachelor or master degree in related areas. The successful candidate will be supported through a studentship for three years. The PhD study will commence as early as April 2014. Interested applicants should contact Dr.

Environmental Biotechnology

The Environmental Biotechnology & Bioenergy Laboratory (EBBL) at Virginia Tech is looking for two PhD students starting in spring or fall 2014. The students will work on the federal- or foundation-funded projects to develop bioelectrochemical systems for energy-efficient wastewater treatment. The ideal candidate will possess a M.S. in Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering, or related fields, though exceptional B.S.-level candidates may also be considered.
