Ms and PhD research opportunities in Environmental Science and Engineering Program at KAUST
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.
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.

The Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Texas A&M University is looking for three highly motivated doctoral students to conduct research to develop novel water treatment technologies under the guidance of Dr. Yong H. Huang. The research projects will cover the following areas:
1. Chemical processes for removing heavy metals from various industrial wastewaters
2. Combined biological and chemical processes for degrading refractory organic pollutants in water; and
3. Nanomaterials and nanotechnologies for environmental remediation.
Ph.D. student in air quality study
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.
