Environmental Engineering

Every year the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering offer approximately 40 Dean’s Fellowships to the best new domestic Ph.D. students. It is a prestigious honor and offers significant financial support throughout your doctoral program. Applicants must be a first-year Ph.D. student, U.S. citizen or permanent resident, have a GPA of 3.6 or better and a high GRE score along with a passion for research.
 

Membranes/Electrochemistry

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Villanova University seeks candidates for a PhD Research Assistantship for an NSF funded project focusing on the development of reactive electrochemical membranes for water purification. The ideal candidate will possess a M.S. in Environmental or Chemical Engineering, and prior experience in electrochemistry, membrane processes, and surface characterization. Candidates holding a B.S. or M.S. in related fields will also be considered.

Watershed Hydrology: Rainfall, Runoff, Erosion, Bayesian Statistical Methods

A Graduate Research Assistantship for M.S. in Engineering is available under USDA Federal Grant to study hydrologic influences on soil organic carbon loss monitoring from erosion. PVAMU, as the lead institution in collaboration with Texas A&M University and University of Houston, is using state-of-the art tools in isotope biogeochemistry in soil organic carbon loss monitoring within a hydrologic framework to introduce and expand research in this area.

Environmental Fluid Mechanics

*** Ph.D. Assistantships/Fellowships in Environmental Fluid Mechanics at the University at Buffalo, the State University of New York ***

 

This PhD fellowship resides in experimental fluid mechanics, with a focus on the influence of hydrodynamics on biological and ecological systems. This work will help facilitate the management of our natural waterways through an understanding of the complex relationships between man-made structures, fluid mechanics, and the plant and animal communities that inhabit those natural waterways.

Environmental Engineering

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Missouri-Columbia is seeking motivated research assistants (Ph.D. level) to work in environmental engineering and biotechnology. Research areas include anaerobic digestion, wastewater treatment, biological nutrient removal and recovery, environmental nanotechnology and bioelectrochemistry. The research will involve working in collaboration with an interdisciplinary team of researchers on campus.

Environmental Microbiology

I am seeking candidates for a PhD Research Assistantship focusing on the development of molecular assays to detect organisms important to bioremediation. The ideal candidate will possess a M.S. in Environmental or Chemical Engineering, and prior experience in microbiology and molecular techniques. Candidates holding a M.S. in related fields will also be considered. The selected applicant will be funded with a competitive stipend, benefits, and travel support to attend professional conferences.

Engineering Research at CERL (Champaign, IL)

Project Description

This appointment includes, but is not limited to, the following:

- Collection and analysis of laboratory data relating to water purification by reverse osmosis.

- Emphasis on effects of salinity, pretreatment, and fouling on sustained water flux.

-Membrane design software will be used to design an RO module with optimal characteristics for an intended application.

About CERL

Environmental Resources Engineering

I am looking for one or two PhD or MS students to start from the fall 2012 or spring 2013 semester. One student will perform laboratory tests on struvite precipitation and crystallization in the first year, and take a lead in the second year on-farm demonstration of struvite recovery from anaerobically digested dairy manure. Experience with SEM-EDX is desirable, but not required. Experience with or background to learn CFD (Fluent 3D) is desirable if ultimately for a PhD degree.

Reactive Electrochemical Membranes for Water Purification
