The Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering Program at Michigan State University is looking for qualified Ph.D. students to carry out research projects in the following areas: 1) Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment (QMRA) and risk management; and 2) Systems biology and dose-response modeling. We are a multidisciplinary group that includes chemical exposure modeling and biophysical processes and ecological modeling of chemicals and microbes in the environment.
The RESTORE Research Group at Western University is seeking PhD students to work on a Canadian Water Network project that will model and explore lead in water distribution systems. The project will combine laboratory investigations, pipe loop studies and field data with the development of an advanced water quality computer model. The computer model will be designed as decision support tool to enable municipalities to investigate causes of existing elevated lead levels and to design modifications at the water treatment plant that will reduce lead levels at the tap.
