Environmental Engineering/ Water treatment

We are looking for a PhD student for a new lab at Temple University dealing with Water/Wastewater treatment using membranes.

We are researching electrochemical reactions at the water-membrane interface for nutrients recovery, fouling and biofouling mitigation and CEC's removal using electrically conductive membranes based on carbon nanotubes and graphene. Additional research includes the influence and manipulation of feed spacers for biofouling and fouling prevention in spiral wound RO moduls.

Water-Energy Research

EMPOWER—Education Model Program on Water-Energy Research—is a National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT) interdisciplinary graduate training program at Syracuse University. Graduate students in this program conduct research at the “water-energy nexus,” which is a priority research area nationally.

Science, Technology, Environmental Policy

Graduate study and research fellowship opportunities (MS and PhD) available at the Science, Technology and Environmental Policy (STEP) program at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota.

We offer a vibrant interdisciplinary graduate program connecting science and engineering with sustainability system analysis and public policy to address some of society's most pressing challenges. 

Research areas and associated faculty members:

Environmental impact of solar energy

Dr. Anctil has an opening for two graduate research assistant interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering at Michigan State University. Dr. Anctil group uses proactive sustainability assessment to reduce the environmental impact of new technologies. Process-based life-cycle assessment (LCA) is used to identify critical steps in current technologies and guide greener alternatives by combining theoretical environmental assessment and experimental work.

Civil and Environmental Engineering

The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at Marquette University invites Masters and PhD applicants to join a project recently funded to develop optimal sensing and real-time control algorithms for stormwater management infrastructure. The project is funded through the NSF Water Equipment and Policy Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) located in Milwaukee, WI and presents a unique opportunity to collaborate with academic, water industry, and utility partners.

PhD Assistantship in Environmental Engineering (Water Reuse Processes and System-Scale Analysis)

The Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Southern California invites applicants for a Ph.D. assistantship in environmental engineering, with a particular emphasis on water reuse processes and system-scale analysis. The ideal candidate will have research experience at both process- and system-scale analysis. Applicants should have a BS in Environmental Engineering, Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, or equivalent.

PhD Position in Environmental Engineering (Disinfection and Natural Wastewater Treatment Systems)

The Silverman Laboratory (, at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering (Department of Civil and Urban Engineering), is inviting applications for PhD positions in Environmental Engineering, with particular focus on disinfection processes during wastewater t

Water Chemistry/Environmental Engineering

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Louisiana State University invites applications for Ph.D. assistantships in Environmental Engineering, starting Fall 2017. This opening will focus on unraveling the mysterious and underappreciated geochemical roles of Mn(III) species in subsurface environments and the implications of redox oscillation to the geochemical dynamics of subsurface contaminants. The student will conduct research in the lab of Dr. Zimeng Wang. Visit for more information about the research program.
