Analytical Chemistry

One postdoctoral fellow position in environmental analytical chemistry is available in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Alberta under the supervision of Prof. Mohamed Gamal El-Din. The selected applicant will work on multidisciplinary research projects related to analytical chemistry for applications in environmental sciences and wastewater treatment, including oil & gas process water and municipal wastewater. The eligible applicant should have completed the Ph.D.

Environmental Engineering and Microbial Ecology

Description: The University of Washington invites applications for one postdoctoral scholar positions to study how climate change stressors (sea-level rise and drought events) impact the greenhouse gas emissions of microbial wetland communities.  The project will require experience in working with anaerobic and aerobic cultures and to study the microbial physiology and ecology and their meta-genomic capacities. Therefore, we are looking for candidates with knowledge in culture-based techniques and with familiarity with recent advances in genetic and metabolite analyses.

Pilot scale studies on vacuum-driven anaerobic digestion (IntensiCarb Technology)

Project Outline

A patent-pending vacuum-driven technology has been developed by the industrial partners involved in this project. This technology, called IntensiCarb, has as main goal intensifying biosolids processing with simultaneous resource recovery. A pilot-scale system has been commissioned and installed at Greenway WWTP in London, ON. The appointed post-doc scientist will be responsible for conducting experimental and modeling studies using the existing systems and the SUMO software.

Water Quality Modeling/Environmental Engineering

Position Summary: The Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Soil and Water Resources Engineering area. The research team members have unique expertise in the fields of water quality and agronomy. The graduate research will focus in agricultural water quality modeling and monitoring.

Postdoctoral research associate - Water resources engineering

The Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering at Iowa State University is seeking candidates for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in Water Resources Engineering. The postdoc researcher will work with Drs. Chris Rehmann and Kaoru Ikuma, and contribute to an EPA-funded research project on building community resilience against wastewater contamination risks posed by flooding. The main duties include computational modeling of contaminant transport in inland and coastal waters, field sampling, water quality measurements, and dissemination of results.

Environmental Chemistry/Rare earth element recovery

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Wayne State University ( in Detroit, MI starting in Fall 2021 (can start immediately or after graduation for current PhD students graduating in Fall 2021).  The successful applicant will be expected to conduct research in a variety of areas related to applied surface chemistry and/or urban water pollution and sustainability issues related to environmental engineering.  Our team is highly involved in all aspects of the waste-to-resource fi
