Tenure Track Group Leader in Environmental (Bio)macromolecular Chemistry

Water Resources Engineering

The Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at Purdue has an opening for a postdoctoral research associate.  The research associate will conduct water resources modeling studies and will also assist with contaminant fate and transport field- and laboratory-based studies.  The candidate will be expected to build and maintain a publication record, assist with grant writing, be involved in collaborations with associated faculty within and outside the department as needed, and provide technical assistance to students working within the research group.

Soil Erosion/dust emissions

Postdoctoral Opportunity in Earth and Environmental Science, Temple University

The Department of Earth and Environmental Science at Temple University (PA, USA) is seeking a full-term Postdoctoral Research Associate interested in the general area of soil erosion - ecosystem interactions.

Materials for Water Purification and Desalination

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Vanderbilt University is seeking highly qualified candidates for a postdoctoral position for developing novel materials for water purification and desalination. The position involves development of high performance materials for membrane-based and electrochemical separations. Other duties of the position include providing assistance in graduate student supervising, proposal writing, and other academic activities that are beneficial to the candidate's career development.

Environmental Chemistry/Geochemistry

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Nevada (Reno) is seeking a full-time postdoctoral researcher to work with Dr. Yu Yang ( The project, supported by the Department of Energy, is to investigate the biogeochemical stability of iron-bound organic carbon under aerobic-anaerobic transitions. This is a multi-institute collaborative project, including collaborators at University of Wisconsin-Madison, Desert Research Institute, Oak Ridge National Lab and Lawrence Livermore National Lab.

Water-rock Interfacial Chemistry

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan seeks outstanding candidates for a postdoctoral research position investigating mineral-water interfacial processes. The candidate would lead efforts to characterize alterations in shale wettability after contact with hydraulic fracturing fluids. This project is motivated by a need to better understand the fate of residual completion waters in fractured shale reservoirs and its impact on natural gas production.
