Emissions data collection and analysis

Colorado State University is looking for an experimentalist with strong analytical instrumentation skills to lead the collection and analysis of the field data for a major methane emissions study.   The advent and success of unconventional techniques for the extraction of natural gas presents a great opportunity to increase national energy security and lower the carbon footprint of our energy sector, if done correctly. Given the potency of methane (CH4) as a greenhouse gas, even small leak rates contribute to accelerated rates of climate change.

Environmental/Water/Chemical Engineering

A postdoctoral research position is available to conduct research in the field of membrane processes for water desalination and reclamation, and for energy recovery. The research projects are supported by DOE and NSF and are in partnership with industry and other universities. The research projects involve design, modeling, and fabrication of thermal and membrane processes and systems, followed by investigation, improvement, and optimization of process/system performance.

Evaluating urban stormwater Best Management Practice

Virginia Tech is inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Associate position to assist a multidisciplinary team whose mission is to evaluate manufactured treatment devices (MTDs) for the control of nutrients and sediment in urban runoff. MTDs are structural stormwater best management practices (BMPs) that may be used in portions of sites, often when space is limited. MTDs implement innovative technologies to achieve potentially greater treatment while reducing spatial requirements, however verifying their performance is challenging.

Alternative fuels

Illinois Sustainable Technology Center

Prairie Research Institute

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign


The Illinois Sustainable Technology Center is seeking one full-time postdoctoral research associate to lead investigations on conversion of low-value waste plastic into alternative fuels and lubricant oil basestocks using thermal processes. 

Soil and Groundwater (Bio)geochemistry

The Environmental Research Group at Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) Gangneung invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher. The projects will focus on biogeochemical, mineralogical, and physical processes controlling release, transport and attenuation of dissolved metals, metalloids, nutrients, and radionuclides at near surface radioactive waste disposal facilities. The research includes detailed field investigations, laboratory studies, and development of mathematical models to predict the complex geochemical behavior of these systems.

Indoor Bioaerosol Dynamics

We are recruiting a postdoctoral scholar for a project, funded by the Alfred P. Sloan foundation, that aims to better understand bioaerosol dynamics in neonatal healthcare settings.  The broad goal of the research is to better understand the role of the indoor environment in neonatal intensive care units (NICU) as it influences the microbial colonization of the guts of premature infants.  This postdoctoral appointment focuses on the role of indoor air in the NICU as a transmission vehicle for colonizing microbes.
