Environmental Biotechnology

A post-doc position is available at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) to work on a joint research project between UIUC and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) on water reclamation. We are looking for highly motivated candidates with strong background in working with microbial biofilms. The candidate should have excellent experience in growing biofilms and characterizing biofilms using different analytical and microbiological tools.

Photochemistry and photocatalysis

The Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology Research Group at the University of Notre Dame ( is seeking candidates for a Postdoctoral Fellow position. The research focus of this position is to investigate the conversion of carbon dioxide to fuel chemicals under solar irradiation. The fellow is expected to design and construct an experimental apparatus and perform evaluation on novel metal-oxide-carbon nanocomposite catalysts.

Environmental chemistry and chemometrics

POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER POSITION: A postdoc position is available immediately for  research projects related to the volatile compounds produced by bacterial pathogens. Specifically, the project will require the collection and processing of large datasets (volatile metabolomes) in our quest to both apply our work to diagnostic goals and also answer fundamental questions about cellular signaling through the volatile phase.

Environmental/Biomedical Engineering or related field

A postdoctoral researcher position is available in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder to study the health effects of particulate matter, including engineered nanoparticles. Applicants should have background in one or two of the following areas: Environmental, Biomedical or Biochemical Engineering, Biochemistry, Cell Biology or any other closely related field. The ideal candidate will have cell culture experience and the use of analytical instrumentation (electrophoresis, microscopy, cytometry).

Environmental, Microbiological, Surface Phenomena Interaction

A postdoctoral research position is available to conduct research on molecular microbiology, surface phenomena interaction, andor advanced oxidation of oil sands process-affected water. The successful candidate must be able to operate and maintain analytical instruments and toxicological tools to study the effectiveness of advanced treatment processes for the remediation of oil sands process-affected water. This position is part of a five year NSERC-Industrial Research Chair Program in Oil Sands Process-Affected Water Treatment. Applicants should hold a Ph.D.

Corrosion and fouling control

The Center for Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (CSIS) at University of Colorado Denver is seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar position. The research focus of this position is to investigate corrosion and fouling mechanisms and prevention strategies. Candidates are expected to have backgrounds in corrosion chemistry, microbiology, and reactor development. Experience with Multichannel Electrode Array or LabView/MatLab programming are desired. The position is available immediately and compensations are highly competitive.

Dispersant/oil/sediment interactions and oil weathering

Dr. Don Zhao’s group in the Civil Engineering Department at Auburn University is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher or a visiting research scholar for an anticipated project on dispersant/oil/sediment interactions and effects of dispersants on weathering of oil. The candidate is expected to play the leadership role in carrying out batch and column experiments, analyzing and interpreting experimental data, and publishing the results in high-quality peer-reviewed journals.
