The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at North Carolina State University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to join a multidisciplinary research team focused on innovative nano-based solutions for resource recovery. The position is part of a newly formed Game Changing Research Initiative Program (GRIP) at NC State (https://research.ncsu.edu/rdo/funding/internal-funding/grip/) titled Water Sustainability through Nanotechnology.
The research group of Professor Irene M. C. Lo at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, would like to invite applications for a Post-doctoral Fellow position in the research area of fate and transport of nanoparticles (especially nano zero-valent iron particles) in soil and groundwater.
A position is available for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. One focus of the positon will be the modeling the adoption of solar panels, and their sustainability implications. Other sustainability research will also be conducted.
The research group of Professor Irene M. C. Lo at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, would like to invite applications for a Post-doctoral Fellow position in the research area of developing photocatalysts for photoelectrochemical process for pollutant photodegradation and hydrogen generation. The candidate should have a strong research background and publications in (1) photocatalytic process and photoelectrochemistry, and (2) hydrogen generation and storage development.
A position is available for a Postdoctoral Scientist in the Department of Environmental Sciences. The individual will conduct research on novel carbonaceous and other catalysts for environmental remediation. One focus will be on carbon adsorbent-catalysts for removing methyl bromide vapors from fumigation vent streams. Other reactions mediated by carbons will also be investigated. The individual is expected to undertake fundamental mechanistic studies, as well as contribute to engineering scale-up efforts for promising systems.
A postdoctoral research position in Chemical Engineering at the University of South Carolina is available for water purification using graphene oxide (GO)-based membranes. The preferred expertise includes flat sheet membrane preparation by various coating techniques (dip-coating, casting, interfacial polymerization etc.), membrane characterization (SEM, TEM, AFM, contact angle measurement, TGA, etc.), and membrane evaluation for water purification ranging from microfiltration, ultrafiltration, to nanofiltration and reverse osmosis.
A postdoctoral position is available immediately in statistical and computational modeling applied to infrastructure systems. The initial appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal based on progress and funding.
The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the University of California - Riverside, is seeking a postdoctoral scholar in the area of nanotechnology in agriculture. The researcher will work on a funded project that requires the synthesis, modification, and characterization of inorganic nanoparticles that will be used as anti-microbial agents in agricultural applications. The project is in collaboration with scientists from the Plant Pathology Department at UC Riverside. Applicants should have a Ph.D.
Applications are solicited for a postdoctoral fellow position in Water Desalination and Reuse Center (WDRC) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia. The postdoc will work as a member in Peiying Hong’s lab (Environmental Microbial Safety and Biotechnology Lab). The research in this group is motivated by the need to address water scarcity issues and focuses on activities related to two main areas, namely microbial safety and anaerobic biotechnologies.
