DESCRIPTION

Environmental/chemical engineering/electrochemistry/physics: Development of Photocatalysts for Hydrogen Generation

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 photocatalytic process for hydrogen generation. The candidate should have a strong research background and publications in (1) photocatalytic process and electrochemistry, and (2) hydrogen storage and fuel cell development. The ideal candidate is also expected to have proficient communication skills in both written and spoken English.

Environmental/chemical engineering/chemistry/material science: Fate and Transport of Nanoparticles in Subsurface Systems and Their Risk Assessment

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.

Environmental/chemical engineering/chemistry/material science: Nano-photocatalysts for Removing PPCP/ED/POP and Photo-disinfection from Wastewater

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 superparamagnetic nano-photocatalysts for removing PPCP/ED/POP from wastewater.

Environmental Engineering

The Sonny Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Southern California is seeking one postdoctoral scholar in the area of environmental biotechnology. The researcher will work on funded projects under the direction of Dr. Adam Smith researching (1) antibiotic resistance in reuse waters generated by anaerobic treatment systems and (2) energy recovery from food waste using anaerobic membrane bioreactors.

Environmental Engineering & Tertiary Oil Recovery Program

A postdoctoral researcher position is available immediately at the University of Kansas in the Environmental Engineering Program or Tertiary Oil Recovery Program. The Environmental Engineering Program and Tertiary Oil Recovery Program at KU have established a collaborative research program to develop novel strategies to manage and treat wastewater generated by oil and gas production.

Clay Mineral Surface Geochemistry

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University seeks outstanding candidates for one or more postdoctoral (or more senior) research position investigating the nanogeochemistry of clay-water systems.  Successful candidate(s) will take the lead in applying molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to investigate the fundamental properties of argillaceous media (soils, sedimentary rocks).

Biological processes

The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of South Florida (Tampa) seeks a postdoctoral research scholar with expertise in biological nutrient removal (BNR) processes.  The Environmental Engineering program at USF currently has several projects related to biological nutrient removal for both point (mainstream and sidestream BNR) and non-point (stormwater management, onsite wastewater treatment) sources of nutrients.  Our current research is part of a portfolio of NSF funding and an EPA funded National Center for Reinventing Aging Infrastructure for Nutrient M

Sustainable Infrastructure and Cities

The Sustainable Healthy Cities Network seeks a Post-Doctoral Associate to conduct research in an exciting interdisciplinary program, focusing on Sustainable Infrastructure and Cities at the University of Minnesota. Particular focus areas are: areas of energy modeling, the energy-health nexus, and/or the food-energy-water nexus. The work takes place in the broader context of sustainable urban infrastructure systems, under the direction of Professor Anu Ramaswami.
