Environmental Engineering - Stormwater Bioretention

Wednesday, January 6, 2016
Job Type: 
Job Rank: 
MASc and PhD students
Job Institution: 
University of Toronto
Job Description: 

Urban areas are in need of new “green” infrastructures. Bioretention cells are a type of stormwater infiltration systems to enable Low Impact Development. These cells are designed for the rapid infiltration of stormwater and buffering of peak flows, and also to reduce contaminant loadings to receiving surface waters.

We are three researchers at the University of Toronto, working with public agencies and private companies. We are looking for 6 graduate students to fill in positions in the field of bioretention cell treatment processes and hydrologic functioning. Details for each position can be found at the link below:


Students can start the positions in May or September 2016.
