Biotransformation of Emerging Contaminants

Dr. Natalie Cápiro’s laboratory ( at Auburn University in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering invites applicants for a postdoctoral position beginning late spring or summer 2021. The position will focus on understanding the natural attenuation mechanisms and biotransformation pathways of various organic contaminants of emerging concern (e.g., per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances), and assessing biological systems in a treatment train approach for remediation of complex contaminant mixtures.

Postdoc in CO2 sequestration

Dr. Lauren Beckingham’s ( Water-Rock Interactions in Subsurface Energy Systems (WRISES) environmental engineering group in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Auburn University invites applications for a postdoctoral position beginning in summer 2021. This group focuses on advancing fundamental knowledge of fate and transport processes in environmental systems and developing sustainable solutions to climate change and environmental problems at the energy-water nexus.

Electrospun Membrane Development

The Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering at the University of Wyoming has an opening for a post-doctoral position with an emphasis on membrane development using electrospinning and electrospraying techniques. Project goals center on developing “smart” membranes for selective resource recovery from aqueous mixtures, like produced water, and for non-pressure driven membrane systems (FO, MD). The initial focus of the project will be on hydrocarbon recovery from produced water and the synthesis of superhydrophilic membranes.

Environmental Biotechnology

A postdoctoral position is available at the Water Desalination and Reuse Center (WDRC) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) to work on a multidisciplinary research project related to the application of anaerobic fermentation bioreactor for organic waste treatment with focus on bioprocess engineering, reactor design and microbial ecology.

Biodegradation of environmental plastic pollution

The Duhaime Lab ( at the University of Michigan is hiring a postdoc to join a team working to understand the fate of plastic pollution in the environment. The funded project will combine microbial ecology, culturing, spectroscopy and omics techniques to identify biodegrading microbes and biodegradation mechanisms and rates in the environment. This work involves laboratory and field work and is a collaboration with both industry and chemists.
