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.

Biogeochemical Cycles

The Pennsylvania State University is recruiting an exceptional postdoctoral research fellow to pursue cutting edge research in Biogeochemical Cycles. Position will be supported by the Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment (PSIEE) at Penn State, University Park, PA, and will include a highly competitive salary, funds for travel and supplies, and the opportunity to participate in an innovative future faculty development program.

Urban Water Environment

Postdoctoral-level research position(s) are open in the area of “urban water environment”, (UWE). Appointments will be made at the Assistant Specialist III level. UWE regards urban water quality, including surface waters, groundwater, and reclaimed water. The initial research foci include origins, fates, and attenuation of mixed pollution (e.g. nutrients, metals, micropollutants, and pathogens) associated with discharges that migrate through soil, with the potential for affecting groundwater and surface waters.

Membrane processes: oil-water separation

We are seeking a postdoctoral research associate to work on a federally-funded interdisciplinary research project focusing on the development of new membranes and membrane processes for oil-water separation. Research topics include materials design of affinity separation membranes, design and testing of dynamic (rotational) membrane separation systems, and evaluation of novel membranes in standalone and hybrid separation processes.


The University at Buffalo Hydrogeochemistry group seeks an enthusiastic post-doctoral researcher to participate in the following multi-institutional projects:

• an NSF-sponsored project to investigate the behavior of CFCs in low-carbon content sedimentary aquifers.
• A DoD/SERDP funded project to evaluate the effect of nonlinear and rate limited chlorinated solvent desorption on persistence, remediation resistance, and concentration rebound in contaminated sedimentary aquifers.

Opening for a Post-doctoral Researcher in Geochemistry - CO2 Sequestration - LIBS


The National Energy Technology Laboratory (US DOE-NETL) and the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University is seeking to fill an opening for a post-doctoral researcher in CO2 Sequestration within the Environmental Engineering & Science Management group of CMU.

Dow Sustainability Fellows Program

University of Michigan Dow Sustainability Fellows Program The Dow Sustainability Fellows Program is designed to create a new generation of sustainability scholars who understand the necessity of collaborating across disciplines and sectors to address and solve complex sustainability challenges. With this in mind, the program is seeking proposals from postdoctoral scholars committed to finding interdisciplinary, actionable, and meaningful sustainability solutions on local-to-global scales.

Advanced oxidation/membrane treatment

A postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Clarkson University is sought to work on an U.S. EPA funded project aimed at optimizing and evaluating an advanced water treatment technology that combines membrane technology with an advanced oxidation process (AOP). The project will involve optimizing a novel laboratory-scale treatment system, employing state of the art analytical equipment for the quantification of emerging contaminants, and evaluating the treatment process on surface water and wastewater matrices. A candidate with Ph.D.
