Phosphorus recycling and recovery

Up to two graduate research assistant positions are available in the University of Oklahoma School of Civil Engineering and Environmental Science.  Successful applicants will pursue research on phosphorus recovery and recycling using agricultural wastes.  Because there are no conceivable substitutes for phosphorus in food production, and because phosphorus reserves are limited, recycling and recovery efforts are critical for this resource.  This project will investigate and identify environmentally sustainable processes for recovering phosphorus from animal wastewaters using materials deriv

Environmental Engineering - Membrane

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU) is currently seeking 1-2 graduate research assistants (Ph.D. students are preferred, although M.S. students are considered) to start in Fall 2018. The students will have the opportunity of working on developing novel membrane materials and processes for sustainable water supply at the water-energy-health nexus.

Environmental engineering/chemistry

The Environmental Engineering Program at the University of Nevada-Reno is seeking one Ph.D. student to work with Dr. Yu Yang on the projects of environmental engineering/chemistry beginning Fall 2018. Ongoing projects in Yu Yang’s lab include application of reclaimed water for agriculture, microbial degradation and plant uptake of carbon nanotube, transformation and stability of organic carbon in redox reactions, and organic matter-mediated degradation of emerging organohalides.

Environmental Engineering

The Environmental Biotechnology Laboratory at the Kansas State University ( is seeking a motivated PhD student to join our research team. Our overarching research goal is to promote the development of sustainable biotechnologies for Water-Energy-Food-Climate nexus, by examining diverse catabolic activities of microbes, and by harnessing their activities for engineering applications.

Environmental Engineering (Environmental Sustainability)

Applications for two graduate research assistant positions at the PhD level are sought in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Both students will utilize tools such as life cycle assessment to determine the environmental impacts of products and processes throughout their lifetime, and evaluate the environmental impacts of new and novel technologies. One of the positions will focus on nanotechnology, and its sustainability implications. While the other position will focus on sustainable food production.

Environmental Engineering - Environmental Processes

The Environmental Processes (EP) research focus area of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University invites applications for fully-funded M.S./Ph.D. and Ph.D. studies beginning in the 2018/2019 academic year. Cornell offers graduate students the opportunity to individualize their course of study with a committee of faculty members to select the most important courses to complement their research.

Multiple PhD and MS Assistantships in Urban Stormwater

The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at Marquette University invites PhD and Masters applicants to join Dr. Walter McDonald ( and Dr. Anthony Parolari ( on a number of recently funded projects related to real-time control of stormwater systems and monitoring of green stormwater infrastructure. Project descriptions are provided below.
