Environmental Science

Faculty in SUNY-ESF's Department of Environmental Studies and Syracuse University's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (Syracuse, NY) invite applications for a M.S./Ph.D. position in Environmental Science with an emphasis in socio-environmental systems, including citizen science, public engagement, and environmental chemistry of organic contaminants in aquatic ecosystems (e.g., lakes). The ideal candidate should possess B.S. and possibly M.S. degree(s) in environmental studies/sciences, chemistry, environmental engineering, or a related field(s).

PhD Assistantship in Chemical Engineering

1~2 PhD research/teaching assistant positions are available in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville ( Spring 2018 and Fall 2018.  The successful applicant is expected to conduct research in the area of heterogeneous catalysis application in wastewater treatment. The student will also receive training in other nanotechnology area including but not limited to atomic layer deposition and synchrotron x-ray techniques.

Biofilm Engineering, Environmental Microbiology

The Lauchnor Lab at Montana State University is seeking a motivated Ph.D. student to work on an NSF-funded research project aiming to characterize methane cycling biofilms in extreme environments, to start as soon as possible. The student will collaborate with an interdisciplinary team investigating environmental biofilm communities from Yellowstone National Park and other field sites, in addition to engineered biofilms in the laboratory.

Graduate student (PhD)

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the University of California, Los Angeles, is seeking PhD applicants to work under the guidance of Dr. Sanjay Mohanty ( on projects related to designing of resilient stormwater treatment systems to mitigate surface and groundwater pollution, and quantifying the effect of climate change on water quality. The research will involve geochemistry, environmental microbiology, and electrochemistry. 

Environmental (or Computer) Engineering

Access to safe water and sanitation and the sound management of freshwater ecosystems are essential to human health and to environmental sustainability and economic prosperity. The United Nations recently adopted the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, which includes a commitment to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. The vast amount of data available today can help UN member states achieve the targets for safe water and sanitation.

Environmental Engineering

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU) is currently seeking two graduate research assistants (both Ph.D. and M.S. are considered) to start in Spring 2018. Those positions will be focusing on novel membrane materials and processes for sustainability water supply, and ecological and health impacts of engineered nanomaterials. Students who are interested in performing cutting-edge research in those rising areas are encouraged to contact Dr.

Environmental Engineering

Four Ph.D. student positions with a strong focus on environmental engineering are available in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Alberta to work under the guidance of Dr. Mohamed Gamal El-Din on multidisciplinary research projects related to fundamental understanding of physico-chemical and biological water treatment processes.
