Environmental Chemistry

The Center for Environmental Health Engineering in the Biodesign Institute is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work in the area of urban metabolism metrology under the supervision of Prof. Rolf Halden, Director. The research will focus on analyzing chemical and biological agents of interest in urban environments using gas and liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry, high resolution mass spectrometry, and allied analytical techniques.

Full-time yearly contract based

One position for a full-time as a post-doctoral researcher supported by BK21+ project is available at the Department of Environment and Energy Engineering of Chonnam National University in South Korea. Applicant must have proper scientific and engineering backgrounds for conducting research in the field of solid waste management and bio-energy. The primary areas of research interest include biomass and organic waste conversion into valuable chemicals and transportation fuels, waste lignin depolymerization into fuels and heterogeneous catalysis for upgrading biofuels.

global sanitation and water reuse

The Membrane Biotechnology Lab (Civil & Environmental Engineering) at the University of South Florida is seeking two to three highly-motivated postdocs to work on a new global sanitation and water reuse project sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation under the Reinvent the Toilet initiative.  The candidate will assist in the development of transformative technologies for non-sewered sanitation, in particular, a patent-pending self-sustained, packaged, anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) platform (http://NEWgenerator.tumblr

Environmental Biotechnology/Microbiology

Two postdoctoral positions are available at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to work on research projects related to water and wastewater microbiomes.  The appointment is for one year with possible extension for additional 1-2 years subject to fund availability and satisfactory performance.
