Environmental engineering

Bioretention cells are urban stormwater control systems used to collect, infiltrate, and treat stormwater runoff. Their efficiency for the removal of trace organic contaminants is poorly understood. In this research, the successful candidate will conduct field and laboratory studies to better characterize the fate of selected trace organic contaminants. For that, a field tracer injection experiment will be conducted at a bioretention site in Ontario. Mesocosms will be set up to investigate the degradation potential and stable carbon isotope fractionation of selected chemicals. 


The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the National University of Singapore invites applications for postdoctoral/research fellow positions in the Sembcorp-NUS Corporate Laboratory focusing on research in zero liquid discharge.

Postdoctoral Researcher Position Open at UNC for Modeling PM2.5 from the Multiphase Chemistry of Biogenic VOC-derived Oxidation Products

The Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering (ESE) is one of the eight academic departments located in the Gillings School of Global Public Health. The department’s primary focus is on research and graduate education at the interface of the environment and human health, with an increasing emphasis on undergraduate education.

Environmental Engineering

South Dakota School of Mines & Technology is seeking a Research Scientist II in Civil & Environmental Engineering with a strong genome editing background and skills in bioelectrochemistry experiments. The BuG ReMeDEE (Building genome-to-phenome infrastructure for regulating methane in deep and extreme Environments) researcher will use microbial and molecular techniques to develop genome-to-phenome approaches for investigating extracellular electron transfer mechanisms of previously unexplored wild-type and recombinant methanotrophs.

Environmental Chemistry

A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in a collaborative project of the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering (CHEE) and the Department of Soil, Water and Environmental Science (SWES). The project will be led by Jim A Field (CHEE) in collaboration with Reyes Sierra-Alvarez (CHEE) and Jon Chorover (SWES). The selected candidate will conduct research on the chemical and photolytic degradation of organic compounds commonly used in semiconductor manufacturing.

Environmental Nanotechnology

  The research group of Professor Chuanhao Li at Department of Environmental Science and Engineering from Sun Yat-Sen University is seeking highly-qualified candidates for two postdoctoral researcher positions (or senior research scientist position). Candidates should have completed a Ph.D. degree in Environmental Engineering, Environmental Chemistry, Materials Science or closely related fields. Candidates with experiences in Environmental Nanotechnology is highly desired, but not required. The positions are available immediately and will be open until filled.

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.
