Environmental Engineering

The RESTORE Research Group in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Western University is seeking a post-doctoral research associate to conduct research on a two-year project evaluating the performance of different road salts, including two new proprietary salts, in terms of their environmental impact and ice-melting performance. This is achieved by laboratory and field tests on the performance of salts in various settings (e.g., sidewalks, parking lots, streets) along with the behaviour and impacts of these salts as they interact with the adjacent environment.
