MOF materials

The Water Engineering Innovation (WEI) Lab at Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering, Aarhus University, invites applications for an 18-month postdoc position offering applicants an exciting opportunity to join a new research project on MOF-enhanced CO2 capture. The starting date is October 1, 2022, or as soon as possible.

Job description

This project aims to fabricate metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for selective CO2 capture and measurement. The key tasks in this project will be:

PFAS adsorption and removal by GAC and IEX

We are seeking a postdoc with experience in adsorption (GAC, PAC, IEX) and analytical analysis (LC-MS-MS) for a project addressing the treatment of groundwater contaminated by PFAS (PFOS, PFOA, PFBS, PFBA, etc).

Additionally developed adsorbers will also be evaluated. 

This project is a collaboration with the Israeli water authority and a local water company and includes lab work and pilot testing of selected adsorbers.

The position is at the Zukerberg institute for water research (ZIWR) at Ben Gurion University (Sde Boker campus) - ISRAEL

Global Health

The Pickering lab ( is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on a collaborative project with The Broad Institute to investigate the effect of drinking water treatment on bacterial strain sharing among Kenyan children. This research will leverage a unique opportunity to investigate the effects of community-wide chlorinated drinking water treatment across urban and rural communities to provide novel insight into the scope of drinking water treatment infrastructure that is needed to protect young children’s health in low-income settings.

Geochemistry, subsurface energy systems

Dr. Lauren Beckingham’s ( Water-Rock Interactions in Subsurface Energy Systems (WRISES) environmental engineering group in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Auburn University invites applications for postdoctoral researcher positions beginning in fall 2022. This group focuses on advancing fundamental knowledge of fate and transport processes in environmental systems and developing sustainable solutions to climate change and environmental problems at the energy-water nexus.

Environmental Engineering, Cell Biology, Environmental Toxicology

About the project:

We have engineered an in vitro 3-Dimensional (3D) cell culture integrated into a flow-cell bioreactor to conduct the toxicological assessment of environmental poly aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) mixtures that can be found in food. The proposed bioreactor system will mimic the intestinal tract, where nutrients and potential contaminants are absorbed by cells.
