The Environmental Chemistry Group in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Syracuse University is recruiting one to two PhD students in Environmental Engineering to begin in Spring or Fall 2023. The students will be supported by NSF- and state-funded projects focusing on the application of high-resolution mass spectrometry to study the occurrence and fate of organic micropollutants in environmental systems. The students will have opportunities to collaborate with investigators from environmental NGOs and citizen groups and present research at national and international conferences. The ideal candidates should possess an M.S. degree in environmental engineering, chemistry, or a related engineering/science field.
