Postdoc Associate in Innovative and Resilient Water Reclamation Technologies
A postdoctoral associate position is immediately available in Dr. Yang Deng’s Environmental Resilience, Innovation, and Sustainability Engineering (E-RISE) Group (www.montclair.edu/~dengy) for a multi-year federally funded project. This cross-disciplinary research aims to develop design principles of innovative ferrate-based water reuse technologies for agricultural sustainability and resilience.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in environmental engineering, chemical engineering, chemistry, or related fields. Strong communication (oral and written English) skills and ability to work both independently and in a collaborative environment are required. Desired qualifications include:
1) demonstrated knowledge and expertise in chemical oxidation technologies and/or iron chemistry;
2) skills in traditional and advanced water quality analytical techniques (e.g., LC/MS/MS and ICP-MS);
3) experience in collaboration with scholars from other domains;
4) experience in mentoring graduate and undergraduate students.
Initial appointment will be one year. Employment extension relies on performance (the overall appointment length can be up to 4 years). Review will begin immediately and continue until position is filled. Interested individuals are encouraged to submit applications to Dr. Yang Deng (firstname.lastname@example.org). The application should include cover letter, CV, contact information of three references, and a representative publication.
