Tennessee Tech School of Agriculture Graduate Assistantship - Precision Agriculture Description: Dr. Abdul Momin in the School of Agriculture at Tennessee Tech University is recruiting a graduate student to work on geo-spatial technologies coupled with artificial intelligence for precision agriculture beginning in either Spring, Summer, or Fall 2024 semester. Students with agricultural engineering background and experience on application of geo-spatial technologies and machine learning are especially encouraged to apply.  Graduate assistantships are available on a competitive basis through the Environmental Sciences-Agriculture PhD program. Deadline for Fall 2024: 5/1/24 for international applicants; 6/1/24 for domestic applicants


DOD Sustainable Engineering – USACE Environmental Laboratory Description: Under the guidance of a mentor, you will research projects focused on various aspects of life-cycle assessment (LCA) methodology and modeling.  Projects will focus on Environmental Life-Cycle Assessment issues to assess the environmental impacts of both current and new and emerging materials. Specific projects include the development of engineered technologies for risk mitigation and management of per/polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) on army installations and the identification and development of PFAS-free chemical formulations. You will have an opportunity to write proposals, publications, technical reports and presentations.
DOD Environmental DNA (eDNA) and Molecular Ecology - USACE Environmental Laboratory (location varies) Description: Under the guidance of a mentor, you will be part of a team of scientists focused on the use of molecular genetics to better study, monitor, and manage environmental systems. Research ranges from population genetics to molecular scatology,  but may expand as opportunities arise. Studies based on environmental DNA (eDNA), environmental RNA (eRNA), including eDNA metabarcoding and eRNA sequencing, are important areas of research and development. The development of eDNA- or eRNA-based equivalents to community biological indices for terrestrial and aquatic systems, detection tools for animal and plant hazards in rugged environments, and capabilities for determining the sources of soil or water samples are all likely project areas. As a team, we are also interested in the merging of eDNA and eRNA capabilities with unmanned, robotic, mobile, and/or autonomous platforms.

We study cutting-edge solutions-oriented climate and energy problems in the hope to protect public health and the environment. Our research doesn’t end at publication—we embrace the scientist as a spokesperson role and level with the public through press releases/briefings and active engagement with diverse stakeholders and policymakers. We host a suite of in-house, research-grade trace gas analysis capabilities that have been deployed all over the world to better understand the climate and health pollutant emissions from gas-fired residential appliances, commercial kitchens, direct air capture facilities, and more. Salary: $72,000 - $95,000
University of Cincinnati Post Doc Fellow, Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering in Cincinnati, OH Description: The extensive global utilization of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) across several decades has led to their profound impact on aquatic environments. Developing innovative approaches for effectively eliminating PFAS presents a significant challenge and an opportunity to enhance our comprehension of the underlying chemistry involved in degrading these distinctive compounds. The Chae group at the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, University of Cincinnati, is actively seeking a motivated and collaborative post-doctoral scholar to undertake the following responsibilities: 1) Synthesizing FeSO3 redox materials, 2) Assessing these materials' characteristics and gauging their technological efficacy, 3) Conducting a comprehensive analysis of PFAS transformation byproducts utilizing cutting-edge mass spectrometry techniques, and 4) Validating the effectiveness of the integrated treatment system using samples from groundwater, retentate water from membranes, water from ion exchange resin regeneration, and aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF)-impacted waters. Posting Date: 4/24/24
