Postdoctoral Scholar with Professor Adeyemi Adeleye

$49,188-$59,736 *
Will remain open until filled

The UC Irvine Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to work in the area of pollution treatment using emerging technologies or advances in conventional treatment technologies. The target pollutants for this project are per- and polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) and pharmaceuticals. We are interested in real-world applications of emerging water/wastewater treatment and environmental remediation techniques such as nanotechnology, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), membranes, etc.

Postdoctoral Scholar with Professor Kristen Davis

$49,188 - $51,324

The Coastal Dynamics Laboratory at UC Irvine is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to investigate the dynamics of nonlinear internal waves. Internal waves play an important role in shaping environmental variability in coastal ecosystems globally.  Nonlinear internal waves drive cross-shelf transport and exchange of heat, nutrients, sediments and pollutants, and have been found to directly influence the thermal resilience and productivity of nearshore ecosystems such as coral reefs and kelp forests.

Lecturer, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

$6,020 - $7,335 per course (commensurate with experience)

The UC Irvine Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has occasional need for temporary lecturers in the following undergraduate and graduate areas: CAD, land measurements, groundwater hydrology and contaminant transport, and water and wastewater treatment. An ability to teach several different analysis and design courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels is sought.

Tenured/Tenure-track Faculty Position in Hydrologic Sciences and Engineering

Will remain open until filled

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Irvine is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to work in coastal sediment dynamics in support of research addressing the future of coastal wetlands and beaches in southern California, considering the changing climate and watershed conditions. We are interested in advancing models that account for human influences such as dredging, beach nourishment, thin layer augmentation of wetlands, and watershed controls alongside natural processes for which models are quite mature.
