Available Positions

Want to join our lab?

Graduate Students
If you are potentially interested in a Master or PhD position in our lab, you first need to apply to the graduate program of either of the following two departments: Civil Engineering or Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry. Please, mention my name in your statement of intent.

Undergraduate Students
Undergrads are always welcome to join and participate in several aspects of our on-going research! If you are interested, please, send me an email and a copy of your CV and transcripts.

One position available:
Bioretention cells are urban stormwater control systems used to collect, infiltrate, and treat stormwater runoff. Their efficiency for the removal of trace organic contaminants is poorly understood. In this research, the successful candidate will conduct field and laboratory studies to better characterize the fate of selected trace organic contaminants. For that, a field tracer injection experiment will be conducted at a bioretention site in Ontario. Mesocosms will be set up to investigate the degradation potential and stable carbon isotope fractionation of selected chemicals.

The candidates should have experience in at least one of the following areas: environmental engineering, analytical chemistry, stable isotope chemistry, passive water treatment systems, hydrology, or water quality improvement.

Interested applicants should send a CV including a list of publications and the name of three referees to Prof Elodie Passeport at Elodie.passeport@utoronto.ca. To be sure to be considered for the position, applications should be received by January 31st, 2018.
