Dear friends,

A Ph.D. research assistant (RA) position is available to work with the Dr. Wen Zhang’s research group at NJIT with research areas of (1) Material characterization at nanoscale using hybrid atomic force microscope (AFM); (2) Environmental behavior and interfacial processes for nanomaterials; (3) Novel catalytic processes for harnessing renewable energy and pollutant degradation; (4) Reactive electromagnetic induction membrane separation and distillation systems; (5) Catalytically reactive membrane filtration for emerging contaminant removal. More details are available at Zhang’s website: www.wenresearch.com. The RA student will work one of the projects below:

(1) Interfacially Engineered Membranes for Simultaneous Microwave Catalysis and Liquid Filtration with funding support from US Bureau of Water Reclamation and the US National Science Foundation (NSF).

(2) Colloidal chemistry and applications of nanobubble technologies funded by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

(3) Electrochemically reactive water disinfection process funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF).

The candidate should have research experiences in environmental or chemical engineering, material and colloidal science. Most importantly, a record of high-quality publications, competent writing skill and critical thinking are considered critical. The position is available immediately with an official start date of January 2021. The appointment will begin as soon as the student can arrive at NJIT for immediate research work, which will be compensated.
