Graduate Opportunity

    Master Study in Geoenvironmental Engineering

    Posted February 7, 2013

    The Project:
    Dr. Wonjae Chang in Civil and Geological Engineering is currently looking for two master students who want to participate in cutting-edge geoenvironmental engineering research. The research will focus on developing remediation technologies for engineered and natural environmental systems impacted by the extractions of natural resources in northern Canada. The selected applicants’ thesis research will be related to the development of self-sustaining, extended bioremediation systems for hydrocarbon-contaminated sites in cold climates. The research will also be related to the development of bio-active geological materials for the removal of inorganic and organic contaminants in oil-field process water and/or mine wastewater.

    The candidates are required to have a bachelor degree in engineering (civil, environmental, geological, chemical, or biological), microbiology, biotechnology, soil science, geological science, plant science or in other closely related environmental engineering or science programs.

    Starting Date: Immediately, May or September 2013.

    Stipend: $15,000-$18,000 per year.

    How to Apply:
    Send your CV, unofficial transcripts and contact infomration for three references to Dr. Wonjae Chang (, (306) 966-5373.

    Other Information:

    Graduate students in Dr. Chang’s lab will receive unique training in multidisciplinary research environments to experience the wide spectrum of geoenvironmental engineering from the physicochemical to the microbiological aspects.
