The University of Washington invites applications for two postdoctoral scholar positions for two interdisciplinary projects in environmental engineering and environmental science.  The project will involve the application of anaerobic and aerobic ammonium oxidation in addition to comammox. We are seeking candidates in a) reactor technology/process and c) microbial ecology / physiology. Working familiarity with recent advances in genetic and metabolite analyses is desirable but not required.

Candidates from Chemical, Environmental or Bioprocess Engineering, or Environmental Microbiology are encouraged to apply.  Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until all positions are filled.  The position is available as early as July 2019, for a duration of one year, with opportunity for a second year depending on satisfactory progress and funding availability.  To apply, send an email to and with a one-page cover letter, a CV, a list of at three references, and copies of two relevant publications combined into one PDF file.
