EPA Postdoctoral Fellowship in PFAS Water Remediation

Company: ORAU
Location: Cincinnati
Posted on: January 16, 2022

Job Description:

EPA Office/Lab and Location: A research opportunity is currently available at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Research and Development (ORD), Center for Environmental Solutions and Emergency Response (CESER), Land Remediation and Technology Division (LRTD) located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Research Project: This research project will develop new data and information on the effectiveness of different technologies and approaches for removing PFAS from the environment and managing PFAS and PFAS-containing materials. This information will inform decisions on drinking water and wastewater treatment, contaminated site cleanup and remediation, air emission controls, and end-of-life materials management. This information will also ensure that particular treatment and waste management technologies and approaches do not themselves lead to additional PFAS exposures, particularly in overburdened communities where treatment and waste management facilities are often located. EPA will continue efforts to develop approaches for characterizing PFAS in source waters, at contaminated sites, and near PFAS production and treatment/disposal facilities. This research effort will continue to evaluate and develop technologies for drinking water and wastewater treatment, contaminated site remediation, air emission controls, and destruction and disposal of PFAS-containing materials and waste streams. These efforts include conducting laboratory- and pilot-scale studies, which will inform the design of full-scale field studies done in partnership with facilities and states to evaluate real-world applications of different PFAS removal technologies and management approaches.

Learning Objectives: The research participant will be collaborating with scientific staff in CESER and potentially scientists from other EPA Labs, Centers or Offices, in training opportunities related to the evaluation of PFAS treatment technologies.

Under the guidance of a mentor, research activities may include:

Learning new innovative technologies for PFAS remediation

Operating, sampling, and data analysis of bench scale experiments related to PFAS treatment studies

Preparing samples for analysis, including preparing and developing a Quality assurance project plan

Participating in the operation of analytical instrumentation for PFAS analysis

Contributing to developing outputs, including presentations and technical manuscripts
