This is a great example of opportunities that are being created in the area of green chemistry. Alumni and current students should find this both interesting an informative.

Post-Doctoral Position in Sustainable Chemistry

A postdoctoral research project in the area of sustainable chemistry is available at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL) in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Sustainable Chemistry Program is focused on the integration of principles which define green chemistry and green engineering to develop chemical technologies that offer increased levels of sustainability when compared to an existing technology. The scope of this in-house research project is to expand the development and implementation of new methods or the syntheses of chemicals, ranging from specialty to commodity. The goal of the program is to demonstrate the production of chemicals with a minimized environmental and physical footprint with an emphasis towards implementation in an industrial setting. Applicants should have received a doctoral degree in chemistry, chemical engineering or a related discipline within five years of the starting date, or completion of all requirements for the degree should be expected prior to the starting date.
