Subject: Graduate Training Opportunities

Positions are available for 3 qualified graduate students to work in the 
area of wastewater engineering and sludge management.  The positions will 
be suited to individuals with backgrounds in chemical or civil 
engineering or applied microbiology.  An interest in one of the 
following is desirable: colloid and analytical chemistry; microbiological
processes; STEM and confocal microscopy; and environmental engineering.   
The project "Microbial Floc Architecture: Implications for the behaviour 
of flocs and fate of contaminants in wastewater systems" is funded by the 
NSERC Strategic Grants Program and is being led by Prof. Steven N. Liss.  
The positions are tenable in either Chemical or Civil Engineering at the 
University of Toronto.  The project involves the collaboration with
G.G. Leppard and I.G. Droppo at the Canadian Centre for Inland Waters,
Environment Canada, Burlington, Ontario.

Two Ph.D. Positions:

1. Investigation of the chemical interactions between different types of 
flocs and constituents with chemical contaminant compounds in relation to 
structure and floc properties.

2. Studies on the factors influencing floc development and flocculation 
and the establishment of criteria used in floc design.

On M.A.Sc. Position:

3. Comprehensive analysis and comparison of flocs from different 
wastewater treatment systems with respect to size, porosity, gross 
morphology, structure and activity.
