We are seeking a highly motivated and talented post-doctoral scholar to join our research team studying the fate and transport of plastics in estuarine environments. This is a unique opportunity to work at the forefront of environmental research, contributing to a critical issue with global implications. You will participate in cutting-edge research projects, collaborate with interdisciplinary experts, and gain valuable experience in publishing scientific findings.


  • Conduct research on the modeling of plastic transport and accumulation in estuaries, using numerical models, statistical analysis, and other relevant techniques.
  • Develop and refine models to predict the fate and impact of plastics on estuarine ecosystems.
  • Analyze and interpret data from field and laboratory studies related to estuarine plastics.
  • Prepare and publish research findings in peer-reviewed journals and present them at conferences.
  • Contribute to grant proposals and funding applications.
  • Collaborate with faculty, researchers, and students across disciplines.
  • Participate in outreach and education activities related to plastic pollution.


  • Ph.D. in Oceanography, Environmental Science, Engineering, Mathematics, or a closely related field with a strong focus on modeling and/or coastal processes.
  • Expertise in numerical modeling, data analysis, and scientific computing.
  • Experience with estuarine and coastal systems is highly desirable.
  • Demonstrated ability to publish in peer-reviewed journals and present research findings effectively.
  • Strong communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills.
  • Passion for environmental research and addressing plastic pollution.
