Available Positions

Graduate Research Assistantships and Postdoc opportunities are available for students seeking Ph.D. in Geoenvironmental or Environmental Engineering majors or students who have PhD in geotechnical, geoenvironmental or environmental focus areas. If you are interested in working on field-scale projects that involve computer modeling of landfills and use of sensors, email me your resume at mkhire@uncc.edu.

While not required, it will help if you have: (1) numerical modeling skills where you have modeled saturated/unsaturated flow or heat transfer through soils or solid and industrial waste; and/or (2) used dataloggers and sensors in a lab or field setting.
