Job Summary

A post-doctoral research scholar position is available in the Dept. of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan (USA), under the supervision of Prof. Herek Clack for the conduct of research in either of two areas:  1) bioaerosols or 2) non-thermal plasmas.

Who We Are

Michigan Engineering’s vision is to be the world’s preeminent college of engineering serving the common good. This global outlook, leadership focus and service commitment permeate our culture. Our vision is supported by a mission and values that, together, provide the framework for all that we do.  Information about our vision, mission and values can be found at:

The University of Michigan has a storied legacy of commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). The Michigan Engineering  component of the University’s comprehensive, five-year, DEI strategic plan—along with updates on our programs and resources dedicated to ensuring a welcoming, fair and inclusive environment—can be found at:


In either the bioaerosols or non-thermal plasmas research area, duties will predominantly involve the design and fabrication of experimental apparatuses and subsequent experimental studies examining physical and chemical transformations of airborne viruses and bacteria resulting from exposure to short- and long-lived oxidants, and correlating such changes to infectivity.

Required Qualifications*

Candidates with earned doctorates in atmospheric sciences or electrical, chemical, or mechanical engineering disciplines are encouraged; however candidates with bioaerosol or plasma experience holding doctoral degrees in any engineering or physical science discipline will be considered.  Candidates are especially encouraged to apply who, in addition to the above qualifications, have experience in fluid-electric coupling (i.e., EHD); numerical simulation of charged aerosols; aerosol oxidation chemistry; single particle fluorescence spectroscopic or fluorescence/chemiluminescence flow visualization techniques.
