SULIS: Redefining Liquid Sunshine wins Hult Prize at Rutgers Competition

The newly formed Honors College at Rutgers University was envisioned as “a living-learning community focused on tackling complex problems and global challenges.” Four students and their faculty advisors just put that theory into practice. Honors College students Yuki Osumi ('20/School of Arts and Sciences), Sarah Pomeranz ('20/Rutgers Business School), and Anurag Modak ('20/SAS), with Ari Mendelow (‘18/School of Engineering) won the Hult Prize at Rutgers University Competition on December 8. Johnson & Johnson, one of the sponsors of the competition donated the $1,000 first prize.

Rutgers Business School student Sarah Pomeranz said that she and the team were ecstatic over the win, and very grateful to their advisors. “We had a Board of Advisors comprised of Rutgers faculty and professionals spanning the campus; we learned so much from them and our experiences in the Rutgers Eco Complex and the Innovation Lab .”

SULIS (solar ultraviolet light-induced sterilization) is a solar powered water purification system for communities without access to clean water, whether they are in developing countries or recovering from natural disasters. The team’s research shows that using ultraviolet light the technology could sterilize 12 liters of water in seven hours.  Read more....

Alternative Fuel Sources Driving Rutgers Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Research

Making fuel from plants has long been a goal of scientists and engineers hoping to limit wild swings in fuel prices and availability and to prepare for a time when fi nite supplies of petroleum dry up.But the promise of obtaining abundant and sus-tainable supplies of liquid fuel from biomass, by and large agricultural crops, is a challenge that still vexes scientists and engineers after decades of research.

Job Opening: Assistant Professor - Atmospheric Chemistry at Rutgers

Assistant Professor - Atmospheric Chemistry

Rutgers University–New Brunswick, New Jersey

Applications will be begin to be reviewed January 31, 2018

The Department of Environmental Sciences (http://envsci.rutgers.edu) at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick, NJ, invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the area of Atmospheric Chemistry. The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in atmospheric chemistry, chemical engineering, or a related environmental discipline and demonstrated ability to conduct research in a university setting; teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels in atmospheric chemistry or other courses relevant to research interests; and mentor students. We seek applicants with research interests in areas including, but not limited to, interactions between climate change and air quality, and the role of atmospheric chemistry in biogeochemical cycles. We especially encourage applicants who desire to develop interdisciplinary projects and to collaborate with faculty from other programs and departments at Rutgers, including Earth and Planetary Sciences, Ecology and Evolution, Geography, Marine and Coastal Sciences, Biochemistry and Microbiology, the School of Engineering, and the Rutgers Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute. The successful applicant will be eligible for membership in the Institute of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, which unites faculty, researchers, and graduate students studying Earth's interior, continents, oceans, atmosphere, and biosphere, their interactions through Earth history, and their effects on human civilization today. Applicants will be expected to develop a strong, externally-funded research program and to contribute to the Department's education and research missions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The facilities of the Department of Environmental Sciences include local and remote supercomputing and an array of state-of-the-art laboratory instrumentation. As a member of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, we have access to the computing and research facilities of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Locally, our Photochemical Assessment Monitoring (PAM) Site (http://pamsite.rutgers.edu/) supports continuous, real-time measurements of various physical and chemical properties of the lower boundary layer, including surface energy fluxes. Through the PAM Site, the department has a strong working relationship with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Air Quality, which controls over 100 air monitors at 33 different field sites throughout the state. A member of the Big Ten and the Association of American Universities, Rutgers-New Brunswick is America’s eighth oldest institution of higher learning and New Jersey’s premier public research university. The city of New Brunswick sits in the center of America’s vibrant northeast corridor, which runs from Boston to Washington, D.C. We are close to NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton and NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, NY, and our faculty members collaborate with scientists at both. We host one of the most diverse student bodies in the United States. As our 2016 commencement speaker President Barack Obama said, “America converges here.”

Qualified applicants should apply at http://jobs.rutgers.edu/postings/53675 with a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and the names and contact information for three references. Review of applications will begin January 31, 2018, with an intended start date of September 1, 2018. Applicants from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. Questions may be addressed to search@envsci.rutgers.edu.
