The Jack Lab (U-M faculty profile) in the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering Department (CEE) at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (UM-CEE, program ranked #2 U.S. News and World Reports) invites applications for funded post-doctoral research fellow positions to study fundamental kinetic and thermodynamic processes at the electrochemical-biological interface towards the development of scalable CO2 capture and conversion technologies. This interdisciplinary work will span topics such as electrochemical water and CO2 electrolysis as well as several emerging microbial electrochemical technologies (e.g. microbial electrosynthesis, electro-enzymatic synthesis, electro-fermentation, microbial electrolytic carbon capture). Overall, this work will focus on tailoring CO2 ...
