Open Jobs

Position: Post-Doctoral Research Fellow
Project: BioElectrochemical Lithium rEcoVEry (BELIEVE)
Start date: February 15, 2023
Duration: 18 months
Department of Microbial Sciences, University of Surrey, Guildford, Surrey GU2 7XH
Project Supervisors: Professor Claudio Avignone Rossa, Professor Jhuma Sadhukhan, Dr Siddharth Gadkari There is currently a high demand for Li, a high-tech metal found only in a few locations worldwide. Li production is costly, energy-demanding, and environmentally damaging: It is essential to design and optimise methods for recovering Li from spent LiB. This project will focus on designing and optimising a bioelectrochemical system (BES) to recover high purity Li. We will design a microbial electrochemical system to ...

Are you interested in sediment geochemical processes and would you like to work at the interface between biology, electrochemistry, and physics? At the Department of Biology at Aarhus University (Denmark), we seek for a postdoc to investigate the influence of electric fields on the mass transport of nutrients in sediments. The availability of nutrients in aquatic systems controls biological processes that in turn regulate climate and environmental quality. Electric fields naturally develop in soils and sediments, however to date their influence on the transport of dissolved ions has been neglected. In the project e-Move (funded by the Velux Foundation), we ...
