Cable bacteria are filamentous bacteria that can conduct electrons across centimetre-scale distances and thereby metabolize distantly located electron donors and acceptors in aquatic sediment. The DNRF Center for Electromicrobiology at Aarhus University is looking for a motivated and talented PhD student to investigate how cable bacteria and their electron conductors work, based on the numerous options and challenges that this exceptional scale of biological electron transport poses for experimental studies. Institution contact information Department of Biology, Ny Munkegade 114-116, Aarhus C, Denmark. Contact email address lpn@bios.au.dk External link https://phd.scitech.au.dk/for-applicants/apply-here/may-2020/electron-conduction-in-cable-bacteria/ ...

The DNRF Center for Electromicrobiology at the Department of Biology, Aarhus University is looking for a motivated and talented PhD student to work with cable bacteria. Cable bacteria are filamentous sulfide-oxidizing bacteria that conduct electrons across centimetre-scale distances in aquatic sediment. Most of the factors driving cable bacteria genetic divergence and evolution are currently unknown. The student will address the ecophysiology, taxonomic diversity, and evolution of cable bacteria using molecular approaches (metagenomics, amplicon sequencing, qPCR) as well as microcosm-scale experiments to profile the physiological characteristics of different cable bacteria strains or to perform competition experiments. Institution contact information Department of ...

We are looking for a talented student with a strong background in biochemistry to fill a four-year PhD post within the Academy of Finland Fellowship project “Novel biocatalysts for a sustainable bioeconomy – enzyme structures enabling carbon dioxide valorisation at electrodes”. Project description
This project is inspired by the recent discovery of an archaeal enzyme complex, which catalyses the reduction of CO2 at submerged electrodes. Within this project, it will be attempted to determine the structure of this archaeal enzyme complex and a functionally related bacterial enzyme complex and use this information for the development of novel electrosynthetic enzymes. Thereby, this ...

My group at Penn State (http://www.theohlab.com/) is looking for postdoc scholars with training in electrochemistry and membrane science and engineering. My lab focuses on polymer membranes for energy-efficient separations (biomedical, water and energy applications), and the prospective postdocs could broaden their application area in membrane fields. Please feel free to forward this message on to anyone who may be interested in.
Details:
1. Postdoc position – postdoc scholar with training in electrochemistry and membrane science/engineering
To submit an application, the prospective scholar should contact Prof. Hee Jeung Oh (hjoh@psu.edu) and include the following information:
1. CV including list of publications
2. Contact information for three ...
