Research Assistant/Associate in Microbial Energetics

Description: 

We are looking for an excellent Research Assistant/Associate to conduct calorimetry experiments on the energetics of different microbial metabolic pathways, including those in microbial fuel cells and microbial electrolysis cells. You will design and execute studies using calorimetry at a macro and micro scale in order to generate fundamental understanding of different microbiological metabolisms.

You will have or be working towards a PhD in Chemical or Environmental Engineering or a related field, and experience of running biological reactors. You will have excellent experimental, laboratory, analytical and writing skills.

You must be able to work in a systematic and rigorous manner. Experience with calorimetry is desirable and an enthusiasm for thermodynamics essential. You will draft well-reasoned and thorough manuscripts and present your work to others.  

This post is part of a new EPSRC funded research Grant. You will work under the supervision of Dr Liz Heidrich and form part of the diverse and supportive Environmental Engineering Group.
