Ph.D. and Postdoc positions on Reactive CO2 valorization

The Jack Lab (U-M faculty profile) in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department (CEE) at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (UM-CEE, graduate program ranked #3 U.S. News and World Reports) invites applications for multiple funded Ph.D. student and 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 conversion processes towards high reaction rates, selectivity, yields, and energy efficiencies. In addition to pursuing independent research projects, researchers will also obtain valuable grant writing experience, exposure to professional networking events with national labs and private companies, and opportunities to communicate research findings via peer-reviewed journal publications, podcasts, and presentations at national and international conferences. For postdocs: The anticipated start date for this position is Spring 2023 or later. Appointments are anticipated for two years, with renewal after the first year, contingent on satisfactory performance and availability of funds. Successful candidates will hold the rank of postdoctoral ...

PhD position within bioelectrochemical systems for wastewater treatment and resource recovery

Description The Resource Recovery Research Group at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) seeks candidates for a PhD in the field of Microbial Fuel Cells/Microbial Electrolysis Cells for wastewater treatment and resource recovery.
The PhD project will focus on the design of a concept that will allow for a combined biogas upgrading and nutrient recovery using sustainable and low-cost electrode materials such as biochar in bioelectrochemical systems. The project will investigate bioelectrochemical approaches aiming at 1) carbon dioxide utilization for biogas upgrading 2) nitrogen and phoshorus recovery in the form of a biobased fertilizer. The university (NMBU) fully funds the PhD position. The PhD candidate will work as a part of Resource Recovery research group. The research activities in this PhD project will be carried out as a part of the research center Bio4Fuels, a national center of excellence focusing on research on biofuels and value- added products from biomass. The project will be co-supervised by an interdisciplinary team including Assoc. Prof. Pelin Kocatürk Schumacher, Prof. Sven Kerzenmacher, Prof. Svein Jarle Horn. The project is expected to start in Autumn 2022. Institution contact information The Faculty of Science and Technology, Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU)
Campus Ås, Norway
