PhD position in Microbial Electrochemistry for Power-to-X

The research group Environmental Biotechnology at the University of Tübingen (located at the Geo- and Environmental Center) is looking for an excellent Ph.D. candidate to support our international, interdisciplinary, and dynamic team of environmental/biological engineers, electrochemists, microbiologists, biotechnologists, and molecular biologists. The research in the Environmental Biotechnology Group is focused on the utilization of open, mixed, and pure microbial cultures in engineered systems, for example, for biotechnological production platforms. In addition, the group studies the storage of renewable electric power with biological power-to-X technology. We apply methods from bioreactor design and operation (lab- and pilot-scale), genetic engineering, electrochemistry, and systems biology to next-generation sequencing, proteomics, and sequence analysis. We are offering a Ph.D. position for a motivated and driven student with an interest in microbial electrochemistry. This position provides an opportunity for the candidate to be creative and innovative, and to work on a challenging and multidisciplinary topic. The candidates will have the opportunity to present his/her results in international journals and conferences. English is the language of choice that is used in our international group. The Ph.D. student would actively collaborate with a chemistry group in Tübingen. The ideal candidate should have a solid background in electrochemistry, for example, ...

Electrified CO2 capture and conversion

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 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.
This position is currently open with an anticipated start date dependent on the applicant’s availability. 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 research fellow and ...
