From February 15th we will welcome our new team member – Dr. Satoshi Kawaichi from RIKEN biofunctional catalyst research team, Tokyo, Japan. Satoshi will work on microbial influenced iron corrosion. We are very excited to meet and work with Satoshi from 2016 onwards.
We are looking for a lab technician to assist our lab with studies on microbial electrosynthesis and microbial influenced iron corrosion. By the end of the year the group will consist of 2 PhD students, 1 postdoc, and the PI. We expect an academic technician and a lab technician to join us as well in 2016. Please apply online here (for the academic tech) and here (for the lab tech).
Application deadline for the postdoc position on the iron-corrosion project is now closed (Oct 1st). All applications are being assessed by a committee. Selected candidates will be invited for interviews soon. Very excited to learn who our new team member will be.
The Danish research council awarded 7 million DKK to investigate how methanogenic Archaea corrode iron and ultimately find ways to prevent corrosion. The project will be carried out at SDU.
On this project 3 positions are available (see more details here
- 1 postdoc position which will investigate the molecular mechanisms used by methanogens to corrode metallic iron
- 1 PhD position to isolate highly corrosive strains from corroded oil/gas pipes and find what promotes corrosion
- 1 lab technician – which will be helping not only with the iron corrosion studies, but also with the microbial electrosynthesis project funded by a Novo Nordisk award.
