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.
Amelia will give a talk entitled “Electric interspecies interactions” for the Departmental lecture series 2015/16 at the Biology Department, University of Southern Denmark. The 1 hour lecture is followed by drinks, snacks and hopefully lots of very interesting discussions.
Amelia will introduce the projects in our lab at the Nordic Center for Earth Evolution group meeting on Monday November 23rd.
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.
