Welcome to a new lab member

New lab member In July, we will welcome our new postdoc Rhitu Kotoki from the Regional Centre for Biotechnology, Faridabad, India. Rhitu has a Ph.D. in microbiology from Assam University. He has a background in microbial genetics, omics and bioinformatics. He is interested to study the genetic and physiological properties of microorganisms with biotechnological potential. You can read more about his previous work here. When joining the team, Rhitu will be involved in better understanding extracellular electron uptake in methanogens and manipulating genes to improve this property. He will be part of a team of 5 that will investigate strategies…Continue readingWelcome to a new lab member


ERC consolidator grant

Incredible news. Amelia received an ERC consolidator grant for the project: Conductive MInerals As Electrical Conduits In METhane Cycling (MIMET). ERC consolidator grants are awarded to excellent researchers based in Europe, that are 7-12 years from receiving their PhD. The purpose of these grants is for established young labs to strengthen their research teams. This is a grant of 2 million euros (ca. 14 million Dkk-), based at the University of Southern Denmark. With MIMET, we aim to understand how interactions between microbes and mineral particles may affect the methane cycle. Several postdocs and PhD positions will become available. If…Continue readingERC consolidator grant
