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.
