The
Industrial Biotechnology group at Chalmers University of Technology

is seeking a Post
-
doc to work on the research project “
Improvement of biogas generation by coupling
bioelectrochemical systems to anaerobic digestion
”. The aim of the project is to define the
possibility to control the performances of an anaerobic digeste
r (AD), in terms of methane
production, through the installation of a bioelectrochemical system (BES) directly connected
to the digester. The fundamental idea is to add further potentials to biogas generation
exploiting diluted wastewater. The work connect
ed to this position includes set
-
up of
different AD
-
BES coupled systems, analysis of microbial populations and use of
analytical/chromatographic techniques to monitor the bioprocesses.


You should have a Ph.D. degree preferably in biotechnology, chemical/b
iochemical
engineering, microbiology or related disciplines. Applicants with experience in dealing with
anaerobic digestion or bioelectrical systems will be preferred.

Fluency in English, both written and verbal, is a must.

The
Industrial Biotechnology group

is a very young, dynamic and international group which
was established in 2008 and counts now 24
members. The common denominator of the
research activities in the group is to optimize the use of renewable raw materials for the
sustainable production of fuels and chemicals. The research performed within the group
spans from fundamental research, techno
logy develo
pment and lab
-
scale application.
