A post-doctoral position is open for a young researcher motivated by the field of electromicrobiology. Connecting microbes with electrodes is of increasing interest for microbial electrosynthesis and remediation. We are currently interested in denitrification, and hydrogen production and we developed protocols to promote and study direct electron transfer reactions with microbes.
The candidate will be involved in the supervision of PhD students working for mentioned applications, and he/she will apply engineered microbes in living materials with the goal to demonstrate the electrosynthetic applications. This research will involve heterologous expression of proteins in bacteria and yeast systems.
The candidate must have a strong background in microbiology, heterologous expression of proteins and molecular biology. A first experience in electromicrobiology will be highly appreciated.
The candidate must be fluent in English and must be independent in writing reports.
The research will be conducted at the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry and Microbiology for Materials and Environment (http://www.lcpme.cnrs-nancy.fr) in collaboration with the Agronomy and Environment Laboratory (http://lae.univ-lorraine.fr/accueil/).
