Postdoctoral Recruitment of Tian Zhang’s Research Group
We are seeking two postdoctoral research associates to work under the supervision of Prof. Zhang Tian in the Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and life Science Faculty of Wuhan University of Technology, China.
The positions need to be filled by August 1st, 2016 – or as soon as possible thereafter.
The future postdoctoral research associates will be working in a group focusing on the development of bioprocesses for the production of commodity chemicals from C1 compounds including bioinorganic photosynthesis, microbial electrosynthesis and syngas fermentation. The group is also aiming at developing other technologies at the interface of electrochemistry and microbiology such as bioelectrical sensors and electrofermentation.
Position 1 in the field of photo(electrochemistry):
The postdoctoral research associate #1 will focus on:
Developing optimal photoanodes and photocathodes for bioionorganic photosynthesis.
Developing novel cathodes and anodes for microbial electrosynthesis applications
Optimizing reactor designs for bioinorganic photosynthesis and/or microbial electrosynthesis.
The candidate should:
have a PhD in relevant field obtained in the last 3 years
have a proven track record within the field of (photo)-electrochemistry or bioelectrochemistry
have a strong work ethics
·be able to communicate and write technical documents in English
·be a team player comfortable with an international group
Preferably the candidate should have experience with photoelectrodes development and manipulation.
Position 2 in the field of synthetic biology:
The postdoctoral research associate #2 will focus on:
Developing genetic tools to study the metabolism of electrotrophic bacteria
Engineering electrotrophic bacteria for the production of multiple chemical commodities from C1 compounds
