Welcome to Linnaeus University! A place for knowledge, ideas and development. For growth potential and a belief in the future. In Småland and in the world.
The Department of Biology and Environmental Science is part of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. The research activities within this multidisciplinary department include the areas of aquatic ecology, cell and organism biology, evolutionary biology, microbiology, environmental science and environmental engineering as well as disease ecology.
Context of position
The Post Doc scholarship is part of the research group Marine Plankton Ecology and Applications and the multidisciplinary project ALGOLAND, which aims to develop biological solutions to address major societal challenges such as climate change, eutrophication and food/feed production in the Baltic Sea region. Microalgae are used to clean industrial waste streams, such as flue gas or process water and the biomass evaluated as animal feed supplement. The project is a close collaboration between academia and industry and has competence within biology, ecology, environmental science, sustainable development and economy. We seek a highly motivated Post Doc with a strong background in biochemistry or biotechnology engineering. The work involves exploring chemical profiling coupled to genotype of microbial organism in natural aquatic ecosystems and bioreactors. It will also include development of analysis tools for quality assessment of algal biomass, and optimizing biotechnological solutions to reach sustainable processes and production chains.
The research will be conducted in collaboration with other scientist within the Centre for Ecology and Evolution in Microbial model Systems (EEMiS) within Linnaeus University that comprises expertise in ecology, evolution, and microbiology.In your job you are expected to actively participate in the department's environment and network both internally and externally. 20 % of the work can include teaching and tutoring in the undergraduate and graduate level.
Qualified for appointment is the one who holds a PhD, or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD, in biochemistry, biotechnology or other closely related field and who have completed their degree no more than three years before the application deadline.
