Postdoc in Water Valorization Using Microalgae: Denmark

A 2-year postdoc position is available to develop and optimize wastewater valorization technology with microalgae, starting July 1st 2019 or shortly after. The successful candidate will join an innovative, collaborative, productive, responsible, international, gender-balanced, and multidisciplinary team at DTU Environment. The project aims to develop an innovative benchmark technology for complete valorization of industrial wastewater using microalgae towards production of biofuels and bio-products.

Responsibilities and tasks

The postdoc project position will include laboratory studies for microalgae cultivations and monitoring.

Beside laboratory work, the candidate is also expected to be able to:

  • active dissemination of the obtained results, in high-impact scientific articles and through participation in international conferences, is an integral part of the job
