Principal Investigator in Biochemical Engineering: Ireland
As part the UCC Futures-Sustainability Initiative UCC is recruiting multiple Principal Investigators in diverse themes related to environmental sustainability. These are exciting opportunities to join multidisciplinary teams tacking some of the most critical challenges facing society today and into the future.
We are recruiting a Biochemical Engineer to expand critical mass in the SUSFERM Fermentation Science Centre, which is a multidisciplinary centre creating new research synergies to tackle complex scientific and technological challenges associated with development of new products and processes related to microbial fermentation.
This is a joint post anchored in the Schools of Microbiology and Engineering and we seek a colleague whose research activities will centre on the development of microbial fermentation-based bioprocesses for applications in the bioeconomy. We are interested in candidates who will implement a research programme linking microbiology and process & chemical engineering. The research focus is likely to be on the development of microbial bioprocesses for industrial applications and could include areas such as modelling, digitilisation, strain engineering and bioprocess development. The successful candidate will build collaborations with SUSFERM colleagues from diverse disciplines and is expected to develop an internationally competitive research programme as well as contribute to research training at the highest level.
