Applications are invited to the above role to undertake the research and deliver the objectives of an exciting new proof-of-concept project aiming to validate a specific synthetic biology approach to overcoming product and feedstock inhibitions in industrial gas fermentation, which has recently been commercialised.
This project brings together state of the art synthetic biology and this important new industrial biotechnology process, which has great potential to achieve large-scale decreases in greenhouse gas emissions and positive impacts on climate change. This externally-funded post is based in the research group of Dr John Heap at the University of Nottingham, and involves an industrial partner.

Candidates must hold a PhD or equivalent in Microbiology, Molecular Biology or other closely linked relevant subject area or be close to completion of this PhD.
