2 Phd Positions: Metabolic And Bioprocess Engineering Of Formatotrophic Acetogens (# Of Pos: 2)

Universities and Institutes of Austria

Austria

September 30, 2022

Description

  • Organisation/Company: Technische Universität Wien
  • Research Field: Biological sciences › Biological engineering
  • Researcher Profile: First Stage Researcher (R1)
  • Application Deadline: 30/09/2022 12:00 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: Austria › Vienna
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 30
  • Offer Starting Date: 01/10/2022
  • Acetogens such as A. woodii and T. kivui naturally and efficiently convert CO2 and related one carbon compounds such as formate into acetic acid. This ability could be harnessed to produce valuable compounds with a negative carbon footprint. This long-term project (6 years, FORBIX) aims to establish acetogens as bioproduction platform for upgrading of formate, a compound that can be efficiently and sustainably generated from CO2 and renewable energy via chemical catalysis, into value-added products.

    PhD position “Metabolic engineering” :

    • Engineer an acetogen to produce target metabolites from formate

    • Use –omics analyses to get insights into host metabolism

    PhD position “Bioprocess engineering” :

    • Use continuous cultivation techniques to analyze physiology and production capacity of engineered strains

    • Use metabolic models to analyze metabolic networks

    Participate in conferences, write scientific articles, supervise students.

    Send your application in one pdf including a motivation letter, your CV, your MSc diploma/transcripts, and shortly stating a preference for one position to project PI Dr. Stefan Pflügl (stefan.pfluegl@tuwien.ac.at).

    Benefits

    • Positions are available immediately and are scheduled for 3 years

    • Salary: 14x € 2,300/month, 5 weeks paid annual vacation time

    • Integration in the Sustainable Bioprocess Solutions group at TU Wien
