Evologic Technologies is a small Spinoff focusing on bioprocess control and bioprocess development technologies. Currently we are working on a production process for AMF, a symbiotic fungus, which is capable of increasing fertilizer efficiency in agriculture. To render AMF an economically feasible product, the production costs have to be lowered significantly. In close cooperation with academia (TUWien), we are tackling this challenge using advanced process control strategies, a high degree of parallelization and rapid prototype testing.
Starting in March we are offering a paid Master Thesis in cooperation with the TUWien:
Aim of Study:
The production of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) is challenging, since the state of the art methods of analytics are either greatly time consuming and only achieve a remarkably low reproducibility. But in the context of process development, product quantification and product quality analysis are of utmost importance. Within your master thesis you will establish and develop at-line methods to outperform the state-of-the-art methods in terms of sensitivity, effort and reproducibility. Based on these analytical methods an AMF culture shall be characterized to elucidate growth and reproduction kinetics and to render them accessible.
Background in plant physiology and bioengineering or bioanalytics
Lab experience (sterile work environment)
High level of motivation and self organisation
Highly appreciated - experience in plant tissue culture
