Nanomembranes for in-situ removal of products from fermentation broth
in Vienna / Austria for 30 hours a week
That’s the project
Membrane-based separation methods are an ideal choice for in-situ product removal to prevent product
inhibition during fermentation. Potential problems are fouling and concentration polarization, two effects,
which are inherent to membrane processes, but their impact can be reduced using self-standing ultrathin nanomembranes. The in-situ separation of organic compounds from a fermentation process is one key step to a sustainable and economic biobased industry. Objective of the PhD position is the optimization of nanomembranes for the desired separation problem.
That could be your future me
You are working with a team of internationally renowned experts in the field. You will have numerous possibilities for further education and personal development by enrolling in a tailored Ph.D. program. Your work will be highly relevant to solve one of the most challenging global problems; the reversal of the carbon cycle.
And not to forget: You make your research visible and broaden your network!
That’s important to us
In the best way you have completed a Master’s degree or Diploma from a recognized University in Organic Chemistry/Biotechnology/Biochemical Engineering or related fields. Laboratory experiences in the following areas are required:
Instrumental analytics (HPLC)
Basic protein and biomolecule analytics
Background in separation science
Membrane technology (not mandatory)
You should enjoy the work in an international interdisciplinary environment. Command in German is not necessary, but we expect fluent English.
