POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AVAILABLE at Autonomous Metropolitan University- Cuajimalpa Campus (UAM-C) (Mexico City- MEXICO)

With experience on the Microalgal CO2 capture systems for biogas conditioning, reduction of flue gases and for the production of biomass and its use for producing gaseous biofuels or added-value products (you can see a list of the most recent publications at the end of the page), the researchers of the Autonomous Metropolitan University- Cuajimalpa Campus (UAM-C) seek for a candidate that will help to accelerate the generation of scientific and technological knowledge by doing lab and pilot plant experimental research, supervising students and publishing the results in high impact scientific journals.

Profile:

The candidate should hold a PhD on bioprocess, biochemical, biotechnology, chemical or environmental engineering or microbiology. It is necessary to demonstrate knowledge (via publications or conference proceedings) on microalgae cultivation, photobioreactor operation and desirable capabilities on monitoring, instrumentation using engineering software (Labview or other platforms) or molecular tools. However, it is completely necessary to demonstrate skills on writing English scientific documents. Communication skills and experience on student supervision will be appreciated.

Please, send a resume (CV) to the following contacts:

  • Marcia MORALES-IBARRIA Head of CO2 capture and conditioning of gaseous streams cluster-CEMIE-Bio at UAM-C. E-mail: mmorales@correo.cua.uam.mx. Phone: +52 (55) 58046500, ext. 3872.
