We are working on new renewable bioprocess strategies using microbial hosts. Aiming for fast and effective bioprocess development as well as advanced process control, experimental characterization is combined with computer-aided methods. Are you interested to do research in the field of microbial fermentation technology? We are looking forward to hearing from you!
You are studying biotechnology, biochemistry, process engineering or a similar subject. Previous experience with microbial laboratory work is favorable.
Most important is your motivation to learn something new!
You will perform continuous bioreactor cultivations with a recombinant Corynebacterium glutamicum strain using renewable substrates. Thereby, you can get to know a fully equipped bioreactor setup, various analytical methods (e.g. HPLC, enzyme assay robot, FTIR) and a real-time process control system in our Process Analytical Technologies Lab. You will learn how to plan, perform and analyze bioreactor processes at lab-scale using model based experimental design.
Time-frame and salary
This work ideally starts in Q1 2022 and is scheduled for 6 months. Starting date can be discussed on demand.
A small compensation (€ 1800 = 6 x € 300) upon successful completion of the thesis is possible
