Position: PhD Scholarship: Molecular Ecology of Haloalkaliphilic Microbes in Alkaline Tailings
Institution: University of Queensland
Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Duties: The PhD study is within a large industry-funded research project aiming to develop ecological engineering technologies for rehabilitating alkaline bauxite residues. The student is expected to undertake focused research on molecular microbial ecology and biology of haloalkaliphilic bacteria in alkaline tailings (such as bauxite residues). A specific project design will be finalised after considering the applicant’s background and experiences. The students will be working with a dynamic multidisciplinary team of experienced researchers dedicated to tackling leading research challenges in the field of ecological engineering of mine wastes such as sulfidic and bauxite tailings. She or he is also expected to interact with industry partners and develop industry-engaged experience during the candidature
Requirements: Hold a BSc or MSc degree in microbiology, environmental biotechnology, molecular ecology, microbial bioinformatics or a related field; Have knowledge and experience in PC2 lab and omics-based skills; Have knowledge and experience in advanced microscopic techniques; Have knowledge and experience in cell culture, enrichment or bio-reactors; Have some knowledge and experience of large dataset analysis by using statistics; Experience of programming languages (Python/R) is favourable
