Default Postdoc Position for Biofuel Research

A POSTDOCTORAL POSITION for BIOFUEL RESEARCH is available immediately at the Biotech Center, Rutgers University, in the laboratory of Prof. Eric Lam ([Only registered users see links. ]) for a highly motivated scientist. Plants have the unique ability of harvesting the sun's energy while fixing atmospheric carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that has been linked to globalwarming and severe climate changes. Although the use of sugarcane for bioethanol production in Brazil has demonstrated the economic and technical feasibility of providing renewable "green" fuel in a large economy, much research and development will be necessary to successfully expand the productivity of energy crops and efficiency of their conversion into fuels. Usinga combination of biochemical, molecular and genetic approaches, this position funded by the Biotechnology Center at Rutgers University will focuson developing methods to engineer plants for facilitating the downstream fermentation process. As such, our objective is to make significant contributions to the worldwide quest for renewable and environmentally sustainable energy source that can replace fossil fuels.
The ideal applicant should have prior experience with molecular and biochemical techniques. Knowledge of plant biology and microscopy will be desirable as well. If you are interested in this position, please email a cover-letter stating your research interests, a curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references to: Prof. Eric Lam, [Only registered users see links. ]
The Biotech Center at Rutgers University is located in New Brunswick,New Jersey, and enjoys a convenient location close to the famous Jersey Shore and Pocono Mountains while also easily accessible (within 1 hour by car or train) to metropolitan areas such as New York City and Philadelphia. The Biotech Center at the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences in the Cook Campus is well equipped with advanced instrumentations for molecular biology, biochemistry and microscopy. Rutgers University is an equal opportunity employer that strongly encourages underrepresented groups toapply for open positions.

Prof. Eric Lam

Director, Biotechnology Center for Agriculture
