November 2017 – We are currently looking to fill several positions at the post-doc and molecular biology technician level!
We have recently received two grants from the Department of Energy.
The first grant will permit us to investigate and manipulate the photophysiology of Desmodesmus in mass culture. This is a 3 year project funded by Bioenergy Technologies Office. The second grant is to continue our work on the marine diatom Phaeodactylum. This will entail gene discovery efforts to uncover new players in photosynthetic acclimation and efficiency.
We also will work on biocontainment tools to prevent the spread of GMO algae. This work is supported by Biological and Environmental Research Program for 5 years.
If either of these projects appear interesting to you, then please reach out to Graham with your CV and a summary of your research interests and accomplishments.
We are always interested in working with driven undergraduate and graduate student researchers. Please write Dr. Peers directly with a statement of your research interests and resume.
