Applications are open for Research Fellowship in Methanotrophs at the National University of Singapore Environmental Research Institute (NERI). The National University of Singapore is looking for a research fellow for the project on microbial methane conversion for single-cell protein (SCP) production under high pressure.
NERI seeks an applicant with a strong background in microbiology, metagenomics, and computational biology. Basically, the full-time research fellow will have to actively participate in an incoming research project on the mining of rich environmental bioresources through genomic data for potential methanotrophs, which can be useful in converting methane from biogas sources into SCP.
The identified methanotrophs will be used for methane conversion in a novel pressurized bioreactor. This project will utilize the following techniques: metagenomics-based data mining, metabolic modeling, microbial cultivation, and nutritional analysis.
The National University of Singapore is the first autonomous research university in Singapore. It is also the oldest higher education institution in Singapore. It offers a wide range of disciplines, including the sciences, medicine and dentistry, design and environment, law, arts, and social sciences, engineering, business, computing, and music in both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. NUS ranks 1st in Singapore & the Asia Pacific, and 22nd in the world according to the 2018 Times Higher Education World University Rankings. Similarly, 11th in the world according to the 2019 QS World University Rankings.
