 One faculty, five postdoc and graduate student positions in Biofuels and Biorefinery

Location: Nanjing, China

Employer: Nanjing Agricultural University

College of Engineering, Nanjing Agricultural University (a top national university under the Ministry of Education of China) established a group for biomass and biorefinery in December 2015. A new faculty position (in chemistry, microbiology and engineering) at any ranks, and five postdoc and graduate student positions are now being recruited within this group led by Prof. Zhen FANG to convert renewable biomass and agricultural wastes to biofuels and chemicals.

Possible topical areas of this group include thermo-chemical conversion processes, hydrothermal processes, green solvents (ionic liquids, organic solvents, supercritical fluids) for biorefining, synthesis of nanocatalysts for chemicals, biofuels, bio-diesel production processes, biological conversion processes (e.g., microbial oil, algae biodiesel, fermentation for hydrogen, ethanol and butanol), conversion of biomass to liquid, solid and gaseous fuels; separation of bioproducts; integration of biomass production/conversion/utilization concepts; and other relevant topics.

The faculty member will be expected to develop an internationally recognized, externally funded research program and to provide leadership in educational undergraduate and graduate programs in the areas of bioenergy and bio-based products from agricultural wastes.

The candidates are expected to have a background in

  1. chemical and catalyst synthesis, chemical reactions, green chemistry and wood chemistry for chemistry position,
  2. micro-organisms, enzymes and algae to make biobased products in sectors such as chemicals, food, biodiesel and bioenergy for microbiology or industrial biotechnology position, and
  3. chemical engineering, biochemical engineering, agricultural engineering, bio-processing or a related field of engineering on the design, operation, control, and optimization of chemical, physical, and biological processes for process engineering position,    Telephone: +86-25-58606554 Mr. Mao Email: gxyrcb@njau.edu.cnAddress: 40 Dianjiangtai Road, Pukou District,
