Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post Doc position on macroalgal blue carbon in the Arctic
Marine vegetated ecosystems support carbon storage, so-called blue carbon, as well as multiple other ecosystem functions. The role of macroalgae for carbon cycling and storage is challenging to quantify because macroalgal detritus is exported by ocean currents to sinks beyond the habitats and documentation of the storage therefore requires fingerprinting methods to document the macroalgal origin. The project involves studying these fluxes from the coastal habitat, tracing macroalgae in Arctic marine sediments by eDNA and stable isotopes and evaluating the contribution of macroalgae to carbon storage. The Post Doc is expected to contribute to analyses of field- and experimental information on macroalgal eDNA and decomposition in marine sediments, bioinformatic- and statistical analyses, and writing of scientific papers. The position also involves project management as well as contribution to further establish eDNA methods and developing mapping, monitoring and management strategies for Nordic/Arctic blue carbon habitats.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in Chemical Engineering for Gas Hydrate Study
While different technologies exist for carbon capture as the first link in CCS, to achieve the EU Green Deal’s ambitious path for decarbonization, novel, less energy-demand technologies must be developed, especially when small to medium size emission sources are considered. Carbon capture via Gas Hydrate is one of the promising new technology that could be used for all scales of CCS; however, it will open up an opportunity for smaller emitters to engage in the global efforts of reducing GHG emissions. The position will focus on searching for better gas hydrate promoters to reduce the operating pressure of a gas hydrate-based carbon capture (GHBCC) technology as a means to reduce the energy demand of the process. In addition, the chemo-physical properties of new promoters should be suitable for industrial application. In this 2-year postdoc research, you will search for new promoters, screen potential candidates according to their chemo-physical properties, experimentally determine the Hydrate-liquid-vapor (HLV) phase boundaries of flue gas, lean and rich streams, measure the kinetics behaviors, optimize a GHBCC process, and study the techno-economics of the proposed process.

The main focus for this position will be on mammalian mitochondrial cardiolipin synthases and complexes hereof. As the MIM-Lab officially starts in autumn 2023, you will be joining as the first postdoc and will have ample opportunities to develop the projects and your own research career goals.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position in science policy and negative emissions
The position is related to the Horizon Europe project ‘UPTAKE’ with the following tasks:
Mapping carbon dioxide removal (CDR) knowledge networks and stakeholder groups. This task examines the status of knowledge production on CDR, including mapping relevant stakeholders, funding patterns and prominent themes within the scientific community. To situate the science and data that may be relevant in respective national discourses, we will map the global distribution of research on specific CDR options and identify potential epistemic inequalities in the formation and definition of what constitutes these technologies (and their role in climate policy). This mapping exercise will be based on a mixed-methods approach using bibliometric research and content analysis of the academic literature, social network analysis and interviews (approximately N = 20-30) with scientists from relevant disciplines.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc: Unleashing the potential of biomolecular condensates in enzyme biotechnology
Recently, it has been discovered cells contain a wide variety of membrane-less organelles also known as biomolecular condensates. Many of these condensates are believed to act as reaction crucibles for enzymatic processes – accelerating reactions by bringing together enzymes and substrates, and by creating a more favorable chemical environment for the reactions to occur. On the other hand, other condensates quench chemical reactions by embedding molecules into a physically arrested state – suggesting that it is non-trivial to predict the effects of condensate on enzymes.
In this project, we aim to design new condensates to act as hosts for enzymatic cascades. We will initially focus on natural compounds from the flavonoid family and attempt to engineer condensates that boost the efficiency and specificity of the pathway. The project will involve experimental microbiology, biochemistry and biophysics but may also involve theoretical elements of quantitative modelling. There will be considerable room for the successful candidate to shape the project within the overall project theme. Further details about the project will be provided for short-listed candidates.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in near-surface geophysics
The postdoc will work with electric and electromagnetic methods and the integration of geophysical data into hydrological models. The job includes both field work, data processing, numerical modelling, inversion, and working on the interface between geophysical and hydrological models. The postdoc will have the opportunity to work with both sequential and coupled hydrogeophysical inversion set-ups using either deterministic or probabilistic inversion methods. This work requires a good understating of numerical methods and experience with modelling in Matlab, Python, or Fortran. Across these domains, the position will be tailored to the qualifications of the candidate. In the Blue Transition project, the postdoc will contribute to research that aims at establishing a more climate resilient North Sea Region. In one of the project’s peatland pilot areas, the postdoc will contribute to the geophysical mapping of the near subsurface with a focus on peat thicknesses and water flow paths using transient electromagnetic, electrical resistivity, and induced polarization methods. The geophysical models will with the help from geologists and hydrologists be integrated into a geological and hydrological model of the wetland area and used to assess the influence of water table fluctuations and re-wetting on the hydrological system and CO2 emissions.
