Applicants are invited for a Research Fellow position to investigate microbially-mediated power-to-gas systems.
You will investigate microbially-mediated power-to-gas systems and develop continuous laboratory-scale systems for biological production of methane at high concentrations both from gas-fed bioreactors and through modification of conventional anaerobic digestion. The research is intended to assess the optimum conditions and the performance limitations and to link these with metabolic functionality and control, in collaboration with other consortium partners.
The post funded by a BBSRC IB Catalyst grant with partners in the Universities of York and Sheffield.
CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS IS 11 June 2015.
Informal enquiries are welcome and can be directed to Prof Charles Banks: firstname.lastname@example.org
An event which has grown exponentially over the past few years, as interest in this growing technology has exploded. This is the main event which focusses on bio-methane, with all the major suppliers in attendance. More information can be found here: http://www.r-e-a.net/events/uk-biomethane-day-2015
The upcoming competition : Finding value in complex biological data – integrated ‘omics’, run by Innovate UK and BBSRC is opening shortly for registration.
The aim of this competition is to build a commercial ecosystem to exploit the commercial opportunities of ‘omics (e.g. genomics, proteomics etc.), systems biology and complex biological data streams with a particular focus on bioinformatics and bio-data based business models. More information on this competition.
Competition Briefing Event – 2 June, London
This event is an excellent opportunity for you to receive first hand information about the competition – its scope, application process, key dates etc. as well as network with peers, potential partners, market leaders & innovators in the industry.

If you are looking for industry or academic partners, contact us – we have a large member list, many of whom are interested in algae.
The Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association’s annual trade show takes place on 1-2 July 15 at the Birmingham NEC. The R&D Hub at the show was extremely successful last year and is destined to be even better this year. This is one of the main annual tradeshows in the AD calendar and is well worth a visit. Come along and find out about cutting edge research in the field of anaerobic digestion and how the Anaerobic Digestion Network can help you. More information can be found here: http://adbioresources.org/uk-ad-biogas-2015
