Master thesis: Process development for industrial waste-to-value applications using extremely halophilic archaea
Industrial plants all over the world produce huge amounts of waste streams.
Most of them are released to the environment untreated and are therefore an
enormous problem for nature. Since industrial waste waters do often have high
salinities or alkalinities, their treatment requires the use of extremophilic microorganisms. In this master thesis, you will be part of a team, which uses extremely halophilic
microorganisms for the degradation of organic compounds in waste waters containing
high salt concentrations. Your focus thereby is on the investigation of various substrates
on the process behavior including the biomass formation and the ability to degrade organic
During your master thesis, you will have the chance to get an insight into the cultivation
of extremely halophilic archaea in different scales (shake flasks and lab-scale bioreactor). You will have the opportunity to carry out continuous fermentations with cell retention systems and evaluate your experiments using HPLC measurements and statistical data analysis.
Furthermore, you will have the chance to work in a motivated and interdisciplinary team of students and researchers.
If you like environment, biology and engineering, get motivated and apply now for your thrilling adventure in the world of bioscience engineering!
You are studying bioprocess technology, biotechnology, biochemistry, or similar.
You have already some experiences in microbial laboratory work and an affinity to
process engineering and statistical data analysis.
Moreover, you are team-orientated, motivated and scientifically curious.
The position is available from now on and is scheduled for 6 months. A small compensation of
6x ? 300 upon successful completion of the thesis is possible.
