Microalgae Culture Manager, Center for Economic and Environmental Education

The Microalgae Culture Manager is expected to develop and oversee the Microalgae Culture Facility which includes the training and supervision of students, and additional staff as hired. This facility is responsible for maintaining microalgae cultures to meet the diverse needs of the Center for Economic and Environmental Development (CEED), which includes supplying microalgae to the shellfish hatchery when in operation, and the annual and on-going requirements of the marine ornamental research program. In addition, the Microalgae Culture Manager is expected to identify and develop new research areas and participate in on-going research directed at improving microalgae culture technology.

Doctoral Fellowship Minnesota

Postdoctoral Fellowship Minnesota


Phycoplankton specialist

  • Lake and pond ecology based on phytoplankton

A postdoctoral researcher position is open at Le Mans University (France) and
University Laval (Québec, Canada) for a duration of one year from the 1st of October. The
first 6th months will take place in France and the last 6 months in Canada. The aim of the
research project is to analyse omic data (genomes and transcriptomes) from different
strains and species of the genus Haslea, already available in partner laboratories. The
exploitation of these data will have important outputs at both fundamental and application
levels (for instance in blue biotechnology)

Postdoctoral Job in biomineralization at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

A postdoctoral position is available at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to work on elucidating the molecular mechanisms of biomineralization in algae.

We are experts in the research of plant and algal biology entering this new and exciting research area as part of a multi-disciplinary team of scientists encompassing biology, chemistry, materials science, electron microscopy and nanofabrication. This gives us the unique opportunity to pursue fundamental understanding of the molecular mechanisms with which diatoms produce their silica cell walls while contributing to its translation: to build a research infrastructure that allows for manipulating diatom frustules, quantification of the changes, and testing of their function. Our group is committed to a diverse and nurturing research environment where different ideas are openly shared and strongly encouraged. The lab is located on the UC-Berkeley campus in the San Francisco Bay Area, the heart of an inspiring and exciting research environment.
