Keegstra Bioenergy Research Fellowship Program
The Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) invites applications for the Keegstra Bioenergy Research Fellowships in integrative bioenergy sciences. We are recruiting talented and highly motivated postdoctoral fellows for projects that cross the traditional bioenergy boundaries of plant genetics, biomass deconstruction, microbial engineering, and sustainability. Candidates must be within three years of a PhD degree at the start of the fellowship and must not have been previously associated with GLBRC.
Keegstra Fellows play a special role in enhancing cross-team research integration within GLBRC, promoting interdisciplinary approaches to advance research in lignocellulosic bioenergy and bioproducts. Successful candidates will work with two faculty mentors, each based in one of the Center’s research areas: field-to-product integration, sustainable cropping systems, and efficient biomass conversion.
The Keegstra Fellowships are two-year appointments with a salary starting at $60,000 per year.
