Post-doc Position in Separation Processes, URD ABI, France

Post-Doctoral Fellowship Position at USA, Ozbolat Laboratory at Penn State

Post-doc Position in Separation Processes: Join our research and development unit, URD ABI, located at the Pomacle-Bazancourt biorefinery, as a Post-doc researcher for a 12-month project in separation processes of lignin oligomers. We are dedicated to the valorization of agroresources and biorefinery by-products, specializing in white biotechnologies, green chemistry, and process engineering. In this role, you will contribute to the ANR Biopoliol project, focusing on producing bio-based molecules for insulating materials from depolymerized lignin. Your work will involve implementing separation technologies, including membrane processes and liquid-liquid extraction assisted by membrane contactor, to purify depolymerized lignin into oligomers.
