The University of Minnesota *Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems
Engineering*, a multidisciplinary department composed of engineers and
scientists, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the *Assistant
Professor *level in biodegradation of bio-based resources and materials.
Microbial pathways to deconstruct plant tissues have long been studied in a
pest management context, particularly in wood durability, but these
pathways are increasingly being studied in nature and harnessed for
bioconversion of plant biomass. This has diversified the organisms being
studied and broadened definitions for bio-based resources and
resources include wood, agricultural crop residues, and other biomass.
Bio-based materials include forest products, bio-based composites and
polymeric lignocellulose derivatives. The successful candidate will develop
a strong, extramurally funded research program involving fundamentals and
applications of microbiology (including bacterial and fungal biology and
plant-pathogen interactions) related to biological degradation or
protection of bio-based resources and materials. The position is 50%
teaching, 50% research.
