Ohio State launched a new application system, powered by Workday, on January 3, 2021. This update makes it easier for you to see and apply for openings across both The Ohio State University and Ohio State Wexner Medical Center through a single site, as well as track the status of your application. Screen reader users will encounter difficulty with this site during implementation. For assistance, please contact our ADA Coordinator at Lissner.2@osu.edu or (614) 292-7024. If you have questions while submitting an application, please review these frequently asked questions .


Current Employees and Students:
If you are currently employed or enrolled as a student at The Ohio State University, please log in to Workday to use the internal application process.



Welcome to The Ohio State University's career site.  We invite you to apply to positions of interest. In order to ensure your application is complete, you must complete the following:

  • Ensure you have all necessary documents available when starting the application process. You can review the additional job description section on postings for documents that may be required.
  • Prior to submitting your application, please review and update (if necessary) the information in your candidate profile as it will transfer to your application. 


Job Title:
Postdoctoral Scholar


Department:
FAES | Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering

The responsibilities of the position will be to work with various different research project teams and industry collaborators to design and conduct lab scale and pilot scale experiments to: 1. Optimize TK root milling and the extraction of rubber and inulin, 2. Develop pretreatment processes for TK and for hemp byproducts and 3. Develop a fermentation system to convert methane to biomass suitable to be used as animal feed. It requires the use of analytical methods such as high performance liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, advanced solvent extraction (ASE), gel permeation chromatography, differential scanning calorimetry, scanning electron microscopy and other analytical methods to precisely quantify rubber and inulin in roots, sugars, ethanol and other biomolecules in extract solutions, root extracts and products and the ability to characterize rubber impurities physically and chemically. Another objective of the position will be to evaluate the potential of extracted inulin and lignocellulosic bagasse fractions as well as hemp byproducts to be hydrolyzed to fermentable sugars that can be used as a feedstock to produce bioethanol and other value added products.
 

The position requires the ability to design processes, identify equipment and assemble equipment, simulate commercial scale processes using process modelling software. The supervision of graduate students, research assistants and undergraduates under the direction of the team leaders is also required.

The position requires a PhD in engineering with experience in bioprocessing, biomass compositional analysis, bioprocess optimization, statistical analysis, fermentation, alkaline pretreatment, enzyme digestion and writing and publishing peer reviewed scientific papers describing research. The candidate must have been granted PI status by the OSU Dean of Research and be allowed to apply for research funding.
