Lallemand Graduate Scholarships in Bioprocessing
The Centre for Applied Synthetic Biology at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, is inviting applications for graduate positions to work in Bioprocessing.
Generous support from Lallemand is enabling Concordia University to provide support for studies in the field of Bioprocessing, defined as processes that develop or utilize natural or genetically-modified living cells or organisms (e.g., bacteria, fungi, plants) or parts thereof (e.g., enzymes, DNA) to obtain products or services; it also includes designing, building and testing real or virtual tools, machines (e.g., reactors, software) and procedures used in the development or fabrication of such products and services.
The support can provide graduate scholarships of up to $20,000; awards are initially for one year, but can be extended up to two years based on performance. Qualified candidates are encouraged to contact Concordia professors from the Centre for Applied Synthetic Biology and the Centre for Structural and Functional Genomics working in the areas defined by the award to develop an application.
The Scholarships are based on academic merit. Scholarships are available to full or part-time students entering or currently enrolled in a Master of /Magisteriate degree or Doctor / Doctorate (PhD) degree at Concordia University. Eligible degrees may include, but are not limited to, the Sciences, Biology, or Engineering. Scholarship applicants must have a minimum 3.2 GPA (on a scale of 4.3) or equivalent.
The positions are available immediately.
Applicants should send their applications, by email, directly to professors.
Applications should include:
• curriculum vitae
• a concise statement of research interests, insofar as fermentation and the creation of novel organisms are concerned
• the names of two referees, willing to provide letters of references, who had taught or supervised the applicant or managed their most recent academic programs. Referees cannot have a demonstrable conflict of interest associated with the student or funded project.
