         Post-Doctoral Research Associate: Phototrophic Biofilms.

         Carbon dioxide mitigation using thermotolerant phototrophs.

The Ohio University, Oakridge National Laboratory and Montana State 
University, Department of Microbiology have been awarded funds by the 
Department of Energy to design, build and set operating parameters for a 
small pilot plant to reduce the carbon dioxide levels in coal-fired power 
plant emissions.  The position is in the Department of Microbiology at 
Montana State University, Bozeman , MT.  The part of the project to be 
carried out at MSU is to isolate thermotolerant phototrophs from thermal 
areas in Montana and neighboring states and characterize them 
physiologically [especially in their ability to form stable biofilms].  The 
organisms will be supplied to the engineers in Ohio who will utilize them 
in an existing fixed film bio-reactor.  The applicant should have a Ph.D. 
in Microbiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology or related field,  be 
acquainted with isolation techniques for phototrophs, and be conversant 
with molecular technology related to taxonomy and biodiversity.  The 
successful candidate will be able  to collaborate with 
non-biologically-educated colleagues and able to work with minimal 
supervision.  The Post-Doctoral Research Associate will be housed in the 
Department of Microbiology and affiliated with the NASA - supported Thermal 
Biology Institute at MSU.  The position is available immediately.  The 
project  is renewable for two years.  Respond to Keith E.  Cooksey,
