Are you an experienced environmental analytical scientist with a strong background in biochemical and environmental analysis in the context of agro-ecology and sustainability?

We are looking for an individual who will be responsible for conducting research on an exciting project, as directed by the principal investigator, and you will have the opportunity to work with a significant degree of independence.  

The aim of this project is to determine the amount of synthetic nitrogen fertiliser that can be replaced through application of a combination of R-Leaf photocatalyst and endophytes to wheat crop, and the dual environmental benefits stemming from the reduced synthetic nitrogen fertilizer use and the breakdown of the greenhouse gas N2O.

You will need to have a strong background in research methods. You will also need to have experience in designing, conducting, and project managing original research in characterising materials using advanced analytical chemistry methods such as X-ray diffraction, UV-visible transmission/reflection spectroscopy, and GCMS. Additionally, you will conduct photocatalytic NOx conversion testing and you will be conducting both field and laboratory research to improve crop productivity sustainably.

You will be working in the Joseph Banks Laboratory at our Brayford Campus, as well as the Lincoln Institute for Agri-food Technology based at our Riseholme Campus. Travel between our campuses is easy with our free shuttle bus for colleagues from multiple locations around the city.

If you would like to have an informal discussion regarding this role, please contact Dr Taghread Hudaib, Senior Lecturer, at thudaib@lincoln.ac.uk.
