Opportunities for MASc, MEng, and PhD students
BioZone’s research is aimed directly at creating a world where:
- everything we throw into our compost bins is converted efficiently into energy
- algae are farmed to produce clean, renewable food and energy
- natural enzymes are harnessed to convert crop residues into useful materials
- computers are used to design living cells that make green consumer products and cheap and effective pharmaceuticals
- bacteria are trained to clean up chemical pollutants in contaminated groundwater
- damaged tissue in sick or injured people can be repaired using engineered cells
- foods are enhanced with micronutrients to alleviate malnutrition around the world
Do you what to help? Ideal candidates will have a background in chemical engineering or applied microbiology, or both, have a practical, and a hands-on approach to research.
If you have applied to, or been accepted in, the University of Toronto’s MASc or MEng programs, and fit the description above, contact a BioZone Professor (link) and find out if this is the opportunity for you.
