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.
