the environmental research center's (erc) at the us air force academy primary mission is to support the air force office of scientific research (afosr) basic research program through faculty and cadet research efforts. The united states air force academy has a long-term vision to establish a multi-year alternative energy program of planning, research and infrastructure investment which started in 2009. The vision involves a mix of research and alternative energy production facilities in solar electric, biofuels, waste-to-methane and other conservation efforts. Given the recent high interest in the use of microalgae in alternative fuels production, our erc has started a biofuels research program. The biofules researcher will aide in developing photosynthetic, growth, and biomass properties of certain microalgae for the purposes of optimizing algal oils production. Research efforts will focus on strain selection/cultivation to improve the overall yield of oils in microalgal mass cultures, in concert with developing novel extraction processes to increase oil harvest yields.
Required skills and knowledge
phd in biochemistry or related field.
Us citizenship required
research background in applied algal biochemistry, physiology and lipid biosynthesis.
Ability to lead and guide a team of laboratory technicians and students, produce reports and other materials to disseminate research results, assist other scientists.
Must have a good working knowledge of laboratory analytical equipment.+10 Other Responses

The zintro blog needs you! i am looking for your expert opinion on the news below and a written response that is one to three paragraphs long. Your response may be used in an article that i will write and post on the zintro site. You will be named in the article and a link to your expert profile will be included. Your contribution is voluntary (there is no direct payment involved, but you will get lots of traffic to your expert profile). If interested, please send me your response via znotes within the next one or two days.
Sara volz, a senior from cheyenne mountain high school in colorado, won first place in the annual intel science talent search competition for using a technique to dramatically boost oil yields from algae, a crucial step in the economically viable production of biofuel from the plants. What type of advances do you expect in the algae fuel production in the near future?
This is a great marketing opportunity to get your name and expert opinion published on our blog. Here is a sample: http://blog.Zintro.Com/2012/01/16/keystone-xl-pipeline-pros-and-cons/
please include your full name, we will link it to your expert profile, getting you more presence on zintro. If you have any questions, please let me know.
