At Cemvita Factory, we apply synthetic biology to lower the environmental footprint (climate, physical and chemical) of the resources we need both now and for a sustainable future. In the mining industry, we do this by using the latest biotech knowledge and tools to understand and enhance how microbes weather and interact with minerals. Our clients are from heavy industrial companies that strive to apply nature-inspired technologies for sustainable production of the resources we use every day.

This is a PhD level position with a focus on microbiology and biohydrometallurgy in Cemvita Factory’s Biomining vertical. The position will be a key leader of the research-to-rapid commercialization effort that leverages natural microbial-mineral interactions and the latest in biotech to unlock previously uneconomic or recalcitrant metal resources, both primary and secondary sources. Cemvita works with mining companies to reduce the climate footprint of mining, and to secure the metal requirements of our renewable energy future.
