Graduate student scholarships in environmental microbiology/biotechnology at Kyung Hee University in Korea


The PhD (or combined MS-PhD course) student will get involved in an interdisciplinary research project that examines i) microbial/viral diversity and function in the urban water cycle and ii) fate and abatement of micropollutants in environmental bioprocesses (e.g., water/wastewater/waste treatment), using computational and experimental approaches. Candidates are desired to have i) good knowledge with environmental engineering/biotechnology/microbiology, ii) laboratory skills (e.g., molecular microbiological techniques), or iii) programming skills (e.g., writing scripts in Perl or Python) and proficiency in R, Matlab, and Unix/Linux. Good communication (written and oral) skills in English would be highly desirable. An official English test score (TOEFL, IELTS, etc.) is mandatory for graduate program admission in KHU.
