- Fixed-Term for 3 years

You will undertake directed research towards defined project objectives, as well as independent research on ethical issues and values, and cultural shifts regarding synthetic biology for environmental issues. The primary research focus will be the social, ethical, and/or cultural dimensions of synthetic biology for climate change mitigation, in applications such as Negative Emissions Technologies, including the use of bioengineered microorganisms to sequester existing greenhouse gas emissions and/or reduce future emissions through biofuels. Additional environmental applications of synthetic biology may also be considered, as a secondary research focus (such as synthetic biology in conservation, bioremediation, or bioplastics.)

You will contribute to projects aligned with the Social Dimensions capability, working closely with supervisor and Chief Investigator Dr Josh Wodak and other research team members to achieve project objectives.

You will be based at the Western Sydney University Node of the CoESB, at ICS, and will have access to the CoESB’s research training and professional development opportunities, international visiting fellowships and exchanges (travel arrangements permitting), and the Centre’s network of industry partners.
