Post-Graduate Opportunities:

OGPS receives announcement for postdoctoral fellowship opportunities, as well as the occasional career listing.  Here we will share announcements that are of interest to our graduating graduate students, as well as postdoctoral fellows.


Post-Doctoral Fellow, federal funds, to begin immediately.  We are seeking a candidate to reduce to practice novel and patentable concepts for the development of packing materials for immobilization of methanogenic microbial communities in high rate anaerobic digesters.  

Duties:  formulate work plans independently whilst communicating them on a frequent basis with their supervisor and supporting colleagues, formally and informally report their progress on a consistent basis, maintain operation of a lab scale anaerobic digestion process including daily notation of process values such as pH, feed rates, base addition rates, periodically take and analyses liquid and gas phase samples, and track their work in lab notebooks, standardized data sheets, and finally in tables and graphs.  

Minimum Qualifications:  PhD in chemistry, materials science/engineering or equivalent as well as some demonstrated analytical experience with common research lab equipment (examples:  UV/VIS, FTIR, Fluorescence, SEM, microscopy, HPLC, GC).  The successful candidate should also have a demonstrated ability to learn new techniques, to review lab manuals, and to execute tasks on a regular basis as discussed with their supervisor. 

Pay Range: $55,000 – 60,000 annual stipend.  To Apply: Submit statement of research interest, curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information (including e-mail address) of three professional references, and sample of a relevant first-author publication, to be postmarked by the closing date.

Application Address: Personnel Officer, HNEI, 1680 East-West Road, POST 109, Honolulu, HI 96822.

Inquiries: Dr. Michael Cooney 956-7337 mcooney@hawaii.edu.  Continuous recruitment; review of applications begin on 9/1/2013. Incomplete applications will not be considered.


Post-Doctoral Fellow, federal funds, to begin immediately. 

Duties: To conduct fundamental and applied research that reduces to practice concepts on a patented extraction solvent system for the recovery of bio-oils, fermentable sugars, and protein from biomass. Training will include solvent extraction, protein purification and analysis, bio-oil purification, separation, and analysis.  The successful candidate will also seek to advance fundamental understanding of solubility and phase separation, as well as purification and protein stabilization in high salt solutions.  

Minimum Qualifications: Ph.D. in chemical/biochemical engineering, chemistry or biotechnology, or related discipline.  Demonstrated capacity to work and communicate with internal and external colleagues in a collaborative manner towards the collective accomplishment of overall project goals; to formally and informally report their plans and progress on a regular basis; and, to become a leader in the lab environment. Demonstrated ability to learn new techniques, to review the literature, and to plan and execute experiments leading to knew knowledge. 

Pay Range: $55,000 – 60,000 annual stipend. 

To Apply: Submit statement of research interest, curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information (including e-mail address) of three professional references, and sample of a relevant first-author publication, to be postmarked by the closing date. 

Application Address: Personnel Officer, HNEI, 1680 East-West Road, POST 109, Honolulu, HI 96822. 

Inquiries: Dr. Michael Cooney 956-7337 mcooney@hawaii.edu. Continuous recruitment; review of applications begin on 1/25/2010. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
