You will lead your own research project that examines how microbes control the fate of iron or cobalt in habitats contaminated with e-waste. This research is funded by an NSERC Discovery Grant awarded to Dr. Daniel Grégoire to launch the Environmental Biogeochemistry and Biotechnology lab at Carleton.

We’re recruiting for two projects: one is focused on iron, and the other, cobalt. Iron is essential to alloys used in consumer electronics and iron concentrations in e-waste are comparable to those in mine tailings.
