    Title:  LCA Postdoctoral position

    Institution:  Montpellier SupAgro INRA, Laboratoire de Biotechnologie de l'Environnement,  http://www.elsa-lca.org/

    Location:  Montpellier, France

    Deadline:  October 20, 2014


    The Laboratory of environmental biotechnology (LBE – http://www4.montpellier.inra.fr/Narbonne) seeks a candidate with a PhD for an 18 months post-doctoral position  (starting end of 2014) in the field of Life Cycle assessment (LCA). The position is hosted in the Elsa group (www.elsa-lca.org where 30 researchers and PhD students are working on LCA) and will be physically on the SupAgro campus, Montpellier, South of France. Salary depends on seniority as agreed by the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (Gross salary: 2300-2800 €/month).

    The successful candidate will work on the Surfact’Alg project, funded by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (Ademe). This research project involves two companies, a technical centre and two academic partners. Its aim is the development of new surfactant production systems from seaweed biomass.

    As it was underlined by some authors, environmental assessments of emerging technologies and new industrial systems are facing a lack of data, thus need to use extrapolations and be compared to impacts of mature and operational solutions. This post-doctoral position is dedicated to the design of a generic approach to deal with the question of scale-up of emerging technologies in LCA. Methodological developments can be applied through several research projects, focused on biobased products from algae (micro and macroalgae).

    A good level in LCA is mandatory. Skills in process engineering, and to a lesser degree industrial engineering, are also expected. Knowledge of algae and/or biobased product is an advantage.

    Candidates should send CV, publications list, and application letter before October 20th to Dr. Arnaud Hélias, Associate professor, Montpellier SupAgro (arnaud.helias@supagro.inra.fr).

In the FORMIT project (www.eu-formit.eu) we are responsible for the estimation of the environmental Life Cycle impact and carbon mitigation potential of the European forests and wood sector, considering also end-of-life management, material and energy substitution as well as wood recycling. In the PROteINSECT project (www.proteinsect.eu), applying Life Cycle thinking tools on sustainability’s three dimensions, we are investigating the application potential and sustainability of insect-derived proteins to be used as novel feedstuff in monogastric livestock and aquaculture.
    Responsibilities
    The offered post-doctoral position includes the following responsibilities and tasks:
     Perform the research described in aforementioned projects and provide data and analyses to consortium partners
     Contribute to the development and improvement of the Time and Space explicit Life Cycle Assessment (TiSpa-LCA) methodology being applied in FORMIT
     Contribute to methodological development of merging environmental Life Cycle Assessment (env. LCA), Social Life Cycle Assessment (S-LCA) and Life Cycle Costing (LCC) to an overarching Life Cycle Sustainability assessment (LCSA)
     Daily management and follow up of aforementioned projects (project meetings, project reports on milestones and deliverables, project planning)
     Guide and assist two PhD students in their research within the respective projects
     Possibly supervise some M.Sc. and B.Sc. dissertations in the frame of the projects.
    Further it is expected that the candidate is prepared to contribute to the overall development of the research group, by contributions to relevant project proposals, participation in divisional seminars, and publishing papers in international peer-reviewed journals.


    Contract duration
    22 month with the possibility of an extension, starting the 1st December 2014.


    Profile
    The candidate has extensive experience in the application of Life Cycle Thinking methodology and is familiar with state-of-the art LCA software and methodological concepts. Modeling skills (Python or similar programming languages) as well as GIS experience are an asset. We expect the candidate to have a strong and proven research experience. Ideally, the candidate has a background in engineering, environmental sciences or equivalent research fields.
    We expect the applicants to have sufficient project management experience and solid organizational skills. As both projects are conducted in international consortia, proficiency in written and spoken English, as well as good communication skills are key skills.


    Interested?
    For more information please contact Prof. dr. ir. Bart Muys, tel.: +32 16 32 97 26, mail:
