Under general direction, incumbents can be a PhD candidate or in a Master's degree program and able to perform at a high level.
The Benthic Microbial Fuel Cell (BMFC) system is a groundbreaking technology that supports the Navy. The Navy seeks to improve the microbial fuel cell technologies to obtain more power production in deep sea and cold environments. With the use of BMFC, the Navy pursues to improve efficiencies to add in supplemental power sources.
Studying microbial data with the BMFC Team and assist in setting up and monitoring experiments. The student will research, analyze data, model, and test optimal environmental conditions for electrogenic bacteria of interest and their effect on power production in BMFCs.
Reviewing, analyzing and documenting specific operational procedures, and background literature research.
Designing, modeling, fabrication, testing, and analysis: exercising and testing models
utilizing simulation, emulation, numerical and statistical analyses techniques,
programing, and standard test and evaluation. Student will need to plot and model data
for electrical, environmental, genetic, or metabolic testing results
