Within the MIND project, there is a PhD opportunity at SCK•CEN (Mol, Belgium). The aim of this project is to unravel the impact of microbial processes on cement in repository-like conditions and on bitumen (derivatives) at a high, cement-derived, pH. The expected outcome of both parts of the project is a detailed characterisation of microbial […]
A new section has been introduced on the website – Exchange Opportunities. In this section you will find the exchange opportunities in microbiology and nuclear waste that is available within the MIND-project. You will reach the new section via a new headline in the topmenu. Exchange opportunities
Miguel Angel Ruiz Fresneda, PhD student working in the MIND Project, was awarded by Carl- Zeiss Company with the excellent presentation at the 10th International Biometals Symposium 2016 in Dresden, Germany. He presented the results obtained in the MIND Project. Biometals certificate and abstract (pdf)
The course is initiated by two pan-European programmes, Petrus-III and Microbiology In Nuclear waste Disposal (MIND). One important aim of the MIND project, granted by European Commission, is to raise awareness of the relevance of microbial issues in otherwise typically abiotic fields of ex-pertise, and to dissipate the knowledge gained in the MIND project to […]
The EU-project MIND (Microbiology In Nuclear waste Disposal) will have its first Project Annual Meeting (PAM) which is scheduled to take place in Granada on the 2nd to 4th of May at the University of Granada. The meeting include a pre-meeting workshop covering key technical aspects of working with nucleic acids and clays intended as […]
The Nuclear Research Centre in Belgium (SCK•CEN) is looking for PhD candidates. The topic is microbial processes in geological disposal of radioactive waste. The aim of the project is to unravel the impact of microbial processes on cement in repository-like conditions and on bitumen (derivatives) at a high, cement-derived, pH. The two parts of the […]
The HADES URL is the main research infrastructure for studies on geological disposal in Belgium. The Belgian URL is situated at the Mol nuclear area and is located in the Boom Clay formation at a depth of approximately 225 meters.
