Do you have a passion for inspiring people through communications and creative graphics? Are you looking for your next career opportunity? Here is the job for you! The Biogas Research Team (BRT) is seeking a Junior Communications Specialist.

About us:

The Biogas Research Team (BRT), led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hynek Roubík, is a part of the Department of Sustainable Technologies and the Faculty of Tropical AgriSciences (FTA). The main objective of the BRT is to determine the real impact of small biogas plants (both in developing and developed countries) on the environment, climate change and society and to contribute crucially to the current global debate on small biogas technology. Our team is covering what we call the whole research life cycle – which, from our point of view, means that we do everything from feasibility studies, system studies, technology development, and laboratory-scale research towards implementation. Furthermore, we continue with socio-economic studies and implications, gender studies, and environmental studies. The team also broadens its portfolio by embarking on different routes that expand its scientific and social horizon. A few examples range from Open Science research through the OSIRIS project, organising multidisciplinary student conferences such as the 4th International Multidisciplinary Conference for Young Researchers (MCYR), developing the AgriSciences platform to developing mobile laboratories that detect infectious diseases through our mobiLAB initiative,  and much more.
