PhD in Microbiology – 24 Positions

Microbial Ecology at Western University, Canada

Deadline:  June 30, 2019

An MSc or PhD position is available to investigate soil microbiomes associated with ginseng replant disease at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada.  Ginseng is the most valuable cash crop grown in Ontario, Canada, but suffers from replant disease, a type of root rot, when ginseng is re-seeded on land previously used for a crop of ginseng.  A collaborative group is investigating environmental pathology of this disease from multiple perspectives, including specific pathogens, soil biogeochemistry, and the role of co-existing microorganisms.   Specific projects in the Tai lab include investigating bacterial, protist, or nematode communities associated with the development of replant disease.

PhD on antimicrobial drug combinations

Oranization or Institute: University of Wurzburg, Germany

Deadline: June 20, 2019

A highly motivated PhD student is sought to elucidate the molecular mechanism underlying species-specificity of drug combinations against P. aeruginosa. This exciting project combines high-throughput screening of mutant libraries with detailed in-depth molecular investigation.

PhD position- Mycobacterium: Spain

Deadline: June 15,  2019

A candidate is searched to apply for a predoctoral contract (through a call from the Research Institute for Health Research from the Gregorio Marañón Hospital) at the Clinical Microbiology Service at the Gregorio Marañón Hospital (Madrid, Spain). The candidate will work on the integration of new molecular strategies based on whole genome sequencing (WGS) for the optimization of tuberculosis transmission in different socio-epidemiological scenarios.

PhD position – Antimicrobial peptides at Complutense University of Madrid

Deadline: 28 July, 2019

A position is offered for carrying out a PhD in the project “Development of new omics and molecular techniques for the identification, characterisation and synthesis of antimicrobial peptides inhibiting bacterial pathogens and those altering food-based products”

PhD Position in Non-target Microbiome Metabolomics: University of Luxumbourg

Deadline: 28 July, 2019

Microbiomes in One Health (MICROH) is a competitive, interdisciplinary PhD training programme, supported by the PRIDE funding scheme of the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR). MICROH aims to study interactions within and between microbiomes relating to two major healthcare challenges of our time, i.e. the spread of antimicrobial resistance genes and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases.

PhD Position on the metabolism of photorophic bacteria: Czech Republic

Deadline: 5 October, 2019

The PhD project focusses on the metabolism of phototrophic bacteria. Light energy from the sun drives basically all the life on Earth. Photosynthesis, the process where light energy is captured and converted in the chemical energy available for organisms, represent one of the most important biological processes.

PhD position on the microbial ecophysiology of ammonia-oxidizing archaea

Organization: University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark
Nordcee at the Department of Biology, University of Southern Denmark, is looking for a highly motivated and curiosity-driven PhD student with interest in the ecophysiology and microbial ecology of microbial key players in global element cycling.

PhD – Ecology of plant-microbe interaction

Deadline: 12 July
Organization:University of Burgundy – Franche-Comté
A 3-year PhD position is available for a motivated student showing interest on understanding the ecology of the plant-microbe association at the Agroecology Department at the French National Institute of Agricultural Research (INRA).
We are looking for a dynamic and highly-motivated PhD student who will perform innovative scientific research within the framework of integrated pest management (IPM). More specifically, we aim to improve biological control of aphids in economically important fruits and vegetables by the use of microbial attractants and repellents for the improvement of existing monitoring systems and the development of a novel, innovative management strategy.

15 PhD positions in next-generation ecosystem research

Deadline: 30 September 2019
Organization:FutureArctic ITN
A group of fifteen PhD-students will study the Forhot ecosystem in Iceland, where a natural coincidence has provided us with the exceptional opportunity to actually look into the future.
