Postdoctoral Position in Microbiome Research

Postdoctoral Position in Microbiome Research

EPFL - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne

Lausanne, Switzerland

Your mission:

In the framework of the NCCR Microbiomes, a postdoctoral position is available to complement the existing team studying the microbiome of granular biofilm involved in wastewater treatment. The team is composed of one scientific collaborator, two postdoctoral researcher, one PhD student, two technicians, and three technician apprentices. We study the transition from biomass in suspension to granular biofilms in well-defined bioreactors operated as sequencing batch reactors. We apply a multi-omics approach combined with genome-scale metabolic models of the main populations involved.

Main duties and responsibilities include:

  • Performing experiments to assess gene expression with different techniques and/or metabolic activity during a reactor batch cycle;
  • Performing analyses on the gene expression and metabolomics data.

Your profile:

We search candidates with a track record on the analyses of gene expression (e.g. (meta-)transcriptomics or (meta-)proteomics), or on the analyses of metabolic activity with metabolomics approaches, and with solid bioinformatic and statistical analysis skills. Experience with applying these techniques to microbial communities would be an asset.

The qualified candidate should have a PhD and able to work independently, but also in collaboration since this study is a team effort.
