Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:

The Department of Biotechnology and Biomedicine (DTU Bioengineering) at the Technical University of Denmark is offering a PhD scholarship within the Bacterial Interactions and Evolution group in the Section for Microbial and Chemical Ecology. The PhD project is part of the Center for Microbial Secondary Metabolites (CeMiSt).

CeMiSt is one of 10 new Centers of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. The Center opened on 1 January 2018 and will run for six years with an option for a four-year extension. The Center is based at the Technical University of Denmark and hosted by the Department of Biotechnology and Biomedicine (DTU Bioengineering). Three DTU departments and 10 senior faculty participate in the Center and bigger than 15 PhD students and postdocs will be hired. The purpose of CeMiSt is to unravel the biological role of microbial secondary metabolites in natural microbiological communities. The Center is led by Professor Lone Gram.

We are seeking a candidate to study the secondary metabolites of Bacilli using molecular and population biology tools in the research field of microbial ecology and evolution. You will be involved in a fun PhD project on microbial natural products, with strong international connections, productive scientific environment, and work-life balance.

Responsibilities and tasks

Your PhD project will contribute to our understanding of the role of secondary metabolites on microbial interactions and evolution including bacterial biofilms. You will explore the impact of secondary metabolites on microbial community assembly in the soil and use transposon sequencing, among others, to understand the function of natural products on bacterial physiology and development.

Experience within the following areas of microbiology will be an advantage:

  • microbial secondary metabolites
  • microbial ecology and evolution, population biology
  • molecular bacteriology
  • Transposon sequencing
  • fluorescence microscopy

Qualifications

Candidates should have a master's degree in engineering or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the master's degree in engineering.

Approval and Enrolment

The scholarship for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes of DTU. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see the DTU PhD Guide. http://www.dtu.dk/english/Education/PhD/Rules/PhDguide

Assessment

The assessment of the applicants will be made by Professor Ákos T. Kovacs.

We offer

DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and an academic freedom tempered by responsibility.

Salary and appointment terms

The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The period of employment is 3 years.

The expected start date is January 2019.

  • A letter motivating the application (cover letter), including contact details for 2 referees
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Grade transcripts and BSc/MSc diploma
  • Excel sheet with translation of grades to the Danish grading system (see guidelines and Excel spreadsheet here) http://www.dtu.dk/english/Education/phd/Applicant/Pre_acceptance-1-

Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master's degree, but cannot begin before having received it.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, race, disability, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.

The Center for Microbial Secondary Metabolites aims to establish what effect microbial secondary metabolites have on other microorganisms in their natural environment. We have traditionally perceived them as 'competition substances', but in natural environments they are rarely produced in quantities of antibiotic effect. The Center's hypothesis is that secondary metabolites constitute a network of signal molecules that directly affect gene expression, behaviour, and metabolism of the microorganisms and thus play a decisive role in the composition and function of microbiological societies. We will explore this in an interdisciplinary collaboration with the use of sequence-based, analytical-chemical, molecular, bioinformatic, and classic microbiological methods.

The Department of Biotechnology and Biomedicine (DTU Bioengineering) conducts research, educates future bio-engineers, provides scientific advice and innovate within the areas of microbiology, biochemistry, biotechnology and biomedicine. The research at DTU Bioengineering is at the highest international level and focuses on the societal and scientific challenges within the field. Research is conducted within three main areas: Microbial ecology and physiology, Industrial biotechnology and cell factories, and Biomedicine and health. The department has extensive collaboration with national and international research units and industries. DTU Bioengineering has approx. 180 employees, of which 2/3 is scientific staff. The department is located at DTU Lyngby Campus.

DTU is a technical university providing internationally leading research, education, innovation and scientific advice. Our staff of 6,000 advance science and technology to create innovative solutions that meet the demands of society, and our 11,200 students are being educated to address the technological challenges of the future. DTU is an independent academic university collaborating globally with business, industry, government and public agencies.
