Postdoc in Molecular Microbial Ecology and Novel Microbes (P21719)

At the Faculty of Engineering and Science, Department of Chemistry and Bioscience a position as Postdoc in Molecular Microbial Ecology and Novel Microbes is open for appointment in the period 01.10.17-30.09.20 or soon hereafter. The Department of Chemistry and Bioscience consists of five sections of which three are situated in Aalborg with research and teaching in Biotechnology, Applied Chemistry and Biology & Environmental Science, one in Copenhagen on Sustainable Biotechnology and one in Esbjerg on Chemical Engineering. The position is located within the section of Biotechnology with working place in Aalborg.   

Job description

The Center has approx. 30 young scientist working with structure and function of microbial communities, primarily related to environmental biotechnology. The Center has state of the art equipment within DNA sequencing (Illumina and Oxford Nanopore), proteomics, metabolomics and advanced microscopy including Raman microspectroscopy. The post.doc. position is part of ongoing research to discover and describe novel diversity in environmental samples and understand their physiology, interactions and ecology. We have developed a novel method to retrieve millions of full-length 16S rRNA gene sequences, so discovery of novel diversity in various ecosystems will be in focus. Novel and hitherto undescribed phyla will be further investigated by retrieving full genomes and by single-cell microbiology.

We seek a young scientist with strong background and proven expertise in molecular microbial ecology.

Limited teaching within the area can be expected, but also in other study programmes at the University.
