The Faculty of Biosciences (Biovit) and the Faculty of Chemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science (KBM) at Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) has four vacant positions, funded by Novo Nordisk Fonden, the Research Council of Norway (RCN) and the ERA-Net BlueBio Cofund.

Tasks and responsibilities:
  • Generation of metagenomics datasets and population genomes that are representative of host-associated microbiomes.
  • Functional meta-omics characterization of microbiota using metabolic reconstruction and quantitative metatranscriptomics / metaproteomics.
  • Identification of key metabolic pathways using regulatory network analysis of meta-omics data generated from microbiome(s) as well as host tissues and/or metadata.


  • For PhD position: Applicant must hold M.Sc degree in microbiology/bioinformatics, with specific emphasis on functional microbial multi-omic data analysis.
  • Fluent programming skills in at least one language.
  • For Postdoctoral fellows: The main purpose of the post-doctoral position is to qualify for work in high-level scientific positions. A PhD degree is required.
