2 PhD positions: Bioscience Engineering, Biochemistry and Biotechnology 625 views

The department Plants and Crops, unit HortiCell at Ghent University has 2 vacant PhD positions as predoctoral scientist. The selected candidate will participate in executing research in the frame of the project BIO2BIO.

About the project:
  • The BIO2BIO project operates in the field of biostimulant and biopesticide development.
  • The collaborative research project BIO2BIO between UGent, KULeuven, ILVO and VITO aims to develop biostimulants and biopesticides from organic waste streams.
  • The project is now half way and the consortium has selected one plant extract that displays biostimulant activity and another with biopesticide activity.
  • The objective is to identify the bioactive ingredients in both extracts and to valorise the selected waste stream.
  • The fractionation and chemical analysis of the extracts is the responsibility of the team of Prof. Sven Mangelinckx.
  • The candidates have to initially execute plant bioassays under supervision of several professors involved in the bio2bio project.
  • At a later stage of the project the objective is to study the molecular and biochemical mode of action.
  • This aspect requires the candidates to apply for a full PhD fellowship at a national funding agency FWO/VLAIO.

Requirements:

  • Applicant must hold Master’s in Bioscience Engineering, Biochemistry and Biotechnology or equivalent.

How to apply

  • Submit application including a CV and motivation letter to Danny.Geelen@ugent.be and Patricia.Delaere@ugent.be.
