Doctoral Researcher: Biology, Chemistry (PROSPECTOMICS) 712 views

Doctoral researcher: PROSPECTOMICS, University of Luxembourg

(PhD student in Biology, Chemistry) focusing on the development of biomolecular extraction techniques for meta-omics high-throughput experiments.

AREA: Meta-omic analyses of marine sedimentary samples

Description

In the EU-funded FET project PROSPECTOMICS, we aim to meet these challenges by paving the way for completely novel approaches to hydrocarbon prospecting. The project will use a meta-omics (metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, and metaproteomics) approach in combination with Geochemistry, Microbiology, and Machine Learning to achieve this aim.

Responsibilities

  1. Develop novel approaches for the extraction of biomolecules from marine sedimentary samples.
  2. Build on existing, world-wide distinctive approaches for the concomitant biomolecular extraction from single, unique samples developed in the Systems Ecology group.
  3. In close collaboration with the consortium members, you will define how samples collected from the field will be processed for downstream high-throughput omics measurements and generate extracts for use within the PROSPECTOMICS project.

Qualifications / Requirements

  1. Early-stage researcher without a PhD and in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of your research career.
  2. Graduated in the field of biology, chemistry, or related fields – M.Sc. required.
  3. Familiarity with the extraction of at least one of the project’s central biomolecule types, i.e., DNA, RNA, and/or proteins.
  4. Should have a well-structured and autonomous working style, as well as good organizational and communication skills. Fluency in written and spoken English is a must, German and/or French is a plus.

Fellowship Details:

Fully funded PhD position as part of an H2020 FET grant. The opportunity to work as part of an international, interdisciplinary team. The University of Luxembourg offers competitive salaries and is an equal opportunity employer.

Fellowship Features

  1. Contract Type: 36 months initial contract (extendable if required)
  2. Work Hours: Full Time 40.0 Hours per Week
  3. Job Reference: UOL03783

Application Procedure
