PhD Position in Non-target Microbiome Metabolomics

The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research University. Luxembourg is a dynamic, multicultural country in the heart of Europe with a strong research and development base supported by important organisational resources. The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) at the University of Luxembourg, offers state-of-the-art facilities and an excellent training environment for early-stage researchers, in particular in the biomedical sciences.

Microbiomes in One Health (MICROH) is a competitive, interdisciplinary PhD training programme, supported by the PRIDE funding scheme of the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR). MICROH aims to study interactions within and between microbiomes relating to two major healthcare challenges of our time, i.e. the spread of antimicrobial resistance genes and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. MICROH bridges microbiology and big data analytics in a structured doctoral training environment. 

Your Role

The Enzymology & Metabolism and Environmental Cheminformatics Research Groups at LCSB are seeking a PhD Candidate to become part of the MICROH PhD training programme, on the topic of “Dark Matter, the Exposome and the Microbiome”. The PhD will be co-supervised by Drs. Carole Linster and Emma Schymanski, LCSB, in collaboration with other topic leaders in MICROH.
