Position: Doctoral Researcher, Cell and Molecular Biology
Institution: University of Jyväskylä
Location: Jyväskylä, Central Finland, Finland
Duties: The project will explore how the mucosal environment influences bacteriophage infectivity and the bacterial resistance mechanisms against phages, and how age-associated changes in mucosal surfaces influence phage-mucosa interaction. Model pathogens used in these experiments are Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Streptococcus mutans and Flavobacterium columnare. The Doctoral candidate will perform phage-bacterium interaction studies in laboratory using traditional microbiological methods and in vitro cell cultures, and in vivo, using a zebra fish model. Basic skills in microbiological methods and/or cell and molecular biology are needed. During the project, the Doctoral Researcher will acquire comprehensive knowledge and experience in microbiological and molecular biology methods, as well as dissemination of research findings e.g. in the form of scientific publications and seminar presentations
Requirements: Master’s degree, or be about to obtain Master’s degree, in a relevant field; Experience in microbiology (working with phages or other viruses) and/or cell culture; Capability of conducting independent research, solid in English language and scientific writing
