8 PhD Student -1 Postdoctoral Researcher Positions - MICROH : Microbiomes in One Health

MICROH, which stands for “Microbiomes in One Health”, is a competitive, interdisciplinary PhD training programme, sup- ported by the PRIDE doctoral research funding scheme of the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR). MICROH aims to study interactions within and between microbiomes in relation 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.

            By tackling frontier research questions of immediate public health relevance, the research-intensive programme responds to the unmet need of training the next generation of microbiome scientists in an interdisciplinary environment covering integra- tion and analysis of multi-omics data, as well as basic and translational biomedical knowledge, and its practical application to the diagnosis of diseases and ultimately their treatment. The programme includes transferable skills training, support in career development, lectures and teaching by international experts and annual PhD symposia.PhD candidates will conduct their research projects either at the LCSB, LSRU, PHYMS-RU, LIH, LNS, IBBL and/or LIST. A number of projects involve collaborations with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory – European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), the University of Kent (Kent Fungal Group) and the University of Strasbourg (UMR7156 UdS – CNRS) as well as a private biomedical laboratory in Luxembourg, Laboratoires réunis. All PhD candidates will be enrolled in the Doctoral School in Science and Engineering at the University of Luxembourg.
