The Derome Laboratory has an exceptional opportunity available for two PhD students to join our research team:
Project BeeProbio3: High throughput and integrative insect model to model the interplay of stress factors controlling host-microbiota interactions at the interface of health/disease.
Project ZEBRIGHTmicro: Optimizing an instant, high throughput and integrative vertebrate model to decipher the interplay of factors controlling host-microbiota interactions along development at the interface of health/disease.
Candidates must apply before Aug 30th, 2019 (send CV, cover letter and two letters of support to email@example.com). More information in the "Work with us" section or the links above.
It overviews state-of-the-art knowledge on free-living and host-associated microbiota and their importance on both fish health and the long-term sustainability of fish farming. It also addresses high throughput techniques to monitor those host-microbiota interactions. Applications that resulted from microbiota monitoring studies (e.g. improve water quality, prevent opportunistic infections and improving fish performance) are also discussed.
