Position: PhD Student “Modelling causal interactions between marine microbes”
Institution: Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research
Department: Department of Marine Microbiology and Biogeochemistry
Location: 't Horntje, Texel, North Holland, Netherlands
Duties: The project is concerned with elucidating marine microbial inter-species interactions based on high-throughput genomic data by applying network modelling. Microbes in the oceans, sediment and in microbiomes of higher organisms, form communities which keep the element and nutrient cycles in the seas and on land running. Different microorganisms have different metabolic capabilities. The product of one species can be the substrate for another. Besides dependencies based on individual nutrients, more complex interactions, such as symbiosis, predator-prey and competition for limited resources among marine microbes, will be elucidated in this project
Requirements: We like to get into contact with a PhD student holding an MSc degree in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Computer Science, Mathematics, (Bio-)Statistics, Physics, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Microbial Ecology or related fields. You are highly organized, motivated, and fluent in oral and written English. Experience with Unix is mandatory. Candidates need to have a proven record of their bioinformatics and programming skills. Candidates with good command of R, Bash and Python are preferred. If your background is in Biology-related fields, you will need to catch up with some mathematics and statistics. The ideal candidate also has experience in the analysis of high-throughput genomic data, including metagenomic data
