One Early Stage Researcher position within a Horizon 2020 EU-funded Marie Sklodowska Curie European Training Network is available. It will be located at the research unit UMR Agroecology, INRA/Université de Bourgogne, Dijon, France. The project involves multiple international academic and private participants, and seeks to develop a better understanding of the ecology of Listeria monocytogenes through a systems biology approach. In accordance with the rules of this programme, candidates must not have worked or studied more than 12 months in France within the last 3 years. Interested candidates must be in the first 4 years of their researcher career with significant experience in microbiology, microbial ecology and/or transcriptomics.
Research project : Investigation of the adaptive strategies of L. monocytogenes in soil/plants mesocosms
The project will focus on the response of L. monocytogenes to the complex microbial communities during survival in soil and plant rhizosphere. This will include RNA-Seq and mutagenesis approaches in order to explore the mechanisms triggered by the edaphic conditions and to characterise phenotypes under these environmental conditions.
Global transcriptomic response during adaptation to soil and plant rhizosphere. Characterisation of the response to soil microbiote. Evaluation of the role of the biotic environment on the fate of L. monocytogenes in soil.
