  招聘简介:瑞士伊瓦格环境毒理学系博士后职位

  英文原文:

  The position is part of our research on aquatic biofilms. Phototrophic biofilms (i.e. periphyton) play a fundamental role in stream functioning. Microorganisms forming biofilms are targets for chemicals, which can lead to the alterations of their intra- and interspecific interactions. Yet, most of the available ecotoxicological data are descriptive thus far, focusing on integrative endpoints that basically consider the community as a black box. In order to comprehend and in the future be able to predict impacts of chemicals on periphyton communities, there is a need to identify by which molecular mechanisms chemicals impact the microorganisms within the community and how the community responds.

  The postdoctoral researcher will be involved in investigating cellular processes in periphyton at the transcriptome level (i.e. regulation of gene expression), upon exposure to model herbicides, and whether such responses can be linked to community functional and structural alterations. This will allow identifying toxicity and adaptive pathways that are activated to maintain homeostasis and resistance to toxic stress and linking a molecular initiating event to an outcome on functions of the community.

  The period of appointment for the Postdoctoral researcher is 24 months, and earliest starting date is October 2019.

  We are looking for a postdoctoral scientist holding a PhD with a solid background in molecular biology and experience in transcriptomics and bioinformatics. The successful candidate is expected to take initiative for the planning and execution of the experiments, and to thrive in interdisciplinary research. Familiarity with microbial communities and/or phototrophic organisms would be a valuable asset.
