Open positions at the NCCR Microbiomes

If you are interested in working on one of the projects of the NCCR Microbiomes, please email us at contact@nccr-microbiomes.ch with a short description of your background and areas of interest.

MD-PhD student position at CHUV Lausanne/University of Lausanne.

A PhD student position is available in the Guery and Greub labs at Lausanne University Hospital CHUV. The successful candidate will build a translational project starting with a cohort study to investigate Clostridioides difficile infection, and participate in the analysis using a large panel of techniques including NGS, culturomics, flowcytometry, analysis of the phagome, and metabolomics. An MD degree and French level B2 are required for this position. For more information please email us at contact@nccr-microbiomes.ch

MD-PhD student position at CHUV Lausanne/University of Lausanne.

The Guery and Greub labs are looking for a PhD student to join their teams at Lausanne University Hospital CHUV. The translational PhD project will start with a cohort study to investigate Salmonella typhimurium infection. The successful candidate will build the study and participate in the analysis using a variety of techniques including NGS, culturomics, flow cytometry, analysis of the phagome, and metabolomics. An MD degree and French level B2 are required for this position. If you want to know more about this project, please email us at contact@nccr-microbiomes.ch

PhD student position at the Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne, in collaboration with ETH Zurich.

PhD student position available in the Sanders’ group at the University of Lausanne on the role of the soil microbiome in determining plant responses to the mycorrhizal symbiosis using experimental approaches. Research will build on previous work in the group showing that mycorrhizal fungi shape soil microbial communities. The project aims to understand how the soil microbiome influences how the plant responds to inoculation with mycorrhizal fungi.

Scientific software/web developer at the Microbiome Research Laboratory at ETH Zurich.

The Microbiome Research Laboratory at ETH Zürich, headed by Prof. Shinichi Sunagawa, is looking for a Scientific software/web developer to lead the full-stack development of a microbiome database of meta-, and in the long run, multi-omics data sets that are publicly available and/or generated by several projects, including projects within the NCCR Microbiomes.

Postdoc position at the Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne.

A postdoc position is available in the Sanders’ group at the University of Lausanne to study how the structure and composition of soil microbiomes influence plant responses to inoculation with mycorrhizal fungi. Research will build on previous work in the group showing that mycorrhizal fungi shape soil microbial communities. The successful candidate will use experimental approaches to analyze the role of the soil microbiome in determining plant responses to the mycorrhizal symbiosis.
