PhD fellowships in Molecular Microbial Ecology

The molecular microbial ecology group seeks to recruit highly qualified candidates for PhD programs in microbiology and biotechnology within our research program in Microbial Metagenomics.

The molecular microbial ecology group seeks to recruit highly qualified candidates for PhD programs in microbiology and biotechnology within our research program in Microbial Metagenomics.
The aim of this research project is to further develop and improve the modern microbial metagenomics tools to study natural microbial communities. In this project we will use high throughput sequencing to study the composition of bacterial communities in various natural environments with great resolution.
Furthermore, the project includes studies of the presence and evolution of plasmid-borne traits in different natural habitats in order to resolve the role of the mobile gene pool in microbial adaptation. We are specifically interested in studying the effect of anthropogenic activity on the evolution and prevalence of multi resistant bacteria.
We expect that the applicants have obtained an MSc degree in biology or biochemistry, a good grasp of theoretical concepts, and some expertise in laboratory techniques used in molecular microbial ecology, DNA sequencing and bioinformatic analysis. Fluency in English is a requirement.
An assessment committee will be appointed to evaluate the applications. The final selection will be made by the supervisors, Søren J. Sørensen and Lars H. Hansen and the Head of Department, based on the recommendations of the evaluation committee. Successful candidates will then be requested to formally apply for enrolment as a PhD student at the PhD school of Science, University of Copenhagen.
Terms of appointment and payment are in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Federation of Professional Associations (AC). The starting salary for candidates with an MSc degree will be a minimum of DKK 300.174 (equivalent to EUR 40.276) per year (April 2010 level) plus pension contribution DKK 41.013 (equivalent to EUR 5503) and the possibility to negotiate wage.
The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the diversity of society and welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.
More information about the group can be found at (http://www2.bio.ku.dk/microbiology/). Further information on the project can be obtained via email to sjs@bio.ku.dk or tevision@bio.ku.dk.
Applicants are requested to submit their application by filling in relevant parts of the form "Application for PhD scholarship and enrolment to the PhD School" at http://www.science.ku.dk/phd/staff/forms/applying_forms/101025_Application_for_scholarship_and_admission.doc/. Applications should be e‐mailed as a single PDF‐file to job8@bio.ku.dk. Please include in the subject field "your name - PhD fellowships in Molecular Microbial Ecology".
In addition, a signed hardcopy of the application must be posted to ´Søren J. Sørensen´, Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, Sølvgade 83H, 1307 K Copenhagen, Denmark. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 12:00 noon Danish local time.
Applications received after the deadline, or with insufficient documentation or otherwise not complying with the above requirements, may not be considered. It is expected that the successful candidates are enrolled at the PhD School of the Faculty of Science by September 30, 2011.
