PhD position available at MEDIS University Clermont Auvergne (COL-RES ITN project)

Colonization resistance: training & research towards microbiome derived solutions to foodborne disease Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), Innovative Training Networks (ITN)

Job offer: COL_RES PhD position
Host university: Université Clermont Auvergne, Clermont-Ferrand, France
Host laboratory : MEDIS (Microbiologie, Environnement Digestif et Santé), Clermont-Ferrand, France
PhD awarding institution: Université Clermont Auvergne, Clermont-Ferrand, France
Total duration: 36 months               
Starting date: September, 1st 2021                              


The COL_RES Innovative Training Network (ITN) comprises a world-leading network of investigators that will examine the mechanisms by which the gut microbiota protects against serious foodborne pathogens (Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, Citrobacter rodentium and Campylobacter) and lead to the identification of next generation probiotics that can potentially protect against multiple infectious agents. The project will utilize a system biology-based approach by exploiting existing research models at world-leading laboratories combined with phageomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics to generate multi-omics data that will uncover both pathogen-specific and shared mechanisms by which the gut microbiota protects against foodborne pathogens. This EU project gathers six european partners with worldwide recognition in the fields of gut microbiology and enteric diseases: University College Cork / Ireland, Imperial College London / United Kingdom, Charite Universitaetsmedizin Berlin / Germany, Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich / Switzerland, FUNDACIO EURECAT / Spain and MEDIS from Université Clermont Auvergne / France. In this project, eight early stage researchers (ESRs) will be recruited. Every ESR will work on an independent research project with an allied training program tailored to the career goals of the candidate. Each ESR will each undertake two periods of secondment to other academic or industry institutes.
