We are looking for an ambitious PhD student with a great interest in the ecophysiology of foodborne pathogens. This project, funded by VLAG Graduate School, aims to assess the ecophysiological behaviour of Campylobacter in the environment to elucidate how persistence of this pathogen outside animal reservoirs contributes to transmission to the human host and its pathogenicity. Campylobacter is a notorious pathogen that significantly contributes to the food-associated disease burden worldwide. This project will identify specific genomic and phenotypic features that affect environmental-mediated transmission, population structure and virulence of Campylobacter. This project uses a systems biology approach to unravel Campylobacter's metabolic repertoires and molecular adaptation mechanisms with a focus on CRISPR-Cas systems, and will combine this with pathogenicity testing to unravel to which extent environmental persistence is linked to levels of host association and human epidemiology. This project is a collaboration between the Laboratory of Food Microbiology and Laboratory of Microbiology at Wageningen University and the Centre for Infectious Disease Control at RIVM.
We are looking for an ambitious, enthusiastic team player and motivated scientist with:
The Laboratory of Food Microbiology at the Wageningen University studies both positive (fermentation) and negative aspects (spoilage, disease) of micro-organisms in association with food and food products. The knowledge derived from our studies improves the safety and quality of food from primary production to consumption. The Laboratory of Food Microbiology is part of the Agrotechnology & Food Sciences Group of Wageningen University and Research.
The Agrotechnology & Food Sciences Group is part of Wageningen University & Research where fundamental and applied sciences complement each other. As an important European player, we carry out top-level research and work alongside authoritative partners within the international business world as well as the government on "Healthy food in a biobased society". We have a crucial role in innovations within the market. Entrepreneurship and professionalism are what define us. In short, we are an interesting, international employer of stature.
Wageningen University and Research
Delivering a substantial contribution to the quality of life. That's our focus - each and every day. Within our domain, healthy food and living environment, we search for answers to issues affecting society - such as sustainable food production, climate change and alternative energy. Of course, we don't do this alone. Every day, 5000 people work on 'the quality of life', turning ideas into reality, on a global scale.
Could you be one of these people? We give you the space you need.
