A PhD position in the ecology of Aerobic Anoxygenic Phototrophic (AAP) bacteria is open at the Laboratory of Anoxygenic Phototrophs, Centre ALGATECH, the Institute of Microbiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Trebon, Czech Republic.
Two positions (1 postdoc, 1 PhD student) are open in the Department of Aquatic Microbial Ecology, Institute of Hydrobiology, České Budějovice, Czech Republic to study the evolution of genome streamlining in freshwater microbes using high-throughput isolation, comparative genomics and experimental approaches.
The research project will investigate the deep biosphere present in terrestrial crystalline rock fracture systems. The project will use ‘multi omics’ on biofilms, activity measurements, single amplified genome interrogations of attached cells, and electron microscopy visualizations to investigate mechanisms for growth and survival in deep terrestrial biosphere microorganisms.
Postdoctoral opportunity at Stanford University to examine how hydrological perturbation shapes the structure and function of subsurface N-cycling microbial communities.
Join us to test and develop hypotheses related to the role of thioester chemistry in nascent life and the chemical networks that proceeded living systems.

The Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM) at the School of Mathematics and Natural Sciences invites applications for the position of a Professorship (W3) in Benthic Microbiology commencing as soon as possible.
We are searching for a postdoc with experience in an established model system to help develop molecular genetic tools for labyrinthulomycetes.
This position is part of an ongoing project in the Moe laboratory at the University of Kentucky focused on production of chemicals through microbial biotransformation of lignin-derived compounds. The successful candidate will use culture-dependent and culture-independent techniques to probe plant-associated microbial communities to identify and characterize microbes and/or genes with the desired metabolic capabilities. Additional work will focus on the genetics and biochemistry of the microbial biotransformations, as well as directed evolution of genes for enhanced substrate conversion. There will be opportunities for developing additional projects within the framework of plant-microbe interactions and microbial biotechnology.

The world’s increasing demand for food generates a powerful economic imperative for innovation in food production technology. Our novel system was discovered through our previous research in New Zealand, and has the potential to create several new products for the global food supply chain.
Our research revealed that (a) symbiotic microbes in the hindgut of NZ seaweed-eating fishes convert seaweed and atmospheric nitrogen into compounds of nutritional value to fish, (b) these hindgut microbes provide an important source of dietary protein to the fish, and (c) these novel organisms can be grown in culture. Culturing these microbial communities to bioconvert abundant and sustainable seaweeds would thus address four global problems: (a) the economic and environmental costs of feeding capture fish to cultured fish, (b) the unsuitability of many terrestrial protein sources for aquaculture feeds due to the lack of critical nutrients and the presence of compounds inhibitory to digestion, (c) current roadblocks to using abundant seaweed biomass to produce aquaculture feeds, and (d) the growing demand for sustainable agricultural fertiliser. This is a completely novel idea on an international level, as we have only just discovered and begun to understand the microbial and physiological processes in NZ fish underpinning it.
Over the next five years our MBIE funded programme develops and broadens this research into a number of economic opportunities for NZ and beyond. These will be accomplished by developing the culture technology and methodology to maximize the production of desired fermentation end products; single cell protein for animal and aquaculture feeds, organic fertilisers that will decrease the need for more harmful forms currently used and as a food source for black soldier fly larvae, which have growing global importance as feed components for aquaculture and poultry.
