Department of Veterinary Disease Biology (IVS), Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences (SUND) at the University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship commencing 1st September 2015 or soon thereafter. The application deadline is 15 June 2015.
The project is a 3-year Marie Curie PhD project concerning the regulation of virulence by carbohydrates in the human, pathogen Listeria monocytogenes. For this bacterium carbohydrates play a central role in the transition from the external environment to the human host.The project will address the mechanism behind this adaptation and the impact it has on the bacterium as a foodborne pathogen. The project is part of the Horizon 2020 funded European training network List-MAPS (Training and research in Listeria monocytogenes adaptation through proteomic and transcriptome deep sequencing analysis) and will thus be cooperating with national and international partners within the area of understanding the ecology of L. monocytogenes to decipher the transcriptional regulatory circuitry that drives adaptation and virulence of L. monocytogenes from farm to fork. You can read more about the 11 PhD student positions in the List-MAPS project here:https://www6.dijon.inra.fr/umragroecologie_eng/Employments-training
The Marie Curie PhD scholarship provides a three-year generous stipend including mobility allowance, training and stay at the different partners as well as a tuition fee.
