Default PhD position oral metagenomics - Amsterdam

PhD position: Metagenome of the healthy oral ecosystem

Academic Centre for Dentistry Amsterdam - Netherlands

Thesis advisor: Prof. W. Crielaard

I am looking for an enthousiastic candidate for a PhD position on the oral microbiome at the Academic Centre for Dentistry in Amsterdam.

In this project, the PhD fellow will use next generation sequencing techniques to gain a comprehensive insight in the functional composition of the oral microbial ecosystem, and the interactions between the microbial oral community and the human host. This will be performed through amplicon and whole genome sequence analysis of samples obtained from clinical evaluation and intervention studies. Using existing bioinformatics tools, sequence data will be related to data available in literature and public databases, integrated with the outcomes of clinical, immunological and biochemical tests and used for further health biomarker selection.

The candidate will be part of a multidisciplinary effort aiming to explore the oral ecosystem and to identify processes involved in maintaining oral health status and will work in close collaboration with clinicians, scientists and PhD-fellows from other subprojects within the project.

The project is funded through a public - private partnership (TIFN) involving leading industrial partners from the food and personal care industry, and three academic partners.

See for details:
