Fellow in the group: opportunity to join the laboratory of Microbial Biotechnology at University of Insubria

Opportunity to join the laboratory of Microbial Biotechnology at University of Insubria

Where: we are located in Varese, Italy, as part of the Department of Biotechnology and Life Sciences (DBSV).

Lab position: 1-year fellow in the group of Microbial Biotechnology, working on the bioprospecting of microbial communities coming from polluted urban environments, with the goal to discover novel metabolites with antibiotic activity. In particular, the project includes the isolation of microorganisms, their cultivation and the high-throughput screening of microbial extracts to detect promising antimicrobial activities, followed by the purification, dereplication, and structural/biological characterization of the corresponding molecules. Additionally, this culture-dependent approach could be integrated with metagenomics analyses to assess the biosynthetic potential of the microbial communities.

Supervisor: Prof. Flavia Marinelli

About the role: we are looking for an enthusiastic young researcher, with a Master degree in Biotechnology, Biology, or related fields. Desirable criteria are previous experiences in isolation and cultivation of microorganisms (e.g., filamentous fungi and actinomycetes) and/or in (meta)genome mining.

Application deadline: the call will open in Summer 2024, with ideal starting date for the contract during Autumn 2024.

If you are interested or if you wish to have more info, please contact us at flavia.marinelli@uninsubria.it or f.berini@uninsubria.it
