OFFER DESCRIPTION

-The successful candidate will be in charge of bio-informatic analysis of “meta-transcriptomic“ data of microbial samples obtained from incubation experiments according to two scenarios that mimic atmospheric conditions (winter night and summer day). Extracted metabolites and mRNAs will be analyzed by metabolomics, fluxomics and transcriptomics in collaboration with project partners. She/he will also participate in analysis of metagenomic datasets from atmospheric samples (cloud water, rain, aerosols or snow), from field campaings in particular at puy de Dôme (France).

The METACLOUD project (https://drv.uca.fr/ingenieriebr-de-projets/projets-finances/projets-en-c...) aims to improve fundamental knowledge of the cloud ecosystem, chemically and biologically, and more specifically to evaluate the potential role of microbial metabolism in the chemistry of single carbon atom compounds (C1). This will be achieved by obtaining “meta-genomics” and “meta-transcriptomics” data on the metabolic networks of the cloud microbiome and their modulation by contrasting atmospheric scenarios. The resulting dynamic picture of the cloud microbiome, in particular regarding the gene repertoire for potential C1 utilisation pathways, will be integrated in a new model of atmospheric chemistry.

The recruted candidate will join Stéphane Vuilleumier group, AIME (Microbial adaptations and Interactions in the environment, website: https://aime.unistra.fr) in the host laboratory GMGM (Molecular Genetics, Genomics, Microbiology). It is a CNRS laboratory associated with the University of Strasbourg in France . The AIME team includes 2 teachers of the University of Strasbourg and two CNRS researchers, one technician, and 5 PhD students. The recruted candidate will be implied in the supervision of a PhD student.
Research at CNRS and at University of Strasbourg covers all areas of science, and encourages interdisciplinary and international collaborations. Located at the heart of Europe in a trinational region of dynamic economic activity, Strasbourg is a pioneer city in terms of environmental awareness in France, and a very pleasant place to live in.
