You will develop novel approaches for the extraction of biomolecules from marine sedimentary samples. You will build on existing, world-wide distinctive approaches for the concomitant biomolecular extraction from single, unique samples developed in the Systems Ecology group at the University of Luxembourg.
In close collaboration with the consortium members, you will define how samples collected from the field will be processed for downstream high-throughput omics measurements and generate extracts for use within the PROSPECTOMICS project.
You should be an early-stage researcher without a PhD and in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of your research career, measured from the date when you obtained the degree, which would formally entitle you to embark on a doctorate.
You should have graduated in the field of biology, chemistry, or related fields M.Sc. required. You should be familiar with the extraction of at least one of the project’s central biomolecule types, i.
e., DNA, RNA, and / or proteins. Moreover, you should have a well-structured and autonomous working style, as well as good organizational and communication skills.
Fluency in written and spoken English is a must, German and / or French is a plus.
