We, the research group led by Wolfram Moebius, are looking for a junior or senior postdoc to join us at the Living Systems Institute at the University of Exeter. The role is part of the project ‘Phage host range evolution in spatially structured microbiomes’, funded by BBSRC and NSF/BIO. The aim of the project is to understand how the spatial organisation of bacterial cells within a biofilm and the heterogeneity of the cells’ metabolic state within the biofilm affect bacteriophage host range evolution. You will work with the model system of bacteriophage T7 and E. coli. In parallel, you will develop and run simulations to describe the dynamics of phage evolution within the biofilm, aiming for a theoretical description of phage evolution. This project is a collaboration with the groups of Prof. William Harcombe (University of Minnesota) and Prof. Carey Nadell (Dartmouth College) in the United States. The project thus offers plenty of opportunities for collaboration and a research visit to these groups.
