Job opening

PhD position on Genomics and Bioinformatics in a EuroXanth-associated Project

This is to announce a new PhD position on Genomics and Bioinformatics at the School of Life Sciences in Wädenswil (Switzerland), close to the Lake of Zürich.

Your project will investigate the re-emerging plant pathogen Xanthomonas hortorum. The aim is to study genomic diversity of the different pathovars within the X. hortorum species-level clade in order to design novel diagnostic methods and to study the molecular base of host-specificity of the individual pathovars. Your work will combine microbiology, MALDI-TOF MS identification, genome sequencing, comparative genomics and innovative computer analyses. You are expected to actively shape the direction of your project and should be highly motivated, creative and curious. Your research could make a significant boost towards rapid identification and understanding of this re-emerging plant pathogen.
