ERC Consolidator Grant to combine synthetic biology with infection biology
Today the ERC announced this years' consolidator grant winners and our lab is one of them!
The project will use innovative approaches for infection biology by combining synthetic biology and quantitative single cell biology including single cell RNA-seq, CRISPRi, engineered bistable switches and microfluidics. We will try to reveal the molecular mechanisms underlying cell-to-cell variability and its importance in virulence and antibiotic resistance.
Initially, we are looking for 2 PhD students and a technician but applications for post-doc positions are also welcome. The start date is flexible but not before November 2018. Useful skills and interests are in single cell biology, infection biology, computational biology, bioinformatics or synthetic biology. But generally, all creative people should send an inquiry to the lab.
