The position will facilitate a research focus on the development of new diagnostics or biomarkers of health or risk of disease based on analysis of the microbiome; exploring the mechanisms by which the microbiome may be mobilised or manipulated to promote health; ‘mining’ the microbiome for new antimicrobials, therapeutics and functional food ingredients; deciphering the role of the microbiome in brain-gut communications as well as mood regulation and cognition; and researching other microbiomes including on the human skin, and in rumens with the aim of reducing methane emissions through microbiome-based solutions.

This post-doctoral fellowship is available to a scientist from Ukraine interested in microbiome research. A PhD qualification in a discipline relevant to microbiome science such as biomedical sciences, natural sciences, agriculture / food science, or computational sciences would be a requirement. The position will be based in APC Microbiome Ireland, at University College Cork (UCC), Cork, Ireland. The offer comes with wellbeing support and free language classes available in UCC.
