Eleven PhD positions are offered in the frame of the project INTERFUTURE- From microbial interactions to new-concept biopesticides and biofertilizers-, a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network Action. Each of these positions is for a period of 36 months starting in April – June, 2017. INTERFUTURE will train a new generation of scientists with complementary and interdisciplinary skills in Microbiology, Plant Pathology, Entomology, Organic Chemistry, Molecular Biology.

The main objectives of the research projects are:

  1. to overcome bottlenecks in bio-based products application by exploring the ecology of microbe-host interaction at the community level
  2. to improve existing microbial biofertilisers by unravelling the biology and exploiting the complementarities of nitrogen-fixing and growth-promoting bacteria
  3. to exploit natural molecules to shape plant-beneficial microflora and improve plant resilience to disease
  4. to develop novel volatile organic compounds of bacterial origin for the control of soilborne diseases
  5. to design and develop innovative insect traps and trapping strategies based on the activity of kairomones produced by microorganisms
