International PhD Programme @ Institute of Molecular Biology

Our International PhD Programme (IPP) gives talented and enthusiastic students the opportunity to undertake PhD research at the cutting edge of modern biology. Projects within the Programme address key questions related to the overarching theme of Dynamics of Gene Regulation, Epigenetics & Genome Stability.
Our groups cover a broad range of expertise in biochemistry, genetics, cell and developmental biology, bioinformatics, systems biology, and applied physics.The fields we study range from embryonic development, ageing and disease to analysis of high-throughput datasets, modeling of regulatory gene networks and the development of ground breaking super-resolution microscopes.

Institute of Molecular Biology

This range of expertise and the open and vibrant atmosphere within the Programme encourages multidisciplinary collaborations and innovative research. Moreover, a range of scientific and social events are organised to ensure high levels of exchange and collaboration between the participating groups.

The Programme is coordinated by the Institute of Molecular Biology - a recently founded centre of excellence in the life sciences. Participating groups are located at the:

There are over 30 groups participating in the IPP. For a full list, please see:

PhD @ the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland

An exciting opportunity for a PhD student has arisen in the areas of population genetics. This is a structured four-year PhD project, supported by Science Foundation Ireland.
The aim of the project is to describe human genetic diversity in the Irish population, and in doing so, outline fine-scale population structure across the island. The project will have strong links to genetic mapping of disease genes, as understanding fine-scale patterns of diversity in a population can inform on study design. The project will involve fieldwork across Ireland, laboratory work in a well-resourced and supportive environment and opportunities for training in the generation, manipulation and analysis of next-generation sequence datasets.

This Is RCSI

Research will be carried out between the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and University College Dublin, under the supervision of Dr. Gianpiero Cavalleri and Dr. Sean Ennis. This is a four-year project starting during the 4th quarter of 2014 or earlier. Aside from your project work, your development will be further supported via the structured PhD programme at RCSI which offers a variety of generic training opportunities. Fees will be covered in full (for EU students) and you will receive a stipend of EU18,000 per annum.

The successful candidate will:

  • Have a minimum of an upper second-class honours Undergraduate degree in genetics, bioinformatics, computer science, statistics or related undergraduate science degree.
  • Experience in LINUX and/or R computational environments is desirable but not essential.
  • Be highly motivated and have the initiative to work independently when required.

PhD @ Wageningen University


We are looking for

An emerging area of common interest to the five 'Food Chairs' constituting the Food Science cluster of Wageningen University is to develop a system approach within the food science domain in relation to the overarching agri-food challenges. These challenges can be addressed by a system approach, including its dynamics. Areas of particular interest are Food Digestion Dynamics and Food Production Dynamics. The former envisages the understanding of food and its digestion as one system. The latter is on understanding the food and its production chain as one system.

Student life at Wageningen University

The specific work in the PhD project will concern the building of a systems dynamics approach for food safety microbiology by linking quantitative risk assessments with omics data. Phenotypic behaviour including adaptive stress response and survival, transfer and growth of pathogenic organisms in foods are coupled with transcriptome and genome data. Impact of food-relevant stresses on phenotypic diversification and convergent evolution will be assessed for selected foodborne pathogens.
  • Food Safety System Dynamics aims to address the fate of food microorganisms as they move throughout the food chain, explicitly including interdependencies and feedback loops down to a molecular level, unravelling the interdependencies between different stages in the food chain and on different levels of scale. It specifically studies quantitatively the fate of these organisms, and on the other side tries to understand the mechanisms of the overarching behaviour.

We ask

For this position we request a prospective PhD student, who has an MSc-degree or equivalent in (food) microbiology, biotechnology, Bioinformatics or in food science & technology and a genuine interest in quantitative microbiology and statistics. The project requires a dedicated, creative individual, with broad academic skills. The project will start as soon as possible.

We offer

  • We offer you a temporary position for a period of 1.5 years with extension of 2.5 years after successful evaluation.
  • Gross salary per month € 2083,-  in the first year rising up to € 2664,- per month in the fourth year.
  • We not only offer a competitive salary but also good (study) leave and a pension of the ABP Pension Fund.

More information

For more information about this position, please contact Marcel Zwietering, Chair Food Microbiology telephone number +31 317482233
For more information about the contractual aspects, please contact Rob van Meegen, HR-advisor, telephone number +31 3174 85466
You can apply online at until  October 6th, 2014.

We are

The Food Microbiology group is one of the five groups constituting the Food cluster domain at Wageningen University and Research centre.The Agrotechnology & Food Sciences Group is part of Wageningen UR where fundamental and applied sciences complement each other. As an important international player, we carry out top-level research and work alongside authoritative partners within the international business world as well as the government on 'Healthy food in a biobased society'. We have a crucial role in innovations within the market. Entrepreneurship and professionalism are what define us. In short, we are an interesting, international employer of stature.
