Ph.D position is available for international student in the integrated research area of wastewater-based epidemiology and bioinformatics at Molecular Ecology and Health (MECOH) Lab of Ehime University, Japan (Application deadline: 30th April 2022)
Description of the position
The selected PhD candidate will work on wastewater-based epidemiology mainly targeting pathogenic viruses. WET Lab (e.g., DNA/RNA isolation and purification from wastewater, q-PCR) and DRY Lab research (e.g., Phylogenetic analysis, Next-generation Sequencing (NGS)-data processing) will be integrated; their weight balance will be determined based on the expertise and research interest of the candidate. Previous experiences with high-throughput data analysis (e.g., NGS bioinformatics), molecular laboratory analysis (DNA and RNA), and/or wastewater-based epidemiology (e.g., viral detection/quantification) is an advantage.
