A pioneer in ocean science, IFREMER’s cutting-edge research is grounded in sustainable development and open science. Our vision is to advance science, expertise and innovation to:
With more than 1,500 personnel spread along the French coastline in more than 20 sites, the Institute explores the 3 great oceans: the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific oceans. A leader in ocean science, IFREMER is managing the French Oceanographic Fleet and its dedicated scientists create ground-breaking technology to push the boundaries of ocean exploration and knowledge, from the abyss to the atmosphere-ocean interface.
Well-established in the international scientific community, our scientists, engineers and technicians are committed to advance knowledge about our planet’s last unexplored frontiers. They provide the science we need for informed decision-making and public policy and they transfer this knowledge and technology to businesses to fulfill public and private needs. Core to our mission is also to strengthen public awareness about the importance of understanding the ocean and its resources, and empowering future generations of leaders through education and outreach national campaigns.
Founded in 1984, IFREMER is a French public organization and its budget approximates 240 million euros. It is operating under the joint authority of the French Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation, the French Ministry for the Ecological and Solidary Transition, and the French Ministry of Agriculture and Food.
The Roscoff marine station (SBR) constitutes an ideal scientific and logistical environment for the research project of “Génomique des Vibrios” team thanks to the presence of technological platforms (bioinformatics, imaging, crystallography, aquariums) and basic research projects developed in the departments (ecology, biology of marine microorganisms). Conversely, the team roots its scientific questions and experimental models in the needs of applied research that Ifremer must conduct (pathogenic oyster bacteria).
The position is part of the ERC advanced DYNAMIC project, which aims to understand the role of phages in the eco-evolutionary dynamics of pathogenic hollow oyster vibrios.
Under the supervision of the scientific leader of the project, he/she will work in close collaboration with a technician to perform experimental work and a bioinformatician for the in silico analyses.
He/she will be in charged of a specific aim of the DYNAMIC project, which is to understand the co-evolutionary processes underlying interactions between bacteria and phages in nature.
He/she will collaborate with CEFE- CNRS Montpellier for the statistic analysis. This co-supervision will involve short stays at Montpellier and regular exchanges by visioconference.
PhD in microbiology, environmental microbiology
