Our research group is interested by highly motivated master students that would like to start a PhD in our research unit. If your previous interests were linked to molecular bacteriology and if our research themes could be of interest for you, contact us by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a CV and and a motivation letter. In particular, a possible research topic is related to envelope structure, biogenesis and resistance to external stresses that may be encountreed during host cells infection. A part of the funding is already available to start this research in october 2018.
Our research unit (URBM) is a great place to perform fundamental research in molecular bacteriology. URBM is well equipped, regularly organizes seminars with internal and external speakers, and master and PhD stduents work in a nice atmoshpere. Namur is a peaceful city, culturally active, well connected by train to major belgian cities and close to three airports (Brussels, Charleroi and Liège).
The annual call for PhD fellowship is in august-september. In order to start discussions for potential applications, a contact should be establised around may-june (PhD applications must be planned well in advance). The research teams of the URBM participate in the prepapartion of the PhD applications.
