Beschreibung: The PhD project ‘Microbial and host myo-inositol (MI) usage in the gastrointestinal tract of laying hens’ will study the use of MI as a carbon source for bacteria and in host cells. Bacteria actively growing in the small intestine of two contrasting high-yielding laying hen strains will be studied to explore their potential to use MI (13C-labelled) forming of short chain fatty acids or the respective precursors, which are essential substrates for host metabolism. In addition, the direct MI utilization in host cells is of interest.

-> wanted: PhD student engaged to work in the field of microbiology using stable isotope probing techniques in anaerobic enrichments from the chicken gut, mass spectrometric analyses of proteins and metabolites.

The PhD project will be part of the framework of the second funding period of our Research Unit ‘P-Fowl’ (https://p-fowl.uni-hohenheim.de/en/projects2nd) supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). This provides an excellent and interdisciplinary research environment and allows interactions with various experts in animal and life science. The overall objective of the Research Unit is to explore and understand the genetic, epigenetic, and non-genetic variations in the formation of inositol phosphate derivatives and myo-inositol by endogenous phytases and their relevance for phosphorus utilisation, microbiome, and animal physiology in laying hens.

Your profile: PhD candidates should have a MSc in microbiology, biology, life sciences, agricultural science or related disciplines. Women are explicitly encouraged to apply. Physically disabled persons will be favoured if they are equally qualified.
