Doctoral scholarship holder in the area of Microbiology
The research group ENdEMIC (Environmental Ecology & Applied Microbiology) investigates the impact of air pollution on environmental/ecological and microbiological/immunological aspects. The proposed PhD project aims at exploring the effects of air pollutants on the composition of the microbial community on the leaves of plants and trees (the phyllosphere). More insights in the specific shifts in the microbiome of plants will lead to new ways to combat air pollution by novel air purification strategies.
