The PATHSENSE (Pathogen Sensing) ETN investigates the molecular mechanisms of sensory perception in bacterial pathogens. Rapid and sensitive systems to sense and respond to environmental changes are a cornerstone of a bacterium’s survival apparatus, and understanding these sensory systems is central to predicting their behaviour. The team participating in the PATHSENSE Network use state-of-the art methodologies, including structural biology, proteomics & protein biochemistry, molecular biology, bacterial genetics, food microbiology, mathematical modelling, cell biology, microscopy and comparative genomics to tackle this question. It is an inter-sectoral Network that comprises 8 leading Universities, 1 public research institution, 4 companies (from spin-off to large multi-national) and 1 governmental agency.

A vacancy has recently arisen at the University of Dundee. We are therefore looking to recruit a research fellow for 15 months . The position is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 721456.
