  • microbial ecophysiology of biofilms
  • microbial biotechnology (e.g. waste treatment) and chemical engineering
  • integration of metagenomics or metatranscriptomics, with reaction rates in metabolic pathways identified through metabolomics.

Expressions of Interest:

Interested individuals are invited to submit an expression of interest (CV & cover letter), and to discuss specific research ideas, by e-mail before 18thJuly 2014 to:
 with the subject line: ‘Marie Curie EoI’

We will then select one applicant to work with on submitting a proposal for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie EUROPEAN FELLOWSHIP

If funded, the applicant’s research would be hosted by Drs Gavin Collins, Cindy Smith and Florence Abram in the School of Natural Sciences at the National University of Ireland Galway (, and with opportunities to work alongside colleagues in Civil & Environmental Engineering.
