PhD position meant for studies of the "deep terrestrial biosphere"
This interesting research project will investigate the deep biosphere present in terrestrial crystalline rock fracture systems. The project will use ‘multi omics’ on biofilms, activity measurements, single amplified genome interrogations of attached cells, and electron microscopy visualizations to investigate mechanisms for growth and survival in deep terrestrial biosphere microorganisms.
