MASTER – Microbiome Applications for Sustainable food systems through Technologies and EnteRprise is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. A work-package of this proposal focuses on manipulating rumen microbes for optimal animal performance (feed efficiency and methane production). In animal (or cattle) studies, the rumen microbial community structure is characterised using next-generation sequencing (amplicon 16S or RNASeq). Additionally, data on fermentation parameters, enteric methane emissions, microbial metabolism, metabolomics and animal performances are collected.
We are searching for a highly motivated candidate, with a solid statistic background and experience in the analysis of omics data for developing logarithms for data integration. The aim is to enable a better understanding of the functional processes occurring in the system and provide more valuable information for predictive models of the observed animal phenotypes. The successful candidate will be involved in data analysis, but also dissemination (presentations at relevant meetings and scientific articles publication).
