Biocides are chemical substances capable of killing or inhibiting bacteria and their use have become an integrated part of the industrialized world. The potential negative effects of biocides on development of virulence and antimicrobial resistance in bacteria is to a large extent unknown. The purpose of this project is to study the response of bacteria to selected biocides. The work will include studies of bacterial gene transcription when exposed to different biocides.
Candidates for the Postdoc position should hold a PhD degree in natural or technical sciences with a good experimental background in bacterial molecular biology.
