2 PostDoc fellowships in Exolife Science

We advertise the opening of 2 postdoctoral fellowships at University of Copenhagen, in the field of Exolife Science, understood as the overlap field between astronomy, biology, physics, and chemistry. The fellowships are part of the synergy project: “Effects of bacteria on atmospheres of Earth, Mars, and exoplanets”.

Start of all the fellowships is August 15, 2021, or soon thereafter.

The project is part of a total of 6 new synergy positions involving staff at University of Copenhagen from the Niels Bohr Institute, the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Biology. The candidates will work as a team with the common goal of deepening our understanding of the global interactions of life with its surroundings in terrestrial and extraterrestrial environments.

Postdoc project 1: “Physiological adaptations and genomic characterization of microbial extremophiles
The main goal of this project is to manipulate the genomes of selected bacterial, archaeal and fungal isolates in order to enhance their abilities to survive and/or sustain activity under extreme environmental conditions, simulated Martian conditions. The genomic manipulations will include microbial taxa where stable genomic constructs often prove challenging to establish, cyanobacteria. The work will include genetic and physiological characterization of the main isolates to establish the genetic and physiological background for microbial adaptations to the main environmental challenges relating to life on other planets.
Supervision: Professor Anders Priemé, Department of Biology, email: Postdoc project 2: “Synthetic spectra of exoplanet atmospheres with and without biological activity”
The main goal of this project is to develop models for non-equilibrium atmospheric chemistry caused by the existence of life forms, including the influence of gasses produced by micro-organisms in our lab experiments. The focus is on the reaction networks and associated spectrum computation, but can also involve related experimental work and ab initio computations.
