FWF funding for new PhD program in Microbial Symbioses


A new PhD program in Microbial Symbioses will be funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) project MAINTAIN and the University of Vienna. The central theme, addressed in 14 interconnected projects, is studying how symbiotic relationships between microbes and other organisms evolved and function, and how they are maintained in an ever-changing environment. The faculty of the program includes PIs from the Centre for Microbiology and Environmental Systems Science, the Faculty for Life Sciences, and the Faculty of Chemistry. The program is coordinated by Jillian Petersen and Matthias Horn. 

The program will start soon. Stay tuned!
