Soil-borne diseases result in large crop losses for farmers and are very difficult to control. However, the use of suitable compost can suppress the growth of a number of soil-borne pathogens. Compost application works well in organic farming in the field, but the protective effect varies from compost to compost. Although compost thus represents a very promising alternative to the use of chemicals, basic research is needed to identify the protec-tive factors and to translate them into field applications and tangible benefits for Swiss farmers. The project will entail the description of the composition of the compost microbiome over time, the identification and characteri-zation of individual strains that display a protective effect against plant pathogens, and the elucidation of the molecular mechanisms causing this effect. Together, they contribute to our longer-term goal of applying such disease-suppressive strains to compost for the biocontrol of soil-borne pathogenic fungi in a sustainable fashion. A PostDoc position is available for a highly motivated scientist with a broad background in bioinformatics data analysis. The successful candidate will join the research group “Molecular Diagnostics, Genomics and Bioinfor-matics” at the Competence Division “Method Development and Analytics” in Wädenswil.
