The life sciences sector has developed strongly in recent years, with genomics as one of the key drivers. It is expected that, with the advent of more advanced technologies, this sector will have a growing impact on improving the quality of life. To this end, scientific discoveries must be translated into practical applications and market solutions.
Leiden University of Applied Sciences and BaseClear have both expressed the ambition to increase their expertise in the field of genomics and to focus primarily on micro-organisms. Through further knowledge acquisition in microbiology, our intention is to develop new applications that contribute to social themes such as sustainability and the environment. In doing so, we strive to be an important collaboration and knowledge partner for the academic and the business community.
As Lecturer of Applied Microbiology, you are the ambassador of both organizations. You conduct practice-oriented research into the role of micro-organisms in different ecosystems in humans, animals and plants. You translate the knowledge about microbial strains and microbiomes into commercial applications and to find so-called “bio-based” alternatives to traditional industrial solutions and to improve animal and human welfare.
You lead the members of the research group in an inspiring way. Through research you make an important contribution to the development of the professional field, education and the professionalization of teachers. At the same time, you seek contact with institutes and companies that are in this field and you thereby expand the network. Finally, you provide BaseClear scientific and technical support for commercial projects that realize the intended innovation. You are an enterprising researcher and networker with strong communication skills; someone who takes people along and inspires.
