Microbiology lecturer at UL gets €75,000 Marie Curie Fellowship

Image
Dr Achim Schmalenberger, a lecturer in microbiology at University of Limerick (UL), has been awarded a €75,000 Marie Curie grant by the European Commission to take his soil microbiology research to the next level.

The Marie Curie Fellowship itself is a start-up research grant for researchers who are beginning their first full-time research position at a university. It is funded through the EU's Marie Curie programme.

It was back in 2010 that Schmalenberger joined the Department of Life Sciences at UL, having left his position as post-doctoral research officer at University of Sheffield.

His current research interests lie in soil microbiology, plant growth promotion, plant-microbe-microbe interaction, microbial soil sulphur cycling and microbial weathering.
