  • Structure and activities of microbial communities
  • Microbial interactions and interactions with macroorganisms
  • Population biology of microorganisms
  • Microbes and surfaces (adhesion and biofilm formation)
  • Microbial community genetics and evolutionary processes
  • (Global) element cycles and biogeochemical processes
  • Microbial life in extreme and unusual little-explored environments
