3-year post-doctoral position: Super-resolution imaging of bacterial division
Applications are opened for a postdoctoral position at the Pneumococcus group – Institut de Biologie Structurale (IBS) – UMR5075 (CNRS/CEA/UGA), Grenoble (France)
Bacterial cell division is coordinated by a large protein complex (the divisome) which ensures cell integrity and cell shape maintenance. We still do not understand how all this complex assembles and the dynamics and the regulation of the divisome along the cell cycle remain obscure. We will address these questions in the human pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae through a research program combining bacterial genetics and super-resolution imaging.
Required qualifications and experience
Ph.D. or post-doctoral experience in single-molecule localization microscopy (experience in 2-color PALM/dSTORM will be a plus).
How to apply
Applications (CV, motivation letter and 2 reference letters) should be sent to: Cécile Morlot.
