A 24 months postdoctoral position is available from September 2017 in our group, based at the CRBM, Montpellier, France (http://www.crbm.cnrs.fr/index.php/fr/).
Current work in the lab analyzes the role of flotillins, new metastatic markers, in the deregulation of intravesicular trafficking favoring cellular invasive behavior. In collaboration with biophysicists, combining cutting edge cell biology and microscopy techniques (optogenetic, super resolution, correlative electron microscopy), we investigate how flotillins influence membrane organization and remodelling.
PhD in cell biology or biochemistry is required, with a strong background in cell biology of vesicular tracking, membrane remodelling and protein/membrane interactions.
Skills on developing imaging techniques to study membrane remodelling processes in cellulo and in reconstructed systems in vitro will be highly valued. Interest in interaction with scientists expert in modelisation of protein/protein and protein/lipid interactions would be highly appreciated.
We are looking for highly motivated and creative Ph.D. The candidate must be able to work independently, as well as demonstrate a strong commitment to team based work with strong organization skills.
