Postdoc position in Molecular Microbiology

UNIVERSITE PARIS 11 is delighted to offer a postdoc position. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply. The deadline for applying this position is February 08, 2015.

The Molecular Microbiology of Actinomycetes team is part of the newly created Institute of Integrative Biology of the Cell (I2BC). It is located in the University Paris Sud, in Orsay, in the south of Paris (France). Our team is mainly interested in the secondary metabolism of Streptomyces species (http://www.igmors.u-psud.fr/spip.php?article1572). Our approaches vary from the detailed investigation of gene clusters of specific natural product families (diketopiperazines, pyrrolamides) to a more global (genomic) study at the strain level. We are also developing synthetic biology approaches for the development of new biologically active metabolites.

A postdoctoral position is available in our laboratory to work on the synthetic biology of two families of natural products, the pyrrolamides and the aminoglycosides. The research project aims at increasing the chemical diversity of natural products and at improving the currently limited understanding of the key factors influencing the outcomes of these two technologies. This project will be carried out in collaboration with chemists from the team of Laurent Micouin (Université Paris Descartes, Paris). The position, which is available from April 2015, is funded by the French National Research Agency for 32 months.

Application Requirements
We are looking for highly motivated candidates who have completed their PhD in life sciences. The successful applicant must have a strong background molecular biology and microbiology.

Experience in microbial natural products biology and chemistry (purification and analysis) is desirable. Experience in protein purification would be appreciated.

How to apply?
Please send your application with a cover letter and CV (including a list of publications and contact information of 2-3 referees).
