Post-Doctoral Position Available In cell biology and biophysics
Please note that the job is no longer active!
This project is coordinated by Grégory Giannone (CNRS UMR 5297, Biophysics of Adhesion and Cytoskeleton, Interdisciplinary Institute for NeuroScience, Bordeaux, France). The team of G. Giannone is studying actin and adhesion protein dynamics during cell motility (Cell 2004; Cell 2007) using pioneering optical and biomechanical methods (Biophys J, 2010; Nano Letters 2013; Cell Reports 2013; Nature Cell Biology 2012). Our team will provide an excellent multidisciplinary working environment in the University of Bordeaux, France.
The general goal of our project is to decipher at the molecular level the dynamic and force-modulated interactions between integrins and their regulators within adhesion site (AS). Using super-resolution microscopy and single protein tracking, we recently deciphered the molecular mechanisms of integrin activation within AS (Rossier et al., Nat Cell Biol, 2012). However, to understand the molecular mechanisms controlling the life cycle of AS, it is crucial to study the distribution and dynamics of integrin regulators at the nanoscale level but also their interactions and mechanical responses. We will pursue a multidisciplinary approach combining single protein tracking and super-resolution microscopy, micro-patterned substrates, image analysis and mechanical engineering.
We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow expert in cell biology or optics or mechano-biology.
