Science4Refugees European Research Council funded job vacancy Postdoctoral Fellowship on Regulation of Actin Filament Bundle Dynamics

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The 'Regulation of Actin Assembly Dynamics' team at the Institut Jacques Monod in Paris is now recruiting a talented PostDoc Fellow to study actin bundle dynamics and mechanics in an ERC-funded project. The position is opened until fulfilled.

Description

The overall objective of this project is to decipher the dynamics of actin filament bundles. In particular we are focusing on how bundle growth is controlled by the synergy of formin and fascin proteins, as seen in filopodia.
Our state-of-the-art approaches, both in vitro and in vivo, will give us the opportunity to study the mechanosensitivity of actin bundles with single molecule accuracy.
Major tool is live (cell) fluorescence single molecule imaging, using microfluidics to control biochemical and mechanical conditions.

We are seeking a highly motivated scientist with prior experience in cell biology or biophysics/biochemistry. Experience in quantitative fluorescence microscopy, image analysis, microfluidics, is a plus. The candidate should be very creative and ready to work in an interdisciplinary team.

The position is for 2 years and subject to renewal.

To apply, please send a CV, a publication list and contact information of at least two references to Antoine Jégou (antoine.jegou@ijm.fr).
