Postdoctoral position in molecular mechanisms of plant-virus interactions
A full-time postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the
team of Molecular Virology at the Institut Jacques Monod, Paris, France
(http://www.ijm.fr/en/ijm/home-page/) as part of a project funded by the
ANR. This position is initially funded for 2 years with possible
A multidisciplinary approach using a combination of molecular, cell
biology, biochemistry and systems biology methodologies will be developed
to study the roles and mechanisms by which the ubiquitylation system
regulates the interaction of Arabidopsis with viruses (Camborde et al.
Plant Cell (2010), Chenon et al. EMBO J. (2012)).
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a PhD degree, a
strong background in molecular biology, biochemistry or plant biology, and
a good record of peer-reviewed publications. Excellent writing and oral
communication skills are essential.
Previous experience in molecular plant-microbe interactions is a plus, but
not a formal requirement.
The application should be submitted electronically as a single pdf file to
Dr. Isabelle Jupin (jupin from ijm.univ-paris-diderot.fr) and should contain a
cover letter summarizing qualifications and motivation to work on this
project, a CV with a full publication list, and names and contacts of
three references. Reviews of applications will begin immediately and the
position will remain open until filled.
