2-years postdoc position in the team « DNA Recombination, Replication & Genome Stability » Institut Curie, Orsay, France
We are seeking for a highly motivated postdoc to join our team in the Genome Integrity, RNA and Cancer unit research. We are engaged in understanding how replication stress is resolved in space and time using the fission yeast S. pombe as a model organism. We use a combination of approaches, such as genetics, live cell imaging, genomics and molecular biology to understand how recombination, repair and chromatin-based processes resolve replication stress within the sub-nuclear architecture of the genome (Ait Saada et al. Mol Cell 2017, Teixeira-Silva et al. Nature Communications 2017, Hardy et al. PLoS Genetics 2019, Ait Saada et al. Life Science Alliance 2019).
The ideal candidate will hold a PhD, have prior research experience in molecular genetics, and a track record of peer-reviewed publications. Experiences in genomics, yeast genetics, RNA biology, and fluorescence microscopy are desirable but not required. The position is funded for 2 years and will start in March/April 2020.
Application, including a cover letter giving a brief description of previous achievement, a CV and at least one recommendation letter should be sent as a single pdf file to before February 3rd, 2020.
