Postdoctoral position in homologous recombination

Postdoctoral position in homologous recombination

Institut Curie
Dynamics of Genetic Information CNRS UMR3244
Chromosome Dynamics and Recombination team
Paris, France

A postdoctoral position is available from January 2020 (open until filled) in the team of
Valérie Borde at the Curie Institute in Paris.
The position is initially for 2 years, funded by the Fondation pour la Recherche Médicale.

Project description
Our research work focuses on the mechanisms of DNA double-strand break repair during
meiotic recombination, using budding yeast and the mouse as model systems. By
combining genetic, molecular and genomic approaches, we are aiming at
characterizing the factors involved in regulating homologous recombination. Based on
our recent work, the present project will be focused on setting a new proteomic
approach to identify such factors in budding yeast, during meiosis and somatic growth.

Place of work
The successful applicant will join an international team in the Dynamics of Genetic
Information department, which comprises several teams studying genetic and
epigenetic stability using a variety of approaches with a strong focus on bioinformatics.
The department belongs to the Curie Institute, which provides a vibrant international
research environment as well as state of the art core facilities.

How to apply?
We invite applications from highly self-motivated individuals with a strong interest in
chromosome biology and genome stability. Expertise with yeast genetics and/or
proteomic approaches would be a plus but is not mandatory.
Candidates holding, or shortly expecting to be awarded, a PhD degree in related fields
are encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should send a CV including publication record, a brief description
of their research interests and contact details for two referees to Valérie Borde
