[ccp4bb] Postdoc position - Structural cell biology - Institut Curie Paris

Job title: Postdoctoral Research Assistant (molecular motors)
Job location: Institut Curie, Paris, France

Job closes: 21-June-2017


A post-doctoral researcher position is available in the Structural Motility laboratory directed by Anne Houdusse to undertake research on molecular motors. In collaboration with cell biologists and biophysicists, the project aims at understanding the precise cellular role of cytoskeleton motors important for tumour proliferation using a combination of state-of-the-art cell biology, biochemistry and structural biology. The studies are a collaborative effort between the laboratories of the structural biologist Anne Houdusse, expert in molecular motors and the cell biologists Phong Tran and Bruno Goud, both from the same department (UMR 144) at Curie Institute. 

The successful applicant is expected to employ state-of-the-art structural biology, cell biology and biophysical approaches to conduct molecular and structural studies on disease-relevant human molecular motors. 


I am looking for enthusiastic, self-motivated Ph.D. graduates with a strong publication record and expertise in molecular biology, biochemistry, X-ray crystallography or electron microscopy who will welcome working in an interdisciplinary group with a friendly atmosphere and excellent resources. Experience with structure determination by crystallographic methods or EM is a must. Please send a CV, a one-page research experience summary and contact information of three references to anne.houdusse@curie.fr.   Please write “Post-doctoral position” in the subject header.
