Two positions in Romain Koszul laboratory.
The team aims to explore the regulatory mechanisms and roles of chromosome folding in yeast and bacteria through a combination of state-of-the-art techniques including synthetic biology, chromosome conformation capture derivatives, and engineered chromosomal systems. We aspire to sustain a creative, dynamic and friendly environment, providing all members with the freedom, resources and support to conduct their projects and gain momentum for their future careers. The ability to work in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary environment is essential: microbiologists, geneticists, physicists and computer scientists work synergistically in the lab and we also enjoy well-established collaborations in these fields. We expect future lab members to take full advantage of this environment to tackle ambitious, exciting projects.
The laboratory is recruiting persons to work on ERC projects aiming at reaching at a better characterization and understanding of the functional organization of genomes of yeast and bacteria, in the continuity of our recent work. We will try to decipher further the fundamental processes that drive genome reorganization during transcription, replication, and segregation events. This will be done by combining existing tools from the lab, as well as through the development of new methods.
We are recruiting postdocs with experience or interest in yeast chromosome biology.
We are welcoming applicants from all backgrounds, genetics, molecular microbiology, as well as biophysics and biostatistics, the only requirement being a strong interest, and ideally a publication track record, in working at the interface between experimental biology and computational analysis. Original funding is for 2 years, with possibility of extension up to 5 years. We are also looking for research engineer with strong experience in molecular genetics.
Candidates should email a CV, statement of research interests (motivation letter) and names of two references to Romain Koszul (firstname.lastname@example.org). Received applications will be reviewed immediately.
Starting dates as early as September 2019.
