A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

A postdoctoral position is available at Institut Pasteur de la Guyane (Cayenne, French Guiana, South America) to work on the microbiota of mosquitoes and their impact on pathogen transmission via a combined field and laboratory approach. Candidates will hold a PhD in a related topic, including bacterial microbiology, vector biology and/or mosquito ecology. Ideally, they will be experienced in analysis of high-throughput sequencing, work in a biosafety laboratory and sterile work/gnotobiology. Their resourcefulness will be an asset to work in the field. Self-motivation is essential.

The postdoc will join the Microbiota of Insect Vectors Group and be involved in a French ANR-funded project studying the effect of the microbiota composition on pathogen transmission in French Guiana, based on our innovative protocol to produce germ-free and gnotobiotic Aedes mosquitoes. This combines fieldwork to study microbiota composition and labwork on germ-free and gnotobiotic mosquitoes, notably vector competence experiments. The exact involvement of the postdoc in this overall project will depend on his/her scientific background and interests.

Our team is composed by four people: Mathilde Gendrin (group leader), Katy Heu (Research Assistant), Ottavia Romoli (postdoc) and Estelle Chabanol (PhD student). The laboratory is located in “Vectopôle Amazonien Émile Abonnenc”, a state-of-the art entomology facility encompassing a BSL3 insectary for mosquito infections with arboviruses; a BSL2 insectary for mosquito infections with Plasmodium; a conventional insectary; laboratory rooms for molecular biology and microscopy; a BSL2 for microbiota cultures and gnotobiology.

Starting date is as soon as possible, with some flexibility, therefore deadline may be preponed. To apply, please send to Mathilde Gendrin (mathilde.gendrin@pasteur.fr) your CV including 3 references and a motivation letter which explains your motivations, indicates how your background fits the project and enlightens some scientific questions that you will specifically want to address in this topic during your postdoc.
