POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN CELL IMAGING to study SARS-CoV-2 cell interactions
The postdoctoral position is available in Anne Brelot’s group in the Dynamics of Host-Pathogen Interaction Unit directed by Jost Enninga (Institut Pasteur, Paris). Anne Brelot ‘s research focuses on the dissection of viral entry processes and Env-Receptor interactions, with an emphasis on HIV and SARS-CoV-2. These viruses are responsible for AIDS and COVID-19, respectively.
The candidate will work on an interdisciplinary project that aims to study SARS-CoV-2 cell interactions using cell biology, live cell imaging, and super-resolution imaging. These studies will provide important information on the COVID-19 pathogenesis.
The successful candidate should have a doctoral degree in biology and documented experience in virology, cell biology, real-time microscopy. A background in intracellular trafficking, advanced imaging technologies, or virus-cell interaction would be advantageous. The candidate should be able to interact with members of an interdisciplinary consortium of cell biologists, computer scientists, and biophysicists, and possess excellent interpersonal and scientific communication skills.
Our unit is part of the Cell Biology and Infection department. We work in a dynamic and international team with a strong sense of collaboration.
The full-time position is available starting in March 2022. It is already fully funded by the Pasteur Institut for 3 years. Salary and social benefits will be in accordance with the regulations of the Pasteur Institut.
