We are looking for a highly motivated post-doctorate fellow to work at the CBS on a segmented plant viruses (Tomato spotted wilt virus, TSWV) and virus with multipartite genome organization (Faba bean necrotic stunt virus, FBNSV).


The candidate will join Patrick Bron's team (Multi-scale structural biology), where she/he will do a structural characterization of both viruses by cryo eletron microscopy - single particle analysis and by cryo electron tomography - sub tomogram averaging. This work is carried out in collaboration with Stephane Blanc's team at BGPI (Biologie et Génétique des Interactions Plantes – Parasites, Inrae, Montpellier).


The candidate should have a PhD in Biology, Biochemistry or Structural Biology and have a strong knowledge and background in cryo electron microscopy, knowledge on plant viruses will be a plus.

It is a 2 years funding by MUSE (Montpellier Université d'Excellence).

Work Context

The CBS is located in Montpellier in the South of France, near the Mediterranean Sea. The CBS is a very attractive working environment with a lot of facilities (NMR, Crystallization, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, AFM, Bioinformatics, Biophysics and Electron Microscopy). The CBS is equipped with a JEOL 2200FS microscope (FEG, 200 kV, in column energy filter) qith a K3 camera (Gatan – Ametek), cryo holders (626 and Elsa). An additional 120 kV microscope will be installed in 2021 for a routine characterization in negative stain and cryo.

Constraints and risks

The candidate should send CV, cover letter, brief summary of previous achievement and contact information of 2 referees.
