A 2 years postdoctoral position is available in the group of Dr. Laurent Terradot in the Unit Molecular Microbiology and Structural Biochemistry of the Institut de Biologie et Chimie des Protéines (IBCP, CNRS-University of Lyon), Lyon, France. We are interested in structure function of protein-protein complexes involved in Helicobacter pylori pathogenesis. This bacteria is a major human pathogen that causes human diseases such as ulcers and gastric cancers. The position is dedicated to the understanding of Helicobacter pylori Type IV secretion system by the determination of several protein-protein complexes by X-ray crystallography or Cryo-EM. Preliminary data are already available for several protein samples.


You will carry out a research program in Structural biochemistry. You will design, perform protein complex purification protocols and perform X-ray crystallography or Cryo-EM experiments


We are looking for enthusiastic and self-motivated individuals with a strong background in Protein purification and Structural biology. Experience in the study of protein complexes would be a plus.
Knowledge in Macromolecular Crystallography and/or Cryo-EM would be considered a strong advantage but is not mandatory.

Work Context
