General information

Reference : UMR5168-JOHDEC-003
Workplace : GRENOBLE
Date of publication : Monday, April 12, 2021
Type of Contract : FTC Scientist
Contract Period : 18 months
Expected date of employment : 1 June 2021
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : From 2648€ to 3768€ gross monthly salary
Desired level of education : PhD
Experience required : Indifferent


The main objective of the project is to reveal the molecular players (genes and proteins) of photosymbiosis in eukaryotes (symbiotic relationship between a host and a symbiotic alga). More specifically, the candidate will analyze transcriptomes of different photosymbioses and experimental conditions in order to study the functioning and acclimation of the interaction and more specifically to better understand the metabolic connectivity via transporters.


- Cultivation and field collection of symbiotic organisms
- single-cell transcriptomics
- bioinformatics analyses: transcriptome assembly, functional gene annotation, phylogeny
- Creation of database and management (genomes-transcriptomes-reference genes)
- Communication through international meetings and workshops.


- PhD in genomics, cell biology, plankton ecology (viruses, bacteria or protists)
- Knowledge and expertise in bioinformatics for the analysis of genomes, transcriptomes (single-cell transcriptomics) and proteomes (prokaryotes or eukaryotes).
- Knowledge and previous experience with microalgae and plants, photosynthesis, marine plankton and symbiosis will be appreciated.
- Ability to work independently in an interdisciplinary environment, and to interact in a young and international research group.

Work Context

The candidate will be part of the Photosymbiosis team (photosymbiosis.com) of the Cell and Plant Physiology laboratory (UMR 5168 - CNRS -CEA - Univ. Grenoble Alpes - INRAe) hosted by the CEA of Grenoble. He/she will be recruited thanks to a CNRS ATIP-AVENIR funding. The projects of the team aim to better understand the functioning of unicellular photosymbiosis by combining subcellular microscopy approaches and omics techniques (metabol, transcript, prote-OMICS). He/she will benefit from i) the expertise and knowledge in metabolism and physiology of photosynthetic organisms (plants and microalgae), ii) the proteomics platform of the EDyP team (Exploring the Dynamics of Proteomes), iii) and an interdisciplinary environment in Grenoble in microscopy and bioinformatics.
