One Research Engineer position is available for 24 months in the Cell and Plant Physiology Laboratory (Univ. Grenoble Alpes, France) and more specifically in the team Chloroplast Proteome Dynamics and Biogenesis, to work on chloroplast biogenesis using Arabidopsis as a model.

The main objective of the ANR funded collaborative project "POLYGLOT" is to characterize the translation platforms associated with plant mitochondria and chloroplasts, and to explore the functions and regulations of mRNA targeting and translation at the surface of organelles. This project associates colleagues from IBMP Strasbourg and our team in Grenoble.


The mission of the Research Engineer, in the frame of POLYGLOT, will be to characterize the cytosolic ribosomes bound to the surface of chloroplasts, i.e. to determine their composition and how they interact with the chloroplast surface. He/she will also explore the mechanisms of mRNA targeting to chloroplast, using approaches previously developed in the teams of Grenoble and Strasbourg.


Candidates must have a PhD in biological sciences. They should be able to work independently and cooperatively within a team. An expertise in plant molecular biology, biochemistry and plant biology is required. Preference will be given to candidates who have hands-on experience with RNA technologies, high-throughput screening and bioinformatics. Experience in organelles biology would be helpful but is not a prerequisite.

Work Context

The working place is the Cell & Plant Physiology Laboratory, 17 rue des Martyrs, 38054 Grenoble cedex 9, France.

This laboratory ( is a joint unit of the University Grenoble Alpes, CNRS, INRA and CEA.

The position is open in the Chlorogenesis team:

Additional Information

The Cell & Plant Physiology Laboratory studies the dynamics of the plant cell. This research, conducted at both the molecular and cellular, is then placed in the context of the whole plant during its development and subjected to changing conditions of the environment.
