In the frame of an ERC project, the postdoc will be in charge of studying the roles of lipids in plant autophagy. The project aims at characterizing the nature, dynamics and functional implication of lipids in the formation of the autophagy vesicles, the autophagosomes, as well as identifying the underlying molecular mechanisms.
To establish and run experimental approaches:
• Lipidomic and proteomic analyses
• Characterization of lipid/protein interactions
• Generation of gain- and loss-of-function transgenic mutant lines of Arabidopsis
• Multiscale phenotypic characterization of Arabidopis mutants: molecular, cellular and physiological
• In vivo studies of protein localization by confocal microscopy
The candidate is expected to:
• Have theoretical and technical expertise in lipid biochemistry (extraction, purification, quantification, protein interaction assays): preferred but not mandatory
• Have strong bases of molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology
• Have experience in plant biology
• Exhibit individual initiative, work independently, be technically proficient and accurate, possess attention to detail, collaborate with other team members, have a strong commitment to science
• Must possess strong communication and analytical skills, including excellent English communication skills, verbal and written
The postdoc will work at the Laboratory of Membrane Biogenesis (UMR5200) under the direction of Amélie Bernard and in collaboration with several lab members in the context of the ERC 'LIP-ATG' which aims at decrypting the functions of lipids in autophagosome formation in plants.
