The candidate will develop a scientific project focused on the determination of active and inactive conformations of the vasopressin V2 receptor using cryo-electron microscopy in order to understand its mechanism of action. In collaboration with the team of Patrick Bron at the Centre de Biologie Structurale, this project will be performed using molecular pharmacology, protein biochemistry, cryo-electron microscopy, image analysis and reconstruction of the strucutres of the signaling complexes of this physiologically and clinically very important receptor.

Work Context

The Institute of Functional Genomics (IGF) is a multidisciplinary research centre (CNRS-INSERM-University of Montpellier) which is developing a project focused on the functional genomics of physiological and pathological cellular communications in the fields of neurobiology, endocrinology, oncology and cardiology. There are about 250 people at IGF, with researchers, professors, engineers, technicians, postdoc and student fellows, working in 21 different research teams, 5 technological platforms and common services. The candidate will work both in the "Pharmacology and Structural Biology of Membrane Receptors" team at IGF and in the "Multi-scale Structural Biology" team at Centre of Structural Biology in Arnaud de Villeneuve campus.
