A postdoctoral position is available in the team "Control of cell shape remodeling" headed by François Payre at the Center for Integrative Biology - Toulouse (France). We are interested in the homeostasis of digestive tissues in Drosophila (intestinal and renal) and we seek to understand the mechanisms that control, proliferation and survival of somatic adult stem cells. For this, we use the fly Drosophila melanogaster as a model system. Through multi-scale approaches combining biochemistry, genetics and cell biology, we seek to understand the mode of action of the transcription factor Ovo / Shavenbaby. You will find more information on the lab web page (http://cbi-toulouse.fr/en/team-payre-lab).
The position will be funded for two years (FRM grant) and should ideally begin in early 2019. We are looking for candidates who are interested in cell biology and development and have robust expertise in RNAseq / ChipSeq. The candidate will work as a team with a senior research associate (CNRS, fly genetics) and a PhD student (NGS data processing).
- The candidate must hold a PhD in Biology at the time of starting the position.
- Experience in RNAseq / ChipSeq and / or other NGS is required.
- The candidate must have scientific publication (s) as a first author.
