Microalgae are promising sources for production of renewable energies. Our group focus on the study of algal photosynthesis, lipid and hydrocarbon metabolism and aims to dissect major pathways and their regulations on energy conversion and storage in the model microalga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. This project aims to study the regulation of photosynthetic carbon metabolism and lipid storage.
- Use genome editing tools such as Crispre-cas9 to creat algal mutants
- study and characterize these mutants in terms of physiology and lipidomics
- Study and characterize interacting proteins of the target
- Write papers and publish the results
Talented and highly motivated candidates with a PhD or master degree in metabolism, biochemistry or cell biology are encouraged to apply. Experience in working with Chlamydomonas is a plus. French is not compulsory, but good English language skills are expected.
The Institute of Biosciences and Biotechnologies Aix Marseille (BIAM) is a Joint Research Unit (UMR) composed of about one hundred permanent employees and about fifty non-permanent employees (fixed-term contracts, doctoral and post-doctoral students, trainees). The UMR is located on the CEA Cadarache site and on the campus of the Faculty of Science of Luminy. BIAM's fundamental research projects aim to understand the mechanisms involved in the response and adaptation of living organisms to environmental constraints and to develop technologies dedicated to the preservation of the quality of our environment. They are conducted according to several multidisciplinary approaches on model organisms (algae, plants, bacteria) or on the most adapted organisms from biodiversity studies.
