Work Context

The Structural Biology of the Cell laboratory (CNRS UMR7654) at Ecole Polytechnique includes 4 teams representing a continuum of expertise ranging from computational biology to cell biology through structural biology. The post-doc will work in Alexis Gautreau's team, recognized in cell biology for its contributions to the study of the actin cytoskeleton.
