Postdoc for studying meiotic recombination. The main goal is to characterize the molecular mechanisms responsible for interactions between homologous chromosomes during meiotic prophase.


The project will involve cytological and molecular analyses of the prophase of the first division of meiosis in mice. The cells used will be mouse cells in vivo and in culture. A dynamic and temporal study of the events will be performed in particular with imaging approaches.


PhD in biology with knowledge and expertise in molecular and cellular biology, and in nuclear and chromosome biology. Extensive expertise in microscopy, imaging and live imaging is required.

Work Context

B. de Massy's team has identified several key steps for the formation of double-stranded DNA breaks in meiosis in mice. Several analyses were developed using complementary approaches (genetics, microscopy, genomics, biochemistry). One of the central questions in the field is to understand the molecular mechanism of recombination initiation in meiosis. Many questions remain to be elucidated concerning the processes that allow homologous chromosomes to find each other, to pair and to recombine.
