We are looking for a motivated post-doctoral scientist to join the research team “Membrane dynamics & viruses” (MDV) headed by Raphael Gaudin, part of the IRIM UMR9004 - CNRS research institute, Montpellier, France. Our lab is interested in various aspects of intracellular trafficking pathways in health and disease. In particular, we are currently studying secretion of biological entities out of the cells, including extracellular vesicles and viruses. We recently discovered a novel extracellular vesicle subtype containing Sonic Hedgehog (Shh) we called ART-EVs (Coulter, Dorobantu et al. Cell Rep, 2018) and we aim to better characterize these vesicles and their secretory route. The proposed project will take advantage of state-of-the-art imaging techniques, Crispr-Cas9 strategies and other innovative approaches mastered in the lab.
The successful candidate is expected to perform bench work and communicate his/her results through internal and external seminars. The project will be conducted in collaboration with two other labs with in vivo and proteomics expertise.
You are going to defend or already hold a PhD in Cell biology with experience in membrane trafficking. Previous experience with exosomes or extracellular vesicles is a plus. You are curious, motivated and have a problem-solving mindset. The applicant is expected to speak English, while French is not a prerequisite.
The contract is for 1 year renewable.
