The post-doctoral fellow will participate in the “Et-Nod” project that studies the role of effectors of the type III secretion system in the symbiotic interaction Bradyrhizobium/ legumes. The project focusses specifically on a new class of effectors that can trigger the symbiotic program of the host (ET-Nods or effectors triggering nodulation). The hired researcher will be involved in the mutagenesis of the studied Bradyrhizobium strains and their phenotypic characterization as well as the functional characterization of already identified ET-Nods. ET-Nod is a collaborative project with teams in the LSTM in Montpellier (Dr. Eric Giraud) and the LIPM in Castanet-Tolosan, Toulouse (Dr. Laurent Deslandes).
The main activities will be the following: bacterial mutagenesis, plant culture and characterization of symbiotic phenotypes, microscopy, analysis of protein-protein interactions. The post-doctoral fellow will report regularly through oral presentations and written reports to host team members and ET-Nod project partners.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in microbiology, bacterial genetics or molecular biology or related fields. She/he will have a solid background in the field of plant-bacteria interactions (symbiosis and/or pathogenesis). Previous experience in bacterial mutagenesis, yeast-two hybrid, protein co-immunoprecipitation, fluorescence and confocal microscopy, generation of transgenic plants will be useful for this project. The candidate will frequently exchange with the partners in this project and report to them. Good communication skills are required.
The host team, the Plant-Bacteria Interactions team, belongs to the Department of Microbiology of the Institute for Integrative Biology of the Cell (I2BC), dedicated to fundamental research on the biology of the cell. The institute belongs to the Paris-Saclay University and is located on the CNRS campus in Gif-sur-Yvette, in the South-Paris region.
The host team is composed of 5 researchers, 5 PhD students and 5 technicians. Its research focusses on symbiotic and pathogenic interactions of bacteria with plants or insects.
The post-doctoral researcher will join the Et-Nod project which is a collaborative ANR project with teams in the LSTM in Montpellier (Eric Giraud) and in the LIPM in Castanet-Tolosan, Toulouse (Dr. Laurent Deslandes).
