Master 2 Internship February-July 2020 Subject: structural and functional studies of a membrane protein responsible for drug efflux.
The student will purify the protein and measure ligand binding using a liposome-based method. Structural studies using electron microscopy and X-ray scattering will be performed. Dynamic and talented students with a strong background in biochemistry and a taste for biophysics and structural biology are encouraged to apply.
The intern can then apply for a thesis scholarship via the Doctoral school in June.
For more information, please contact Valérie Biou: biou(at)
