Call 1 - COFUND FP-DYNAMO-PARIS
13 post-doctoral positions available
The call for applications is now open,w e are proposing 21 post-doctoral fellowships in total, currently 13 positions are open.
The COFUND FP-DYNAMO-PARIS programme offers a unique interdisciplinary environment and a fundamental research initiative in the centre of Paris to train the scientists of tomorrow in the field of physico-chemical biology. The goal of the research programme is to integrate knowledge on gene expression, structural and membrane biology, and bioenergetics in bacteria, chloroplasts and mitochondria in the general context of improving our understanding the biogenesis of energy-transducing membranes. Studies will involve cutting-edge technologies including structural biology (NMR, X-ray crystallography and CryoEM), RNA sequencing, mass-spectrometry, synthetic biology, microfluidics, computational modelling and visualization.
Post-doctoral fellows will have the opportunity of developing their research projects in a dynamic scientific environment covering three main research themes:
I) RNA biology from bacteria to chloroplasts,
II) Membrane system dynamics
III) Computational modelling of molecular assemblies.
They will benefit from the supervision of internationally-recognised experts in their fields, a world-wide network of renowned institutions, cutting-edge research infrastructure and state-of-the-art technical know-how that will allow them to hone their scientific skills, make themselves known and increase their competitiveness on the labour market. Specific training will be proposed to ERs through attendance of the EMBO course on “Laboratory Leadership for Postdocs” included in a retreat in Padua, and involvement in dedicated complementary soft skill training events.
