POSTDOCTORAL POSITION to study chromatin dynamics and function in
An INRA post-doctoral fellowship is immediately available in the Laboratoire
de Biologie Cellulaire of INRA (Versailles - France) for a non-French
candidate to study chromatin organisation and gene regulation in plants. By
analysing a collection of Arabidopsis mutants, we have recently identified a
new gene having characteristic motifs for protein/protein interaction and
for chromatin interactions also present in drosophila and animal
(unpublished data). The Arabidopsis protein also presents a specific and
interesting nuclear localisation. The main objectives for the postdoctoral
researcher will be to elucidate (1) the function of this protein in the
organisation and dynamic of the chromatin, (2) its mode of action by
identifying its partners and (3) its influence on gene regulation and plant
The position is open to a recent PhD or current post-doctoral fellow with
experience in chromatin-related techniques or in plant molecular biology.
Enthusiasm for understanding the role of chromatin modulation in gene
regulation and development and a strong background in molecular biology and
genetics is desirable. Expertise in protein analyses, protein/protein
interactions and immunology would be a greatly appreciated.
The appointment will be for 2 years and the starting date is as soon as
possible. To apply, please send by email a CV, a brief statement of research
experience and interest and the names and email addresses of two referees.
