Postoctoral Research Position in Cellular Microbiology
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position funded by the
European Union in the group of Dr. Alain Filloux. Candidates should
have a PhD in Molecular Microbiology or Cellular Biology, and with an
interest in the molecular basis of pathogenicity in Pseudomonas
aeruginosa and the use of Caenorhabditis elegans as host organism.
This position will be offered for a period of three years.
The group of Dr. A. Filloux is part of a dynamic and
multidisciplinary teaching and research community at the Institute of
Structural Biology and Microbiology located in Marseilles, France. In
the most recent years the research line has been focused on secretion
of virulence factors by P. aeruginosa. More recent developments have
focused on molecular mechanisms of bacterial adhesion and
host/pathogen interactions (Vallet et al., 2001, Proc. Natl. Acad.
Sci. USA, 98: 6911-6916).
The successful candidate will be expected to have general Molecular
Biology and Microbiology expertise, preferentially with a solid
background on the use and manipulation of the nematode C. elegans.
Because of the funding source the candidate is expected to possess a
Candidates should send a CV, together with the names, addresses and
e-mail of two referees, to Dr. A. Filloux, CNRS-IBSM-LISM, 31 Chemin
Joseph Aiguier, 13402 Marseille Cedex 20, France, or by e-mail to
