POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN CELL IMAGING to study SARS-CoV-2 cell interactions

Job description

The postdoctoral position is available in Anne Brelot’s group in the Dynamics of Host-Pathogen Interactions Unit directed by Jost Enninga (Institut Pasteur, Paris). Anne Brelot’s research focuses on the dissection of viral entry processes and Env-Receptor interactions, with an emphasis on HIV and SARS-CoV-2. These viruses are responsible for AIDS and COVID-19, respectively.

The candidate will work on an interdisciplinary project that aims to study the entry mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 using challenging tools and the use of high-end technologies (live cell imaging, and super-resolution imaging). We will establish the organization of ACE2 at the cell surface and its distribution under changing parameters (cell types, variants, partners) in order to decipher how these parameters influence the viral entry route. This project will help understand how the virus interact with its host and identify promising antiviral targets.

Your qualification

The successful candidate should have a doctoral degree in biology and documented experience in virology, cell biology, real-time microscopy. The candidate should be able to interact with all members of the project consortium, composed of cell biologists, computer scientists, physicists, and biophysicists. Excellent interpersonal and scientific communication skills are expected.

Our Offer

Our unit is part of the Cell Biology and Infection department. We work in a dynamic and international team with a strong sense of collaboration.

The full-time position is available from October 1st, 2022. Funding by the Institut Pasteur for 3 years is already available. Salary and social benefits will be in accordance with the regulations of the Institut Pasteur.

To apply, please send your complete application to anne.brelotpasteur.fr  including a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, and the names of three references.
