Del 15/02/2024 al 29/02/2024
two-year contract funded by the EU project PANVIPREP
Descripción de la oferta

The ViMaC team at AFMB, under the leadership of Juan Reguera, is excited to announce a Post-Doctoral position for a young scientist interested in contributing to our program focused on the structural and functional characterization of membrane-associated replication complexes in emerging RNA viruses.

Utilizing structural biology as a focal point, our goal is to establish a multidisciplinary research project that integrates our structural findings into the broader context of cellular and animal infection. We have a wellestablished network of collaborators, and we anticipate the biomedical potential of our research to span from the development of attenuated vaccines to the creation of new antiviral drugs aimed at combating emerging RNA viruses. This project is both ambitious and challenging, offering the potential for significant impact.

The ViMaC team is a dynamic and growing group with a diverse, multinational, and inclusive environment. We prioritize scientific career development and emphasize the quality of life within our laboratory. Situated at AFMB, an institute with a substantial track record in studies on emerging viruses, we boast state-of-the-art structural biology facilities, including protein production and purification labs, radioactivity facilities for biochemical experiments, X-Ray facilities, and a Cryo-EM facility equipped with a state-of-the-art 200 kV TEM, Falcon 4i direct electron detector, and Selectris X imaging filter. Our laboratory is located at the Luminy campus, adjacent to the national park of les calanques and the vibrant city of Marseille.

Perfil buscado

We are actively seeking candidates with a Ph.D. in biochemistry or structural biology, possessing a background in protein expression and purification. Ideally, candidates will have experience in cryoEM or XRay crystallography. The position starts with a two-year contract funded by the EU project PANVIPREP.
Don’t hesitate to contact us for having further information about the project.
