Post-doc Position in Virus-cell Interaction and Real-time Microscopy: France

We are looking for an outstanding, highly-motivated candidate to join our team to develop a new project entitled: « Real time imaging of single viral RNA translation: understanding further how murine leukemia viruses (MLV) hijack the cellular pathways! ».

Understanding how retroviruses manipulate the cellular functions to replicate is crucial to design anti-viral therapies. Research project will aim to set up advanced technologies of real-time fluorescence microscopy (SunTag, SunRISE) at the scale of single molecule of viral RNA to understand MLV expression in cells. The project will be realized with the collaboration of Philippe Pierre’s lab in Marseille who have developed these techniques.

Candidates bringing expertise in fluorescence microscopy and image analysis are particularly welcome to apply. Prior research experience on virology would be an asset, but is not essential.
Starting date end 2019 (very flexible); 2-year contract financed by Infectiopole Sud.
