A National Research Infrastructure for Biological Imaging

PhD Thesis: Probing the Multiscale Dynamics of Individual Chromosomes in the Nucleus of Mammalian Cells with Advanced Imaging Techniques

Organization: Institut Curie, laboratoire Physico Chimie

Position Information:

Our group is seeking to recruit a PhD student, funded via a European program at Institut Curie, to work on novel optical microscopy techniques applied to live cell nuclear imaging, using a combination of 3D imaging modalities (multifocal and light-sheet microscopy) and genome editing tools. The aim is to study the biophysical organization and dynamics of chromosomes in live cells. The thesis project stands at the crossroads between optics, physics, genome biology and cell biology. 

We are looking for motivated candidates, with background in physics or biophysics and with an interest in microcopy. The candidate should not have spent more than 12 months in France during the last 3 years. Interested candidate should apply on Curie website on the following the link:

The link gives also more details about eligibility rules and selection process. The application deadline is fixed for February 5th 2017, 17:00 CET.
