A National Research Infrastructure for Biological Imaging

Postdoctoral position on cellular morphogenesis using high-resolution fluorescence microscopy (Paris, France)

Organization: Institut Pasteur

Position Information:

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral candidate with a background in biophysics, physics, engineering, or chemistry to measure the dynamics of cell-envelope biogenesis in live bacteria at the single-protein level using high-resolution microscopy. Single-particle tracking is combined with different modes of microscopy, physical modeling, as well as methods from cell biology and genetics (e.g., CRISPRi) to build a molecular and physical understanding of the determinants of bacterial morphogenesis.
