Postdoc position available
Pasteur Institute in Lille (France)

A Postdoctoral position is opening at the Pasteur Institute in Lille (France) working with Dr. Gissot on the characterization of transcription factors of the apicomplexan parasite Toxoplasma gondii. The laboratory is interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms controlling differentiation and stage conversion in T. gondii. The project received funding from the French National Research Agency (ANR) for 3 years. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, molecular biology or related discipline, be highly motivated, and be able to critically evaluate and interpret data. Previous experience in regulation of gene expression and the wide array of techniques to examine transcription factors function will be appreciated. Experience with apicomplexan parasites is not mandatory. Ability to interact with a diverse working environment composed of parasitologists, biochemists and bioinformatic staff is required. The Pasteur Institute is located in Lille, France (1 hour from Paris, 1h30 from London and 30 mins from Brussels) and has cutting edge transcriptomics, proteomics and microscopy platforms.

Candidates should send their Curriculum Vitae and three references to:
