|Job Description||We are seeking motivated and enthusiastic candidates for a post doctoral position on yeast cell polarity at the CNRS/INSERM/University of Nice Institute of Biology Valrose in Nice, France (http://ibv.unice.fr/EN/index.php).
Different projects in the the laboratory are directed at understanding the molecular mechanisms of G-protein (monomeric and heterotrimeric) and lipid (phosphoinositide phosphate) signaling in both the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and human pathogenic yeast Candida albicans. We are examining cell polarity during yeast mating and filamentous growth. Projects will take advantage of a genetic, biochemical, molecular and cell biological approaches, in addition to state of the art live-cell imaging methods (making use of extensive on site communal microscopy facilities). A primary goal is to elucidate how alterations in activity, levels and distribution of G-proteins and phospholipids result in cell morphology changes in response to different external signals.
|Qualification||Applicants should be highly motivated with a strong interest and experience in Cell Biology. Experience in yeast cell biology, phospholipids, or microscopy methods is a plus. Ability to work independently in the context of a dynamic, interactive research group is essential. Ability to communicate in English is critical.|
|How to Apply||Candidates should send a letter of application and curriculum vitae with names and contact information for two or three referees to Rob Arkowitz (email@example.com)|
