Experience in protein biochemistry, membrane proteins, protein transport across membranes and the biology of Bacteroidetes would be advantageous.

Applicants should  hold a PhD in Molecular Microbiology or obtain it before June 2020 and must be able to conduct their work independently.

The candidates must be experiencing an "international mobility", meaning that they shall not have resided or carried out their main activities (job, studies...) in Belgium for more than 24 months during the last 3 years directly before the first stay as a Postdoctoral fellow.

Selection process

The selected candidates will be interviewed at the University of Namur or by Skype for candidates living outside Belgium.

Additional comments

The URBM (www.urbm.be) gathers researchers studying bacteria at all levels of integration from molecular to cellular bacteriology and their relationship with eukaryotic hosts.

The unit provides an extremely good research environment with access to several facilities and opportunities to interact with laboratories ofthe other research units of the University of Namur (https://www.unamur.be/en/research).

The University of Namur, located in the center of the city of Namur, the capital of Wallonia in Belgium, gathers about 6,000 students. The city is located close to Brussels National airport (60 km) and Brussels South airport (35 km), and is easily accessible by train from anywhere in Belgium.
