The BBV laboratory (EA2106) from the University of Tours studies plant specialized metabolisms by combining both metabolomics and transcriptomics approaches. Besides unraveling biosynthetic pathways, our goal is to provide alternative supply of plant natural products by creating microbiological cell factories. Our english-speaking lab offers all facilities (computing grids, LC-MS/MS, greenhouses, confocal microscope) to achieve and efficient research and benefits from funds from the European H2020 program, the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) and from regional research programs. Please visit us at: (https://twitter.com/BBVEA2106_Tours) (https://www.facebook.com/BBVEA2106/). For this project, you will work under the supervision of Dr. Vincent Courdavault (https://twitter.com/v_courdavault).
What we are looking for :
We are looking for a full-time postdoctoral researcher that will be involved in an exciting research program funded by the Région Centre-Val de Loire and focusing on the elucidation of the biosynthetic pathway of highly valuable plant natural products with a particular emphasize on lignans. The candidate will carried out the RNA-sequencingand genome sequencing of several lignan-producing plants. By conducting an extensive analysis of these newly developed datasets (gene coexpression networks, gene clustering for instance), the recruited researcher will predict candidate genes involved in lignan biosynthesis. These genes will be further validated by functional genomic and biochemical approaches performed in close collaboration with other post-docs from this project in charge of the transferring the whole in microbiological cell factories. The recruited researcher will also benefit from the expertise of several assistant professors and other post-docs from EA2106 with recognized skills/experience in the study of the NP biosynthesis/metabolic engineering;
What we offer
We offer a two-year fellowship opening in May-June 2021. The eligible fellow will be granted social security benefits and will be paid 27 000-28 000€ (net wage) per year.
To apply, please send your detailed CV (including list of publications), motivation letter and appreciation letters from two referees at email@example.com. Applications are welcome from now and until the position is filled.
- PhD in plant molecular biology, plant bioinformatics or plant biotechnology
- Hands-on experience in bioinformatics, RNA sequencing, scRNA sequencing, gene expression networking or other NGS workflows is mandatory.
- General skills in molecular biology
- Spirit team and will of taking initiatives
- Proficient use of the English language for both oral and written communication
