OFFER DESCRIPTION

The COFUND FP-DYNAMO-PARIS programme offers a unique interdisciplinary environment and a fundamental research initiative in the center of Paris to train the scientists of tomorrow in the field of physico-chemical biology. The goal of the research programme is to integrate knowledge on gene expression, structural and membrane biology, and bioenergetics in bacteria, chloroplasts, and mitochondria in the general context of improving our understanding of the biogenesis of energy-transducing membranes. These studies will involve cutting-edge technologies including structural biology (NMR, X-ray crystallography, and CryoEM), RNA sequencing, mass-spectrometry, synthetic biology, microfluidics, computational modelling, and visualization. Post-doctoral fellows will have the opportunity of developing their research projects in a dynamic scientific environment covering three main research themes: i) RNA biology from bacteria to chloroplasts, ii) Membrane system dynamics and iii) computational modelling of molecular assemblies. They will benefit from the supervision of internationally recognised experts in their fields, a worldwide network of renowned institutions, cutting-edge research infrastructure, and state-of-the-art technical know-how that will allow them to hone their scientific skills, make themselves known, and increase their competitiveness on the labor market. Specific training will be proposed to ERs through attendance of the EMBO course on “Laboratory Leadership for Postdocs” included in a retreat in Padua, and involvement in dedicated complementary soft skill training events.

Selection process

 

Assessment criteria and evaluation process

The position is intended as an initial step in a research career, and the assessment of the applicants will primarily be based on their research qualifications and their potential as researchers with skills that complement and strengthen on-going research within the partner institutions.

Step 1. The applications of each eligible candidate will be evaluated by independent international experts within the relevant research theme. Eligible applicants will be evaluated based on merits, motivation for the program, academic excellence and personal qualifications such as collaborative and communication skills.

Step 2. A maximum of three candidates will be retained for a video interview with the independent experts for each open position (Nov 2021). After the interview, candidates on the short list will be invited to a conference call with the project supervisor and a DYNAMO board member to define the general scope of the project, the training and the research environment. Candidates will be asked to draft a 3-page project proposal, bringing their own original ideas and will be given 2 weeks to submit it.

Step 3. Each project proposal will be evaluated by one of the independent experts and the DYNAMO board member who evaluated the candidate in the previous steps. The final selection will be made based on the scores obtained at steps 1, 2 and 3. The minimum score must be above 20/40. Top candidate will be offered the postdoc position with a starting date from January 1- May 31, 2022.

Additional comments

Selected candidates will be offered a two-year postdoctoral or early researcher contract (1 year renewable; 38h30 hours/week) at the CNRS in the selected research area and partner institutions. The employment benefits include health insurance, pension, and a mobility allowance.

Gross salary will vary with candidate’s experience starting at 3106€/month before taxes (around 2500€ after taxes) for candidate with less than 2 years post-doctoral experience. See the official CNRS salary table for researcher at http://labexdynamo.ibpc.fr/fp-dynamo-paris/
