  • 2 YEARS POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AT CENTER FOR STRUCTURAL BIOCHEMISTRY (CBS) IN MONTPELLIER, FRANCE

    Luca Costa
    Structure and Dynamics of Membrane Assemblies Team
    Biophysics and Bioengineering Department
    http://www.cbs.cnrs.fr/index.php/en/home-equipeb3


    SCIENTIFIC PROJECT AND JOB DESCRIPTION:
    The project is focused on the development of a novel Atomic Force Microscope imaging mode based on tip-sample energy transfer at nanoscale to image living cells membranes with high spatial and temporal resolution.
    The project is clearly at the frontier between Physics and Biology/Biochemistry. At first, the proposed development will permit the characterization of forces at nanoscale avoiding the use of linear/non-linear harmonic oscillators as in the case of AFM, SFA and optical tweezer. Indeed, short range interactions will be quantified by means of advanced single-molecule fluorescence techniques improving by orders of magnitude the force resolution of conventional AFM modes.
    The PostDoc will work in close collaboration with Dr. Pierre-Emmanuel Milhiet and Dr. Emmanuel Margeat and is expected to build/develop this unique instrument participating in ongoing in-house R&D programs of the team, mainly focused on biological membranes remodeling projects. The position is supported by a CNRS MOMENTUM 2017 grant (http://www.cnrs.fr/fr/cnrsinfo/les-laureats-de-lappel-projets-cnrs-momentum).

    SCIENTIFIC ENVIRONMENT:
    CBS (http://www.cbs.cnrs.fr) is an Institute dedicated to research at the forefront of structural biology and biophysics. It also proposes facilities in these fields. Montpellier is a stunning city on the French Riviera with a significant international community. The research of our group is focused on the development and use of advanced microscopies (AFM and single molecule fluorescence microscopy) to decipher the molecular mechanisms associated to the organization and remodeling of
    biological membranes. The group includes 10 people with 5 permanent researchers. The team has a longstanding record in the training of young apprentices and the activity of mentoring young people is part of the position.
