PhD position in molecular modeling of cellular condensates at CBS Montpellier (France)
A 3-year PhD position starting October 1st 2021 is available in our team at the CBS Montpellier (http://www.cbs.cnrs.fr/index.php/en/home-equipea6) within the Labmuse Epigenmed PhD training network on "Regulated protein-nucleic acid compartment formation in the signaling of fundamental biological processes" (see attached flyer).
The PhD student will focus on multi-scale molecular modelling to investigate nuclear and cytosolic protein/DNA condensates in close collaboration with Dejardin and Laguette labs (IGH, Montpellier) with the final goal of translating the experimental results obtained by our partners into a comprehensive, physics-based picture and to explore the general thermodynamic principles of cellular condensates.
We are looking for students with a solid background in the physical sciences (e.g. physics, chemistry, and engineering) who have a keen interest in studying biological systems.
Candidates will have to apply to the competitive Labmuse Epigenmed call (Deadline: May 26th, 2021)
More information on the PhD training network and the application process are available at: https://filesender.renater.fr/?s=download&token=9dc97060-c53a-4a54-b73a-b6be13b85690
The CBS welcomes each year many interns of all levels, from high school to post-doctorate. Applications (CV and cover letter) should be sent directly to researchers from CBS teams.
PhD students are recruited through the CBS2 Doctoral School.
