The Laboratory of Bioenergetics and Protein Engineering (BIP, CNRS-AMU UMR7281)-Team of Biophysics of Metalloproteins- is seeking for a highly motivated candidate for a PhD thesis on characterization of new iron-sulfur proteins in giant viruses.
Message: We are seeking for a highly motivated candidate for a PhD thesis on characterization of new iron-sulfur proteins in giant viruses. The PhD candidate will develop several chemical, biochemical and biophysical approaches including iron-sulfur reconstitutions, elementary analyses, spectroscopic methods (including CD, EPR, MCD) to characterize new iron-sulfur proteins recently discovered in giant viruses, their structure and function (see description of the proposal below).
The candidate should have a M.Sc. degree (or equivalent) in Chemistry, Physical-Chemistry or Physics. Background in Biology is not mandatory but the candidate should have a strong interest for interface between Chemistry and Biology.
The Laboratory is located in downtown Marseille in a large CNRS (French Research National Center) research campus gathering many technical facilities and scientific platforms. The Biophysics of Metalloproteins team has a long-standing expertise in metalloproteins including iron-sulfur proteins, using several biophysical approaches such as EPR spectroscopies.
Salary per month is around 1300 € net and duration of the PhD is 3 years. There is also teaching opportunity at the Aix-Marseille University depending on the CV of the candidate. Help in finding a suitable lodging will also be provided.
Interested candidates must contact Dr. Bénédicte Burlat () and Pr B. Guigliarelli () as soon as possible (deadline of the proposal 9th of May 2017), joining their CV, a motivation letter, and the name of two reference persons.
Important: Selected candidates will be interviewed the 15th or 16th of May by the Doctoral School Committee in Marseille (or by visioconference).
Expires on Tuesday May 9th, 2017
