[Expired] A post-doctoral position in structural biology is available at the ChemSyBio team (Paris-Saclay University, INRAE, Micalis) headed by Dr Olivier Berteau

The project involves structure determination of novel metalloenzymes by X-ray crystallography, with a focus on enzymes catalyzing peptides (RiPPs) post-translational modifications. Our goal is to decipher the mechanism and mode of interactions between these enzymes and their substrate.

We are seeking for a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow with a proven experience in X-ray crystallography. The candidate should have a PhD in structural biology and a good knowledge of crystallography software. He/She should have an experience in protein expression, purification, crystallization and the ability to work in a multi-disciplinary environment. Skills in molecular biology and physico-chemical techniques would be an asset.

Recent publications from our team include: Balty et al., 2020 JBC; Balty C et al. 2019 JBC; 294(40):14512-14525; Parent A. et al. 2018 J Am Chem Soc. ; 140(7):2469-2477.; Benjdia A et al. 2017 Nature Chemistry ; 9(7):698-707;  Parent A. et al. 2016 J Am Chem Soc.; 138(48):15515-15518;  Benjdia A. et al.2016 Chem Commun.; 52(37):6249-52; Benjdia A. et al. 2015 Nat Commun; 6:8377.

Access to state-of-the-art research facilities will be provided. Our laboratory (Micalis institute) is part of Paris-Saclay University and located near Paris. The position is offered for one-year, renewable up to 3 years. The salary will be commensurate with experience.

Applications (including CV, description of your research activity indicating your relevant skills and reference letters) should be sent to Dr Alhosna Benjdia () and Dr Olivier Berteau ().
