International Postdoc Opportunity in Cellular Membrane Biology and Nanotechnology- Institut Curie, Paris, FRANCE

Ashley Brady
December 14, 2016


You are highly motivated to discover new principles in cellular membrane biology, and would like to join the interdisciplinary community at Institut Curie in the center of Paris? Based on our recent discoveries on galectin-driven endocytosis (Nat. Cell Biol. 16:595-606) and DNAnanodevices for molecular imaging (Nat. Nanotechnol. 11:1112-1119), you would analyze endocytic events with unmatched precision using some of the most powerful techniques in modern cell biology: quantitative live cell imaging on a newly acquired lattice light sheet microscope in combination with lipidomics and proteomics on purified uptake carriers. For this program, the Endocytic Trafficking and Intracellular Delivery team in the Chemical Biology Department ( of Institut Curie in Paris is recruiting a post-doctoral researcher on an ERC-funded position. Within a striving research center with more than 80 groups and 1,100 scientists, the successful candidate would have access to leading edge equipment (

Requirements and position details:
• Strong experience in cellular biochemistry and/or advanced light microscopy
• High degree of motivation and excellent interpersonal and communication skills
to operate in an interdisciplinary environment between different teams
• Position available mid-2017
