Positions for PhD Students and Postdocs: Structure and function of DNA replication and chromosome maintenance machineries, Basel, Switzerland
Open positions for PhD students and postdocs are available in the newly established Bleichert lab at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research (FMI) in Basel, Switzerland. Our research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of nucleic acid transacting machines involved in DNA replication and chromosome maintenance. Exciting opportunities currently exist in our group to study mechanistic links between DNA replication and chromatin architecture using an innovative mix of biochemical, structural, biophysical and genetic tools. We therefore encourage applications from highly motivated PhD and postdoctoral candidates with different backgrounds, including molecular biology, biochemistry and/or structural biology.
The Bleichert group provides a stimulating environment within the FMI, a world-class basic research institute with excellent internal support. The Institute focuses on fundamental questions in multiple areas of life sciences, and has excellent state-of-the-art research facilities (including an X-ray crystallography facility and an EM center with a Titan Krios electron microscope equipped with K2 camera and phase plate, among many others).
Applications for postdoctoral positions should be submitted electronically at www.fmi.ch/opening by June 15, 2017.
Candidates for PhD studentships should apply through our International PhD Program (http://www.fmi.ch/Training/PhD/). Please note that there are two application deadlines per year (usually May 1, Dec 1). Interested candidates who wish to apply outside the period of these open calls should contact Franziska Bleichert directly by email.
Applications should include a motivation letter, a CV, and names and email addresses of at least two referees.
For further information, see http://www.fmi.ch/Careers/JobDetails.html?jobID=214 or contact Franziska Bleichert (firstname.lastname@example.org).
PhD position in Molecular mechanisms of pre-mRNA splicing, University of Evry, France
This PhD project is funded for three years by a CIFRE contract between the SABNP laboratory (INSERM research unit UMR1204 http://sabnp.univ-evry.fr/?
The PhD student will combine biochemical, structural, cellular and high-throughput gene expression approaches to characterize the actions of novel molecules on splicing factors interactions and on pre-mRNA splicing. This project is supervised by Prof. David Pastré and Dr. Alexandre Maucuer.
Additional information: http://sabnp.univ-evry.fr/?
Interested candidates should send their application, including a CV and cover letter, detailing their motivation for this particular PhD project, to email@example.com.
The project will start around October 1, 2017; closing date for application is June 30, 2017.
Guidelines for posting a vacancy
