CALL FOR APPLICATIONS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF MARINE BIOLOGY
TEAM PHYSIOLOGY AND BIOLOGY

FULL-TIME POST-DOCTORAL POSITION 
 

Application deadline: 6th april 2021

 

Presentation:

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow in cell biology to join the Coral Physiology team at CSM. Corals and other cnidarians are becoming increasingly important model organisms in diverse aspects of cell biology, including investigations into development, evolution, environmental stress and biomineralization. Our focus is primarily cellular control of biomineralization for which exciting new frontiers are starting to open up (e.g. Sun et al. 2020 PNAS; Tambutté et al. 2020 Cell and Tissue Research).
We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to investigate the biology of calcifying cells in different tropical coral species and under different experimental conditions. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to interact with a team exploring the potential roles of diverse cellular processes in driving biomineralization.

 

Candidate profile:

- PhD degree related to cell Biology or cell Physiology,
- Experience in electron and/or confocal microscopy techniques,
- Experience of molecular and bioinformatics approaches,
- Ability and willingness to conduct laboratory work,
- Excellent written and oral communication skills in English,
- Ability to write publications for peer-reviewed scientific journals,
- Ability to work independently and self-guided, but likewise within an interdisciplinary research team.

 

Type of contract:

Initial appointment (ca. 2800 euros net + health insurance and pension) is for 12-months, with possibility of extension for a second year (subject to funding and performance). It will ideally start in between May and September 2021.
The position is supervised by Dr. Sylvie Tambutté (team leader), in collaboration with all team members.

 

Submission documents:

Interested individuals are invited to submit an application package including :
- a motivation letter explaining reasons for applying and how they meet the hiring criteria outlined above,
- a research project of 1 to 2 pages including a brief description of the methods, materials and equipment required,
- a CV,
- a copy of PhD certificate,
- name and address of at least two referees.
 
These application documents must be submitted as a single pdf to Sylvie Tambutté stambutte@centrescientifique.mc
Note: Application review will begin immediately and the position will remain open until the position is filled.
