[ccp4bb] Post-doctoral position in chaperone structural biology in Paris

Dear All,

Please find bellow the announcement for a post-doctoral positon available in Paris.

Best regards,


A post-doctoral position is available to study the structural basis of chaperone-dependent protein translocation in the Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Biology of Eukaryotes (CNRS UMR8226) at the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique in Paris, France.

Our laboratory is looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow with a background and experience in biochemistry and structural biology. Our lab studies the structure and function of the molecular chaperones Hsp70 and Hsp90, with a particular emphasis on understanding the structural bases of chaperone regulation by cochaperones and small molecules. The lab projects combine structural techniques with functional approaches for the study of chaperone-dependent protein folding, assembly and translocation using biochemistry, biophysics and X-ray crystallography.

The project involves molecular biology, protein biochemistry and structural approaches by X-ray crystallography and Cryo-EM. Our lab is fully equipped for  protein purification and is supported by the institute’s structural biology platform with state of the art robotics.

The Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique (IBPC) offers a highly dynamic social and scientific environment in the heart of the Paris student district (Quartier Latin) on the Montagne Sainte Geneviève hosting the largest concentration of research institutions in the city.

The successful candidate must have a PhD in biochemistry or structural biology with a demonstrated track record of productive research, and be able to work independently. Previous experience in protein production and X-ray crystallography is highly desirable and experience in cryoEM would constitute an advantage.

The position opens in January 2019, Post-doc will be funded for up to two years.

Applications including a cover letter, CV, and the email addresses of two to three references should be made online on the CNRS employment website:
