[ccp4bb] PhD student position at CBI/IGBMC Strasbourg

Ph.D. student position in cryo-electron tomography


A PhD position is available in Mikhail Eltsov’s team at the CBI/IGBMC to study chromatin structure-based mechanisms of epigenetic silencing (http://www.igbmc.fr/igbmc/recrutement/job_offer/505/).

Institut de Génétique et de Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire

The CBI provides a leading-edge scientific and technological environment in integrated structural biology to address the structure and function of biological systems, notably on gene _expression_, from the atomic, molecular to the tissue scales. The CBI http://www.igbmc.fr/grandesstructures/cbi/, hosts the French and European Infrastructures for Integrated Structural Biology, FRISBI http://frisbi.eu/, Instruct-ERIC https://www.structuralbiology.eu/ and iNext-Discovery https://instruct-eric.eu/news/eu-inext-discovery-grant-provides-technologies-for-key-research-in-structural-biology/, which comprises advanced electron microscopy facilities equipped with cutting-edge instrumentation such as Titan Krios and Polara cryo electron microscopes, cryo Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscope (FIB/SEM) and super-resolution fluorescence microscopy http://frisbi.eu/centers/instruct-center-france-1-igbmc/cryo-electron-microscopy/. The Titan Krios microscope is equipped with Cs corrector, Falcon 3 camera, GIF energy filter, K3 camera and phase plate. The installation of a high-end screening microscope is planned during 2020. In addition, the EM facility has a suite of associated equipments for sample preparation and dedicated computing resources for image processing and 3D reconstruction by single particle cryo-EM and cryo electron tomography (cryo-ET) and software developements. For projects and publications of the associated teams see http://www.igbmc.fr/research/department/3/


For details of the project and other enquiries, please contact Prof. Mikhail Eltsov. To apply, please email your motivational letter, CV, copies of your university degrees and names of referees to mikhail.eltsov@igbmc.fr
