A postdoctoral contract of 2 years is available in the “Microbial
diversity, ecology and evolution” team
(http://www.ese.u-psud.fr/rubrique7.html?lang=en) at the institute of
Ecology, Systematics and Evolution starting from October 2016 (dates are
negotiable). The institute belongs to the French Research Council (CNRS)
and the University of Paris-Sud, and is located at the pleasant
university campus of Orsay, a botanical garden 25 km south of Paris, 30
min by direct train (RER B line).
The scientific project aims at exploring the evolution of stramenopiles
using comparative genomics and phylogenomic approaches, with special
emphasis on heterotrophic species to better understand their adaptations
to very diverse environments.
The postdoc will be funded by the French ANR Agency. The net salary will
be of ca. 2000 euros depending on the candidate experience and includes
social security and medical assistance.
We are looking for highly motivated candidates with interest in
protistology and strong knowledge on genomics and bioinformatics.
Candidates should send a CV, a cover letter and the names of at least
two referees to:
