Postdoctoral Position on Cellular Morphogenesis Using High-resolution Fluorescence Microscopy

Institut Pasteur

Paris, France

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral candidate with a background in biophysics, physics, engineering, or chemistry to measure the dynamics of cell-envelope biogenesis in live bacteria at the single-protein level using high-resolution microscopy. Single-particle tracking is combined with different modes of microscopy, physical modeling, as well as methods from cell biology and genetics (e.g., CRISPRi) to build a molecular and physical understanding of the determinants of bacterial morphogenesis.

We have already constructed a custom microscope with high stability and precision that allows us to image protein dynamics in 2D at high resolution. Here, we aim to extend our capacities to follow proteins in 3D using an engineered point-spread function and improving protein labels.

The interdisciplinary lab is generally interested in how single cells control and coordinate shape, volume, cell-cycle progression, metabolism, and other aspects of physiology in view of fluctuations of both intra- and extracellular conditions. We have developed tools to control cellular physiology through precise modifications of gene expression, and we have established a broad repertoire of microscopy-based methods to extract single-cell and sub-cellular properties. The lab is composed of students and postdocs from physics, biology, and bioengineering.

The candidate is expected to bring experience in quantitative microscopy and possibly image analysis. Experience in microfluidics, physical modeling, or bacterial genetics is beneficial.
