Postdoctoral position: Purinergic signaling and inflammation IGF CNRS Montpellier, France

A two years postdoctoral position is available in the group of Francois Rassendren at the Institute Functional Genomics in Montpellier, France.

Our group is interested in the involvement of P2X purinergic receptors in inflammation at cellular and integrated levels.

Our current project aims at deciphering intracellular molecular events downstream of P2X receptors, leading to the activation of inflammatory pathways. Through a proteomic approach, we plan to identify the signaling complex associated with P2X receptors in immune cells that are involved in the activation of intracellular pathways leading to the release of pro-inflammatory mediators.

The successful applicant should have a PhD degree, or being about to finish a PhD thesis and have strong backgrounds in biochemistry, particularly proteomics, molecular and cellular biology. Preference will be given to applicants with previous experience in membrane protein biochemistry and primary cell culture. Prior knowledge in cellular immunology, lentiviral-mediated gene transfer, microscopy and imaging is a plus.

The Institute of Functional Genomics enjoys a dynamic and international scientific life animated by weekly seminars, scientific retreats and high-level meetings.
