A 3 years post-doctoral position funded by the Labex IBEID is available in the team of Ali AMARA. Start date is from June 2016.

This project aims to decipher the molecular mechanisms regulating flavivirus entry program using Dengue and Zika viruses as a model. Our objective is to use a combination of gain and loss of function screening and proteomics techniques in order to fish new flavivirus entry receptors and to study their function in virus binding and internalization. This project will be performed in collaboration with Olivier Schwartz' Lab (Virus and Immunity Unit, Pasteur Institute).

For this position, a doctoral degree, experience in cellular and molecular biology, virology, CRISPR Cas9 technology, and proficiency in English, are required. Interested candidates should send a motivation letter, a CV, a list of publications and 2 reference letters to A. Amara (Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs.
