A 2 years post-doctoral position is available immediately at the 
Laboratoire de Physique des Solides (University Paris XI) to study 
DNA-DNA interactions and DNA conformation in confined and condensed 
state. We are particularly interested in the structure of DNA inside the 
bacteriophage capsid in vivo and in vitro. The project includes 
bacteriophage and bacterial receptor protein purification, and imaging 
and analysis by cryo-electron microscopy, cryo-electron microscopy of 
vitreous sections (CEMOVIS) and cryo-electron tomography. The candidate 
will join a multidisciplinary team including physicists and biologists 
specialized in DNA, with expertise in cryoTEM and Xray diffraction.

The successful candidate should have a PhD or equivalent in structural 
biology or biophysics and previous experience in cryoelectron microscopy 
and/or virus and protein purification.

Applications including a CV, statement of interests and the names of two 
references should be send to francoise.livolant at u-psud.fr
