The Institute for Structural Biology, Grenoble, is looking to recruit a PhD student to research 'fluorescent proteins to boost single-particle tracking super-resolution microscopy'.
The recruited student will investigate the photophysical behaviour of fluorescent proteins in the context of single-particle-tracking photoactivated localization microscopy (sptPALM). The goal will be to engineer enhanced variants to improve the quality of sptPALM data. The results will be applied to several biological projects.
Candidates should have a strong background in biophysics and/or biochemistry. Preliminary experience in advanced optical microscopy, protein crystallography or molecular biology will be key advantages.
Applications are now open. Please send a CV, a motivation letter and at least one reference letter to Dominique Bourgeois (firstname.lastname@example.org), before 1 March 2020.
