29 Jul Join the team!!! open positions on the ERC project
Job application is now open for a PostDoctoral researcher in the team to be part of the SymbiOCEAN project ! (application link below). If you like 3D imaging and plankton symbioses, don’t hesitate to contact us and apply.

Mission: The postdoctoral project is part of the SymbiOcean project funded by an ERC consolidator grant, which aims to study plankton photosymbiosis from the ocean at the subcellular, molecular and ecological scales. The main objective of the postdoctoral project is to understand the morphological changes of a symbiotic marine alga by applying 3D cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-TEM), with a particular focus on the structural organization of the chloroplast in free-living versus symbiotic stage. The researcher’s mission will be to collect and cryofix planktonic symbioses in the ocean during the TREC expedition (https://www.embl.org/about/info/trec/expedition/) for observation using 3D electron microscopy. The researcher will benefit from the team’s network of collaborations in Grenoble and within the TREC consortium
